The second week of Spanish La Liga division will close with one of the Spanish derbies. Real Madrid is hosting Valencia at Santiago Bernabeu. Regardless of the current disbalance of power between teams, when these two sides meet an exciting event is always guaranteed.
On many occasions, we have seen an incredible number of goals or some unpredictable results, which is why this encounter will be a challenge for every punter.
Real Madrid overview
The Madridians, have opened this season fantastically, grabbing two trophies already. The especially important was Spanish Super Cup where they defeated Barcelona in both games. But now they will have to face Valencia without Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos who are both suspended after recent incidents they committed.
Nevertheless, when Real plays at home, a victory is a must. In 69 games in a row, they have scored at least one goal. Currently, they have 5 straight victories, in which they have scored the opening goal of the match. 7 of the latest 9 events they played saw both teams to score which means that Real Madrid is not afraid to concede one goal. That is because they are confident that they will score more than their opponents. As we said, Sergio Ramos and Ronaldo are out because of suspensions and Mateo Kovacic is injured for this event.
Els Taronges’ goal for this season is to become stable regarding at the results and if they can to reach the European competitions. They were struggling during the past few seasons, despite the fact that they have solid players and that they have spent a lot of money on transfers. Valencia opened the season with a win against Las Palmas at home 1-0. Previously the Catalonians displayed solid performances during the pre-season, and we found one characteristic thing in their style of play. The guests are relying on defense, and they haven’t conceded a goal in 5 of the 8 last matches. Surely, against Real Madrid, they cannot expect for such an approach to work, but we are sure that coach Marcelino is going to make some modifications and adjustments. Martin Montoya and Portuguese super star Nani will be unavailable for this match because they are injured.
