Real Madrid vs. Valencia – predictions, team news, lineups
Real Madrid vs Valencia predictions for Thursday’s La Liga contest at the Alfredo Di Stéfano Stadium. Real Madrid are searching for their third home win on the spin when they host Valencia.
Valencia, meanwhile, are looking for their first win since the restart following a dramatic 1-1 draw with Levante last time out.
Even though they were competing in the unusual surroundings of the Alfredo Di Stéfano Stadium at their training ground, Real Madrid looked comfortably at home in their 3-1 win over Eibar on Sunday.
Real scored their three goals from just six attempts in total against Eibar, while the visitors were able to rack up nine attempts in response – figures that suggest there should be chances on offer to a much stronger Valencia team on Thursday.
Valencia scored in an impressive 25 of their 28 La Lia fixtures so far this season, and failed to register just five times in 40 competitive fixtures overall since August.
- Real Madrid conceded at least once in three of their last five home matches.
- Valencia scored in 25 of their 28 La Liga games this season.
- Both teams scored in 69% of Valencia’s away games this term.
- Both teams found the net in each of the last three meetings between these clubs.
Madrid are priced at 2/5 (1.40) to score over 1.5 goals which looked a nailed-on selection.
For higher odds, backing the 13-time European champions to score in both halves at evens (2.00) could be an intelligent option.
