Vicente and his team-mates currently sit atop Group B and are on the cusp of clinching their spot in the second phase.
A point at Anfield would secure the Spanish outfit's berth in the next round but Vicente is confident his side can pick up all three points.
"We are the favourites to gain the win at Anfield on Wednesday," affirmed Vicente.
"All the possibilities for Valencia are open and, for me, we are the great favourites because we are the leaders of the group and are in great form.
"We are going for a triumph from the first moment."
But despite throwing down the gauntlet to Liverpool, Vicente respects Gerard Houllier's side and admits Valencia will have to be wary of the threat posed by the Premiership table-toppers.
He added: "They are first in the English league and that is the reason why I trust we will see a great team.
"They have excellent players in all their positions.
"(Michael) Owen is the one who you hear most about but there are other outstanding players who we cannot leave alone for a moment."
