Real Madrid visit Mestalla as Valencia try to secure their presence in the next edition of the Champions League. Valencia started the season very poorly but have improved and gained some serious momentum right after the Christmas break.
This will be a very good test for Real Madrid and the effort of their players. Coach Zinedine Zidane made some rotations against Huesca, so players like Varane, Modric or Kroos will be fresh and ready to play.
“I said after the Huesca game that there’ll be changes tomorrow and we’re going to do just that, change some players. We have to put in a good performance. These type of games are nice to play in, players enjoy them. We’ll try to put in a good performance, it’s a late kick off but we’ll get on with it,” said Zidane during the pre-match press conference.
Mestalla has always been a tough venue for Madrid as Valencia and their fans always take these games very seriously, even more so now that they need the three points to keep fighting for a Champions League spot.
