Manager Marcelino insists Valencia will take solace from Liverpool's remarkable Champions League comeback over Barcelona as they look to overturn their Europa League semi-final clash against Arsenal.

The Gunners head to the Mestalla for Thursday night's second leg having secured a 3-1 victory at the Emirates Stadium last week.

As a result, Unai Emery's side are now favourites to advance to the Europa League final in Baku on May 29.

Liverpool beat Barcelona 4-0 at Anfield on Tuesday after losing 3-0 at the Nou Camp but Marcelino believes there is plenty for his side to play for themselves.

"Last night's game demonstrates that anything can happen," he said at his pre-match press conference.

"It is a lesson that tells us that if we play to our maximum we'll have the chance to make it to the final.

"Every game is different and just because Liverpool beat Barcelona it doesn't mean we have to knock out Arsenal, but if we do pull it off it's because we believed we could be in the final."

One vital aspect of Liverpool's historic comeback was the fact Jurgen Klopp's side showed the right mentality from kick-off.

Marcelino, too, said his players will go out on Thursday night believing they can upset the odds.

"We're going into the game with the belief we can beat Arsenal," he added.

"The players have transmitted that to me and I am convinced we have a chance.

"We are facing top-level players who have already shown us that they take advantage of any slip up, so the objective is not to make any more errors that we don't usually make," he added.

"It's beyond doubt that we'll have a better chance if Mestalla supports us from the start. We're going to go through difficult moments and we're going to need them."
