Real Madrid Vs Valencia Live Online Commentary
This has the potential to be a cracking game. Real Madrid are likely to rotate from midweek and bring back many of their heavyweights but they have limited options at the back so Valencia should cause problems. Zinedine Zidane’s men made the perfect response to their clasico loss in midweek by demolishing Deportivo 6-2 in La Coruna. Although Real are in 2nd spot, their title hopes are very much in their own hands and if they win all their remaining matches they will win La Liga no matter what Barcelona do. Real have had problems against Valencia in recent times but they should win this. With a 71% home win ratio and an average of 2.35 points per game at the Bernabeu, they ought to have no problem seeing off mid-table opposition and a side that is regularly pretty poor at the back. As for the hosts squad update: team captain Sergio Ramos is back from a ban which should see Nacho drop out after a long run of games. Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo should be among those to return having been rested in midweek. However, Gareth Bale is sidelined.
On the other hand, Valencia have lost 59% of their matches on the road this season. Los Che have the 5th worst defensive record in the Spanish Top Flight Division with 1.74 goals per game conceded and that goes up to 1.82 away from home. Against a side of Real Madrid’s caliber it’s hard to see them not being overrun and outclassed over the 90 minutes but there should be a goal or two in this for them too. Both teams have scored in a huge 71% of their away games and there have also been goals at both ends in 71% of Real Madrid’s home games this term in La Liga. As regards Valencia team news: Dani Parejo and Eliaquim Mangala should return for the guests with Mangala likely to replace Aderlan Santos in central defence. Forward Simone Zaza and full-back Joao Cancelo are suspended.
