Real Madrid vs Valencia
Date: Sunday, 14 February 2021
Kick-off at 15:15 UK/ 16:15 CET
Venue: Alfredo di Stefano Stadium (Madrid).
The 1-2 loss at home against Levante earlier has pulled Real Madrid to the third spot on the table as they leveled in points with Barcelona. They made a comeback in the 1-2 win on the road against Huesca in the next league clash. Zidane will try to build on that win at home and get maximum points out of the remaining fixtures in La Liga.
Valencia is 19 points behind the host on the league table as it stands. The away team has two wins in their recent five clashes in the campaign. They are unbeaten in the last two matches, following a 1-1 draw on the road with Athletic Bilbao last time out. The visitor will come in with a mixed form in the campaign this season until now.
Real Madrid vs Valencia Head-to-head (h2h)
- Only one of their last five matches has ended in a draw.
- Both teams have scored in four of their recent five fixtures.
- Their previous encounter gave a 4-1 home win for Valencia.
- The host has recorded three of the last five overall wins.
- The visitor has won none of their past 14 visits since 2008.
Real Madrid vs Valencia Prediction
Zidane has still found no proper striker to rely on for goals in their fixtures. It was Varane that scored both goals in the last clash, which clutched the victory after a defeat. Benzema has still not scored in consecutive games in their schedule, despite being the most experienced forward in the mix.
Real Madrid enjoys the ground advantage in the middle, and their comeback is most awaited by the fans after losing both Copa del Rey and Super Cup this season. Los Blancos have scored 37 goals in their 21 appearances so far this term while conceding just 19 goals in total. The tip for under 3.5 goals will probably be a suitable option for the goals area in the clash.
Valencia has always been a headache for the host in recent h2h games. However, they are not dangerous away from home. This opens doors for the home team to create more chances. Playing up high has been a risk for the Galacticos, and the guest is a team that has a good counter-attack style in La Liga. Thus, the home win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters.
