Valencia vs Real Madrid Match Preview
Valencia have proven themselves a tough nut for Real Madrid to crack lately and they travel to Jeddah for their Super Cup clash hoping to build on such performances, including a thriller 1-1 draw at Mestalla in December – where the visitors only saved a point through Karim Benzema’s last-gasp equalizer.
Los Che beat Eibar (1-0) with a single goal from Maxi Gomez over the weekend and while they extended the unbeaten streak of seven, the fact this was the fourth consecutive game where Celades’ men scored just one goal will be worrying. They beat Ajax (0-1) and held off Valladolid (1-1) since early December too, which still promises them in a good mood.
Real Madrid have been more confident on Saturday and outclassed Getafe (0-3) at Coliseum Alfonso Perez, finally ending a streak of three draws – where they also shared the spoils with Barcelona (0-0) and Bilbao (0-0). Zinedine Zidane will now be desperate to build on such a goalscoring performance, despite an unlikely hero in Raphael Varane stepping up.
Los Blancos haven’t seen a loss since October and we feel they still enjoy great team spirits, having caught up with La Liga pace-setters Barcelona and still going strong across competitions. They will now want their first silverware in 2020 and we do see them making it to the final in Saudi Arabia.
We will thus back Real Madrid to win and do so at 4/5 with bet365, which seems like great value despite their struggles for consistency of turning clashes their way. They will be in a great mood and we Zidane’s men have what it takes.
Valencia have proven themselves a tough nut but they’ve been mainly doing so in front of the home fans, which could be worrying. They bagged just three wins in last eight games on the road despite scoring goals on the regular, which now has us going for another exciting game with a Yes on Both teams to score at 8/15 with William Hill.
