Real Madrid – Valencia: Preview & Prediction
They closed the year to win everything, championship and Champions League and entered this season to win everything, European Super Cup to Manchester United and Spanish Supercup to Barcelona with double victory.
In the league went to Galicia to win 3-0 Deportivo Corunna. This team has played with eyes closed and even without Cristiano Ronaldo, have been given the message. Isco, Marcelo, Casemiro and company have been in great shape and it will be complicated to stop this Real Madrid at this stage.
Ronaldo remains out to comply suspension and fails this meeting as Sérgio Ramos.
Valencia They have held very disappointing championships and this Valencia is very far from Valencia of other years.
The team does not have the same quality of other years and looking at this squad, I see this Valencia out of the fight for a European place. I like the central Garay, Dani Parejo midfielder who is the brain of midfield and forward Zaza even started well scoring the winning goal against Las Palmas on Matchday 1,
But it seems short and few options of this Valencia that still has Nani, but injured. Valencia defeated Las Palmas 1-0 in a game where they played with 1 player from the 33rd minute and still did not extend the lead.
It should be noted that João Cancelo left Valencia for Italy and that Gonçalo Guedes is expected to be back in Valencia.
Real Madrid will win this meeting and I believe they will already be at an advantage in the interval.
Valencia will suffer a lot in Madrid and I do not see the team with the capacity and resistance to withstand the pressure and intensity of play played by Real Madrid who is playing a lot.
The absences of Sérgio Ramos and Cristiano Ronaldo should not be noticed, since those who have entered, have responded and given good momentum to the team.
Isco, Benzema, Asensio, Bale and company are going to put in the direction and several times the Valencia defense and at some point the ball will eventually enter.
Real Madrid to win the break is the most likely scenario in this return from La Liga to the Bernabeu.
