Team news and possible lineups for Real Madrid vs Valencia
Both teams have done well recently, so we expect to see an interesting match. Here's a closer look at both teams ahead of their duel:
After an impressive streak of eleven matches without a loss, Real Madrid finally lost in the last round against Getafe. Along with a surprising draw at home against Cadiz a couple of rounds before, it could indicate a fall in form for Real Madrid, who was convincingly leading the league so far. However, Sevilla came within just five points and it seems that the title race is fully on.
Real Madrid will once again be without Carvajal due to a calf problem, while Jovic will likely still be out with a positive COVID-19 test. Diaz and Bale are also questionable with injuries, although they could be back for this match.
Real Madrid predicted lineup:
Courtois – Vazquez, Militao, Alaba, Mendy – Kroos, Casemiro, Modric – Rodrygo, Benzema, Vinicius
The Bats are having one of their best seasons lately, but they are still pretty much inconsistent and the fans are certainly finding it hard to trust this team. Overall, Valencia is currently ninth in the standings, but they are only few points away from spots that lead to European competitions next season, so we will likely see a very exciting second half of the season in La Liga.
We will see a few players miss this game for Valencia, including Lato, Foulquier, and Gabriel Paulista who are all injured. Also, Hugo Duro will have to serve a suspension in this match.
Valencia predicted lineup:
Cillessen – Correia, Diakhaby, Alderete, Gaya – Soler, Guillamon, Wass, Cheryshev – Guedes, Gomez
