Real Madrid prepare to take on Valencia in a slight “revenge” match after the last game between them saw three (out of four) penalties scored by Valencia in a strange 4-1 win. This time around, Los Blancos seem a little more prepared, which is ironic given that many of their players are still recovering from injuries. Even if any of them make the squad list on matchday, it may be too soon for them to get a starting position on the night. Due to the number of injuries to the team and even with Marcelo being added to that list, all signs point to the second consecutive match where Zidane will field three defenders. However, he may be forced to take a little bit of a risk. With two players returning, the manager may use that to give them both time on the pitch.
Real Madrid host Valencia on Sunday as Zinedine Zidane’s side look to make up ground on Atletico Madrid at the top of La Liga. Real Madrid are currently five points behind Atletico Madrid in second, but Los Blancos have played two more games than their city rivals. If Real Madrid want to have any chance of winning La Liga this season, they cannot afford to lose any more games in the league. Valencia, on the other hand, have had a torrid season, and are currently 12th in the league. Javi Gracia’s side have only won once in their last five games, and have had difficulties finding the back of the net.
On Tuesday night, los Blancos beat city rivals Getafe 2-0 at Estadio Alfredo Di Stéfano; Karim Benzema and Ferland Mendy with the goals.
The big news before the game was that Marvin Park was making his full-debut; the 20 year old qualifies to play for Spain, Korea Republic and Nigeria internationally.
Zinedine Zidane’s side have now won nine of their last 12 league games, only losing to Alavés in this period.
The champions are now five points behind leaders Atlético Madrid but Real have played two games more.
Will they make it three wins in eight days?
Valencia meanwhile are languishing down in 12th.
Barcelona in third are three points behind Madrid with a game in hand, meanwhile, and Zidane’s team are also only four points clear of fourth-placed Sevilla ahead of this weekend’s fixtures.
Madrid will enter Sunday’s contest off the back of a 2-0 win over Getafe on Tuesday night, with Karim Benzema and Ferland Mendy scoring the goals for the home team, who were without a number of first-team regulars through injury and suspension.
Los Blancos will now be aiming to pick up two more victories in the league against Valencia and Real Valladolid before facing Atalanta BC in the first leg of their last-16 Champions League clash on February 24.
