This season has been pretty bad for Real Madrid, but they still have a chance to salvage it. Right now, they are at the 3rd place in La Liga, but if they manage to finish as the runner-up, it’s not gonna be that bad. Only 9 rounds are left, meaning that Real need to stay focused and win as many games as possible, including the Wednesday’s game against Valencia played at Estadio de Mestalla. If you wanna put some money on this game, make sure first to read our Valencia vs Real Madrid prediction and betting tips!
Valencia have been in a really good form lately, which has brought them to a very good spot on La Liga table. They’re now at the 6th place, the one that leads to the Europa League. Unfortunately for them, there are many other teams that want that position for themselves, so staying so high on the table is going to be a real challenge for Valencia.
And the biggest problem is that Valencia are fighting on two fronts at the same time – La Liga and the Europa League. On the bright side, they don’t have a too difficult job in La Liga till the end of the season. Actually, they just have to play against the big two teams from Madrid, the other games are against teams currently lower than them on the table.
What this means is that even if they lost to Los Blancos on Wednesday, it wouldn’t be a big disaster. And that means that they can go out and play their game without any pressure. It is up to the visitors to press as hard as they can. But, can they turn the pressure into a victory? Let’s see in the next part of our Valencia vs Real Madrid prediction!
Los Blancos are traveling to the south of Spain with the intention to win this game. They gotta do it in order to salvage the season, in which they got knocked out by Ajax in the Champions League and in which they stand no chance of winning La Liga. But, they do have a chance to finish in the second place, which is currently occupied by Atletico Madrid.
They surely have a decent squad, but what they were lacking this season is a good manager. That problem is finally solved because Zinedine Zidane is back in charge. And he started his second tenure at Real Madrid with a 2:0 win over Celta, followed by a 3:2 win over Huesca. Not too impressive, you might say, but these games show Los Blancos are getting back in a good shape.
But, have they already got their form to a point in which they can beat Valencia at Mestalla? You will have to check out our Valencia vs Real Madrid betting tips at the bottom to find out!
