Valencia vs Real Madrid Prediction
Valencia kept their unbeaten streak intact last week by taking down Eibar at home with a narrow 1-0 scorecard. The squad have now stumbled just once in their previous ten clashes across various competitions, and are currently sitting sixth, back in the La Liga as well.
It is also worth mentioning that Albert Celades’s men have been so good this season, that they even topped their Champions’ League group, despite featuring alongside the likes of Ajax and Chelsea.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid are on a positive run of form of their own. Los Blancos have not been at the losing end since their shock 1-0 defeat at the hands of Mallorca, three months ago. Furthermore, Zinedine Zidane’s side have been a force to reckon with on the road as of late.
Impressively, they have come away with the win in five of their past seven outings. In sharp contrast, Valencia have not been a confident bunch away from home.
All of the defeats that they have admitted this term have come from their outings. With the clash this week taking place at a neutral venue, it goes without saying that Valencia are underdogs to taste success in this one.
Furthermore, both teams have had their names on the scoresheets in thirteen of their past fourteen h2h encounters overall. In addition, Real Madrid have won with a clean sheet intact just twice in their past six outings in all competitions.
Given that Valencia are also unbeaten in their last two meetings with this foe, count on Albert Celades’s side to find the back of the net along with Los Blancos this week.
