Valencia vs. Real Madrid Predictions and Preview
Valencia are unbeaten in 16 games in all competitions and have just one loss in their last 15 La Liga outings – they are now up to sixth in the standings and are just three points from Getafe in fourth.
Real Madrid are out of the title race in La Liga – they languish 12 points behind league leaders Barcelona and are also out of all cup competitions.
Recent league victories over struggling Real Valladolid, Celta Vigo and Huesca do not carry great significance, although the return of boss Zinedine Zidane has revitalised the club and rejuvenated their confidence.
One to watch for Valencia: Central midfielder and captain Dani Parejo has been in fine goalscoring form this season, finding the back of the net on nine separate occasions. He is 15/4 to find the net in this clash.
One to watch for Real Madrid: Gareth Bale has netted in recent victories over Atletico Madrid, Levante and Celta Vigo, while he is priced at 37/20 to continue his good form in front of goal this season in this clash.
Long shot: Real Madrid have failed to score in two of their last five domestic games while Valencia have the second strongest defence in the league, with just 23 goals conceded in 29 games. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are at 14/1.
