Real Madrid – Valencia : Preview & Prediction
Even if Valencia are struggling this season in La Liga, this match against Real Madrid remains a magnificent poster of the Spanish league. Sunday afternoon, on the lawn of the Alfredo di Stefano stadium, the Merengue host the Ché club with the ambition of maintaining the pace at the top of the standings. Anchored in second position before the start of this 23rd day, Zidane’s men are aiming for nothing other than victory to keep their distance from FC Barcelona (and continue to cheat in a fall of Atlético, leader). After beating Huesca and then Getafe, Karim Benzema and his teammates seem capable of making the pass of three.
Real Madrid have just chained two victories (Huesca and Getafe).
At home, Real Madrid remain on two successes against Valencia.
Karim Benzema returns to form on the Real side: 3 goals in the last 4 games.
Valencia are tough this season, with a sad 12th place.
Valencia have won only one of their last 5 games.
2 defeats and 1 draw: Valencia’s last record on the road is complicated.
Against a struggling Valencia, Real Madrid should be able to erase their defeat in the first leg at Mestalla (4-1). Much better than at the start of the season, Zidane’s protégés have the cards in hand to string together a third consecutive victory. We therefore recommend the success of Real Madrid for this prognosis.
