Real Madrid’s home match against Valencia will bring back some bad memories for Los Blancos and their fans. Madrid’s season started going downhill after their shocking 4-1 loss to Valencia in Mestalla last November, so while the chances for Zidane’s team of winning the 2020-2021 Liga title are now very slim, they need to gain confidence and momentum for the upcoming tie against Atalanta.
Real Madrid predicted XI: Courtois, Carvajal, Varane, Nacho, Mendy, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Asensio, Vinicius, Benzema.
Valencia predicted XI: Domenech, Correia, Paulista, Ferro, Gaya, Wass, Racic, Soler, Guedes, Maxi, Vallejo.
Real Madrid have recovered some of their depth now that Carvajal and Lucas Vazquez are with the team. Madrid’s starting XI is strong but Zidane will miss some options of the bench, with Mariano, Vazquez and Isco as his only attacking options to change the course of the games. Castilla player Arribas could get another chance to play some minutes.
