Real Madrid team news
Just when things looked calm Real Madrid suffered their first La Liga defeat since October which snapped a 11-match unbeaten run (which included nine wins). Carlo Ancelotti’s men nevertheless sit atop of the championship table but their lead has been cut down to five points and they’ve played a game more than nearest challenger Sevilla. Home, though, is where the heart remains for Los Blancos as they are currently on a 26-game unbeaten streak in La Liga at Estadio Santiago Bernabéu (21 wins and five draws). In fact, Real have gone 348 minutes without conceding a goal. Although they’ll be missing Dani Carvajal and Mariano Diaz while Gareth Bale is a doubt, Karim Benzema is expected to return. The lethal French marksman has scored at least one goal in each of his last six league appearances against Valencia (seven goals in total). Another goal here will see him equal his best scoring streak against the same opponent in the competition (seven against Granada between 2013 and 2017).
Real Madrid predicted XI: Courtois; Fernandez, Militao, Alaba, Mendy; Valverde, Casemiro, Kroos; Hazard, Benzema, Vinicius Junior.
Valencia team news
A run of three wins across their past four La Liga outings has left Valencia sitting in ninth. After winning their past two road games Los Che will be seeking a third on the bounce something they’ve not managed since between September and November 2017 when Marcelino was at the helm. From a historical perspective, Valencia have lost more top-flight matches against Real (90) than against any other side. Their manager José Bordalás has failed to win any of his previous nine games against Spain’s most decorated club (two draws and seven defeats). He goes into this game without the suspended Hugo Duro and injured trio Gabriel Paulista, Dimitri Foulquier and Toni Lato but Carlos Soler is available. The 25-year-old midfielder has scored the most penalty goals in La Liga this season. He’s also scored more from the spot against Real (5) than against other sides (3).
Valencia predicted XI: Cillessen; Correia, Guillamon, Alderete, Vazquez; Costa, Soler, Wass, Cheryshev; Gomez, Guedes.
