It’s been a season of disappointments and failures for Valencia Club de Fútbol. At this point in the season I suppose there is a chance the team could be relegated to the second division next year (The three bottom teams in the first division sink into the second division while the three top teams in the second division move up). “Caída Libre,” or “Free Fall” was the headline after a recent Valencia loss. Ironically, after the team's most recent loss they were able to advance in Spain’s Copa del Rey when they split a pair of games with Atlético Madrid. Valencia advanced by scoring more away goals than Atlético. Talk about the skin of our teeth. It looks like next year will be about rebuilding as Valencia did not qualify for the coming Champions League. I'm going to go way out on a limb and say that winning is more fun than losing.

The good news is that the round of 16 of the Champions League begins on February 19 with three Spanish clubs (Real Madrid, FC Sevilla, and Barcelona) still in the competition. As far as the Champions League is concerned, I'd say that Barcelona has more potential but Madrid is playing much better right now. I suppose this means that Sevilla will outperform both of those clubs.
