Valencia CF vs Real Madrid Soccer Betting Tips – La Liga
Too far from the level expected last season, FC Valence finished only in 9th place in the standings and therefore could not qualify for the European Cup this season. In lack of liquidity, the leaders had to part with many executives without recruiting. The result, Kevin Gameiro’s partners are struggling in terms of results and find themselves in 13th place in the standings. Beaten 3 times by Betis (0-2), Villarreal (2-1) and Elche (2-1), they finally stopped this very bad spiral by hanging Getafe (2-2) on Sunday.
Opposite, Real Madrid won a new Spanish league title last season, which does not prevent him from blowing hot and cold at the start of the season. Indeed, in the Champions League for example, the Merengue started badly by losing against Shakhtar (2-3) then being manhandled by Borussia Mönchengladbach (2-2). But they made a good operation by winning against Inter Tuesday night (3-2) and came back to the level of the Milanese in the classification of this group. On the other hand, in La Liga, Zinedine Zidane’s players do the job overall, occupying 2nd place in the standings just behind Real Sociedad, which has one more game. Surprised by Cadiz in mid-October (0-1), they rebounded well by winning against Barça (1-3) than against Huesca (4-1) last Friday.
The workforce for Valencia CF vs Real Madrid
On the Valencia side, only the former Lyon defender Diakhaby should still occupy the ranks of the infirmary with the potential holder midfielder Vicente Esquerdore. On top of that, framework defender Thierry Correia will be suspended after receiving a red card against Getafe. In attack, the best weapon of this team seems to be the Uruguayan Gomez who has scored 3 goals since the resumption of competition. This week, midfielder Kondogbia left the club and joined Atlético Madrid.
Real Madrid will have to tinker again following the absences of right-backs Carvajal and Nacho Fernandez, substitute Odriozala and young playmaker Odegaard. To this, we add the package of the central defender replacing Militao, tested positive for Covid 19. Very busy lately, Benzema should still start. He also scored a new goal on Tuesday against Inter, his 4th in his last 3 games in all competitions.
