Valencia will be going up against Juventus on November 27 in UEFA Champion League.

While training for the crucial match, Valencia goalkeeper Roberto Neto said his team has great expectations from this match and that results totally depend on their own performance.

"We have great expectations from this match. We really want to get a result here because at the end it will be the only result that will keep us alive (in UCL), and it depends only on our own performance. We will find a difficult atmosphere here. They are a top side and are upset about their last result in the Champions (League). But the most important thing is that we have great quality and all we need to do is play our own game. And this is all we need to do to get the result tomorrow," he said.

With Manchester United on seven points and facing a home game against bottom club Young Boys of Switzerland on Tuesday, Valencia really have to win at Juventus Stadium to keep their last 16 hopes alive.

Talking about the big match today, Valencia coach Marcelino Garcia Toral said that his team is quite excited for this match and they are coming with the intention to win. 

''This is a football match that we await with great excitement. This is the best clubs' competition in the world. We're coming with the intention to win here. The result will depend on our performance. And with this in mind we are going to play this match. It will be a long match, a difficult one and it may be tortuous but the squad is in good shape. It will also be difficult for our opponents to play against us,'' he said.

Marcelino's men come into the game on a run of three straight wins and haven't been beaten away from home in eight matches across all competitions.
