The stats behind our Valencia vs Real Madrid predictions:

  • Real Madrid have kept four clean sheets in their last six matches across all competitions.
  • Los Blancos have also won five of their last six La Liga matches against Valencia.
  • Vinicius Jr has scored six career goals against Valencia to date, no team has conceded more to the Brazilian.

Real Madrid creeping closer to the title

Since December 21st, Real Madrid have played nine La Liga matches, winning seven of them by just a single goal and drawing another, regularly finding themselves pushed all the way by all manner of teams. Of course, during that run, they’ve also crushed surprise title rivals Girona 4-0, while those other seven victories all still count for three points each, regardless of how easy or difficult they’ve been to pick up.

And while Real Madrid have been just about getting the job done, those around them have faltered to the point where Los Blancos now sit six points clear of Girona, eight points ahead of Barcelona and a massive 13 points clear of Atletico Madrid.

With just 12 games to go, it’s going to take an unmitigated disaster for Real Madrid not to return the title to the Santiago Bernabeu at this point, but their professional approach must continue in this tricky away trip to Valencia.
