As it stands, Valencia is in 17th place with just two points won from their first three matches.
Los Che entered the season felling confident in their new signings and trusting that new manager Mauricio Pellegrino would keep them in third place.
So far, the pieces have not quite fit together and Valencia is struggling for consistency.
Not in Crisis Mode... Yet
Although they have yet to win a match, there are plenty of positives for Los Che to take away from their first three matches.
They started the season by drawing the reigning champs and really outplaying Real Madrid for most of the match. They also matched Barcelona for the majority of their latest encounter.
Not only did they go toe-to-toe with the best La Liga has to offer, they did so away from La Mestalla.
However, against an inferior team in Deportivo, Valencia showed a lack of concentration and implied that the inability to close out matches that hurt them so much last season may not have been remedied yet.
The lack of points is obviously worrying, but we still have to keep things in context. They managed to draw Madrid and almost took points from Barcelona despite not being at full strength in either match.
Adil Rami played his first match of the season at Camp Nou and it was already clear how valuable he is to the club.
The preferred midfield grouping has yet to play together with Sergio Canales and Ever Banega still reeling from injury.
Once the team gets to full health, they should be able to string a few victories together and get back near the top of the tables. But they better do it quickly!
With Atletico Madrid looking incredibly dangerous, Malaga already exceeding expectations, and the rest of the league looking very balanced, Valencia will not get many chances to make up lost ground.
The level of competition after the big two is very high this season and Valencia cannot be seen as favorites at the moment.
There is no need to panic just yet, but Los Che certainly need to start winning soon or else they'll find themselves out of Champions League qualification next summer.
