Real Madrid

League leaders Real Madrid will want to extend their lead when they host Valencia at the Santiago Bernabéu. The hosts are top of the table with 46 points while the visitors are in 9th position with 28 points. The home side is five points clear of second-placed Sevilla, although they have played the extra match. Madrid started the year badly and had a shock 1-0 loss away to Getafe. This loss was their first in 16 games, but they bounced back immediately with a win against Alcoyano in the Copa del Rey. Vinicius Junior is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, he has excellent ball control, and he can be satisfied with his performance. Casemiro has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. Luka Jovic (Coronavirus), Ferland Mendy (Knock), Vinicius Junior (Coronavirus), and Daniel Carvajal (Muscular problems) are not available for Real Madrid gaffer Carlo Ancelotti ahead of this important game.


Valencia also had a disappointing 2-1 home defeat by Espanyol in their last league match but came back and beat Cartagena in the Copa del Rey. They are in the ninth position, but the table is very congested, so they are only 4 points behind the fourth-placed Athletic. A victory will lead them to move to places in Europe if other results are in line with them. Valencia has won its last two away games and is bidding for three wins in a direct match for the first time since 2017. Midfielder Uros Racic has found the right role in the team, he is moving great, and it is not easy to take the ball away from this guy. Maximiliano Gomez is the best player on the team, he scored ten goals last season, and he is doing great in the penalty area. Of the mostly available group of players, Valencia manager Jose Bordalas has only one concern before the derby. Thierry Correia (Muscle Injury) won’t be playing here.
