Matches between Real Madrid and Valencia CF are always intense. This 'rivalry' doesn't work both ways, as only Valencia fans hate Real with a passion while Los Blancos don't care that much about them. However, this game could be different.
Real Madrid target José Luis Gayà rejected a potential move to the Spanish capital by signing a contract extension with Valencia that will increase his €18 million buyout clause to €50 million. He also had a message for Real Madrid on Valencia's announcement of the deal: "This is my shirt, this is my badge". Gayà and Valencia probably didn't need to act that way, but that proves that Real Madrid isn't just another club for them. For instance, they didn't have a single problem when they sold Jordi Alba to Barcelona and Bernat to Bayern. The problem came when Real Madrid were the ones after Gayà.
One way or another, both teams need the win. Real Madrid will want to keep the race for the Liga title alive while Valencia are looking to secure a spot in next year's Champions League.
