Real Madrid face Valencia after the Copa del Rey debacle and while this match won’t give the team hopes of winning La Liga title, Los Blancos definitely need to bounce back and show some courage and positives to their fans.
Coach Zinedine Zidane will be without Sergio Ramos and Isco, who were injured during the match against Leganes. However, the BBC of Ronaldo, Bale and Benzema is expected to be back in the starting lineup and fans and journalists alike will surely be watching to see if their presence gives Madrid a boost just two weeks ahead of their crucial match against Paris Saint Germain.
Valencia will miss Vezo, Murillo and Gabriel in the center of their defensive line so recently acquired Francis Coquelin will be the one starting alongside Ezequiel Garay. Real Madrid will need to pay close attention to the promising Gonzalo Guedes, who has been Valencia’s most valuable player this season.
Real Madrid predicted XI: Navas, Carvajal, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Bale, Ronaldo, Benzema.
Valencia predicted XI: Neto, Montoya, Coquelin, Garay, Gaya, Kondogbia, Parejo, Guedes, Soler, Rodrigo, Zaza.
