Valencia vs Real Madrid: Winning eight out of last 10 La Liga games, Real Madrid will lock horns against Valencia at Mestalla today. This will be this season’s one of the important games as Real Madrid have an opportunity to top La Liga points table. Zinedine Zidane’s team is hopeful to continue their unbeaten streak and remove Barcelona from the top spot.
After their trip to Mestalla, Real Madrid will play against Barcelona whose winning streak was stopped by Real Sociedad when the game ended in a 2-2 draw at Anoeta. Real Madrid are expected to recall Sergio Ramos, Karim Benzema, Toni Kroos and others. While Casemiro is highly likely to be rested in today’s encounter.
Casemiro will be back in the team in this season’s Clasico. Though Zidane had hinted that the midfielder will play the next game as they want to focus more on Valencia, but reports suggest Real Madrid do not want to take a risk as he could be banned for Clasico if shown one yellow card.
Currently, Valencia are in the fourth position and will be eyeing to improve their standing. If they manage to defeat Los Blancos, they would replace Real Sociedad from the fifth place. Standing with 26 points out of 16 games, they have made a comeback after early loses in La Liga 2019/2010, winning four out of last five games.
