Valencia and Real Madrid will face each other in La Liga this weekend. The match will be held at the Mestalla Stadium and is scheduled to kick off at 8pm UK time on Sunday.

Valencia

Valencia endured a disappointing 2020-21 campaign. The former Spanish champions and UEFA Cup winners finished as low as 13th in the La Liga table last season and will be determined to do much better this time around.

Los Che have started the new season on fire. José Bordalás’s side are as high as second in the La Liga table at the moment with 10 points from four matches, level on points with leaders Real Madrid and defending champions and third-placed Atletico Madrid.

Team News:

Maxi Gomez will start for Valencia.

Real Madrid

Real Madrid missed out on the La Liga title last season on the final day of the campaign to city rivals Atletico Madrid. Zinedine Zidane left his role as the Madrid head coach thereafter, and Carlo Ancelotti was drafted back to take over.

Under the Italian tactician, Los Blancos are doing well. Madrid are at the top of the La Liga table at the moment with 10 points from four matches, level on points with second-placed Valencia and third-placed Atletico Madrid.

Team News:

Ferland Mendy, Daniel Ceballos and Gareth Bale will be on the sidelines for this game.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Real Madrid have scored 13 goals in La Liga this season.
  • Valencia have scored nine goals in La Liga this season.
  • Real Madrid have conceded six goals in La Liga this season.
  • Valencia have conceded two goals in La Liga this season.
  • Real Madrid are playing in the Champions League in midweek.

Conclusion

Valencia are very stingy at the back, and Madrid will have to be creative to make a breakthrough. Given that the match will be played at the Mestalla Stadium, Valencia will have the advantage. A draw is the most likely outcome.
