Valencia vs Real Madrid: Preview and Predictions

Valencia host Real Madrid in La Liga on Thursday, with both teams looking to continue their good form.

Valencia are unbeaten in their last eight home league matches (5 wins, 3 draws), and they will be confident of getting a result against Real Madrid. They have a good recent record against the leaders, winning 1-0 here last season.

Real Madrid are six points clear at the top of the table, and they will be looking to extend their lead with a win. They have a good away record this season, winning 6 of their last 9 away matches.

The match is likely to be a close and exciting affair. Valencia will be looking to take advantage of Real Madrid’s recent defensive problems, while Real Madrid will be looking to their attacking players to make the difference.

Prediction:

I predict a 1-1 draw.
