Real Madrid vs Valencia Match Preview & Team News
After losing against Levante at home two weeks ago, Real Madrid tied two victories. Although they haven’t been too convincing, Los Blancos remained in the title race. Zinedine Zidane’s side is eight points behind Atletico Madrid, who has one game in hand. Real Madrid struggles in the front this season, and they have severe troubles when Karim Benzema is not in the starting eleven. On the other hand, Sergio Ramos and the lads perform a good defensive job. The home side is the third tightest team in La Liga with 19 goals conceded. The hosts spilled too many points at home since their visitors got away with a win three times. Real Madrid needs to be more consistent if they want to keep challenging the top spot.
Valencia cannot be proud of its current campaign as the visitors sit in 12th place. They are only four points ahead of the relegation zone, and the away side needs a good streak. Carlos Javier Garcia’s team booked two wins in the last five rounds, making five in total this season. Valencia needs to improve its finishing, as they scored only 28 goals so far. Uros Racic and the lads were decent on the road so far, but they managed to get back home with a win only once from the last five outings. This is going to be a tough challenge for them, and Valencia needs to put on a disciplined performance.
