Stadium: Santiago Bernabeu (Madrid)
With all due respect to Real Madrid and their achievements in the Spanish championship, Ancelotti's team do not play dominant football. Why, then, should it play it against a powerful Valencia side?Get Your Welcome Bonus!
Do you know how Real Madrid have started the year? With the defeat against Getafe! Really, can you think of anything better? Getafe couldn't even draw with anyone at the beginning of the season and beat Madrid. No amount of cup victories over "the Alcoyanos" will make us forget the game with Getafe. No way! Real Madrid embarrassed themselves, and that needs to be clearly understood.
Madrid's leadership in the league deserves respect, but they are not showing any confident football. There are a lot of one-goal wins, with the boys hardly scoring more than two goals. Valencia managed to win 2-1 at the very end of the meeting. Yes, Real Madrid are the leaders of La Liga in spirit, but by no means by the game.
How are Valencia doing? Oh, they're doing very well, only one defeat in their last 11 games. They made it to the last 16 of the Spanish Cup, and now they are close to the European Cup zone. By the way, the victory over Real Madrid might move Valencia to 7th place, and that already means the Conference League. All in all, things are going their way, and we can only have faith in Bordalas' team.
The important point is that the new Valencia head coach Jose Bordalas had a very confident start in the league and even held first place. But after that, due to the tough calendar, the team had a series of failures, and there were even rumors about his possible resignation? What happened next? Valencia pulled themselves together and started to score again. That says only one thing - the guys have character. And they're ready to go after this coach. And with a team like this, you can, if not beat Real Madrid, at least score points against them.Watch Free Live Stream
