Pimienta: "The support from the fans is incredible; hopefully, we can give them the victory because it would be very important for everyone."

The coach assessed the match against Valencia as "more than demanding; defensively, they work very well and counterattack without any problem. It's a very important match for us because of what it represents; we're playing at home, and tomorrow could be a good day to win three points."

García Pimienta appeared at the press conference before tomorrow's match against Valencia CF, a rival he described as "I love Valencia; they have that mix of youth and experience. They have addressed their economic problems with academy players. They have been working quietly and occupy a very good place. Following this path, they will fight for European spots."

Here are some of his statements:

"I haven't made an estimation of points; sometimes, salvation is cheaper, and other times, it's more expensive. Everyone tightens up in the second half, and I think we should go step by step, as we have been doing. We have competed in every match, and we must continue like this, focusing only on Valencia."

"The support from the fans is amazing; I want to thank them for what they are doing. I'm sure they will feel proud of the team, and hopefully, we can give them the victory, which would be very important for everyone."

"It's a good time to have everyone back; Julián and Javi are returning. What makes me happiest is that most players are available; it makes things easier for me, but also more difficult at the same time to form the starting XI."

"When things are going well, you don't want to make too many changes, but sometimes you have the feeling that a player has trained better during the week or is more confident. We'll see today's session; I hope nothing happens."

"Sandro is in perfect shape; when you know a player like him, you know what he can bring to the team. He's a forward who combines well, creates dangerous situations, provides assists... I'm very happy with him."
