Real Madrid host Valencia for what will be their second game after the three-month quarantine due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Los Blancos earned a solid win against Eibar last Sunday and are still two points behind Barcelona in the table. With Messi and Co. having an arguably tougher schedule than Madrid, Zidane’s men must find a way to keep taking care of business every single game.
Valencia have struggled this season but are still a quality team. In fact, Real Madrid could only rescue a draw through a last-minute goal by Benzema on their visit to Mestalla last December. Diakhaby has been a liability on defense all season long and last weekend he cost Valencia a point. Unluckily enough for them, it looks like Celades will have to keep trusting him because of the many injuries Valencia have on the defensive line.
Madrid have the tools and the players to win and score the three points tonight, but it will require a big effort.
