Match status: 2019-20 La Liga - Matchweek 29
Venue: Alfredo di Stéfano Stadium (Madrid)
Still hot on the tails of reigning champions Barcelona, Real Madrid will be looking to keep up with the Blaugrana with a positive result in this encounter. Los Blancos have been truly impressive this campaign, sweeping almost every side they have faced aside.

However, complacency seems to be their undoing, losing games they should easily have won. Prior to the COVID-19 break, they were surprisingly defeated by bottom-half outfit Real Betis with Los Verdiblancos posting a majestic 2-1 win on the board.

Despite enduring a difficult start to the campaign, Valencia are still in the running for a place in Europe come the end of the season. With a game against Real Madrid on the horizon, Los Murcelagos will be looking to stage an unlikely upset to have all three points bagged at full-time.

Real Madrid vs Valencia Team News

Just two points adrift of the league summit, Real Madrid will be keen on registering victories over the coming weeks to rise to the top of the standings. For that, they will need to continue churning out positive results whilst hoping arch-rivals Barcelona hit a rough patch very soon.

Following the league restart, Los Blancos were scheduled to take on relegation-threatened Eibar in a cracker of a game in Madrid. Headed into the game as overwhelming favorites, Real Madrid grabbed the game by the scruff of the neck to ensure their opposition were easily dispatched.

It was a routine victory for Zinedine Zidane’s charges with three first-half goals enough to secure the three points. Toni Kroos was the star of the night, firing home a screamer inside four minutes – a worthy goal of the season contender. 3-1 it ended in Madrid as the referee blew the whistle for full-time.

Very much in the running for continental qualification, Valencia were hell-bent on defeating Levante last time out. The opposition got stuck in at the back, thwarting every single Valencia attack as they grew increasingly frustrated with the clock winding down.

Paco Lopez’s tactics seemed to be working to perfection until Rodrigo found a route through Levante’s stubborn defense to break the deadlock in the 89th minute. However, the Frogs responded immediately through Melero, the Spanish midfielder finding the back of the net to clinch a point for his side.

For this fixture, Real Madrid are undoubted favorites for the win. They have managed just two losses from their previous five league games – both defeats coming away from home. Impressively, Real Madrid have not lost a single game on home turf this season. Such has been their dominance on this ground.

Meanwhile, Valencia have a single win from their preceding five fixtures but are unbeaten in their last three games in the league. Their one-all draw against Levante on the last match-day made it two draws on the bounce for Albert Celades’ charges.

Injured or Suspended Players

Real Madrid: Luka Jovic, Lucas Vazquez, Nacho Fernandez, Mariano Diaz and Sergio Ramos.

Valencia: Ezequiel Garay and Eliaquim Mangala.

Real Madrid vs Valencia Predictions

Noteworthily, the visitors have been lackluster at the back, conceding a whopping 40 goals so far, proving their defensive frailties. Also, this number is higher than they have managed to score all season – 39 goals. The likes of Benzema and Hazard will already be licking their lips at the prospect of exploiting this weak defense.

From the look of things, Real Madrid should emerge victors in this fixture, grabbing no less than two goals in the process. However, Valencia should have it within themselves to produce a goal, at the least. As such, “the both teams to score’ is likely to play out here with Madrid winning comprehensively.
