The Real Madrid vs Valencia match will be played this Sunday, May 4 (12:00 PM Pacific), at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium.
Real is currently 3rd in La Liga, trailing 6 points to Atletico, with a game in hand, and 3 points to Barcelona, but the Catalans played 2 more matches. With 4 games to go, Real will try to push their Madrid rivals to the wall, and hope to clinch a title if they slip off in some of their matches.
On the other hand, Valencia is currently lying in 9th place, with no chance to qualify for European competitions next season.
Real Madrid received a huge boost, after their fantastic win over Bayern Munich. The Royal club tore the Bavarians apart in the Champions League semifinal, with a 5-0 on aggregate. They will play against Atletico Madrid in the final, so, Madrid football clubs really conquered Europe this season.
Real is on a series of five victories, and they are clear favorites to win against Valencia, who are experiencing a very bad La Liga season, and won only one out of their six last matches.
Additionally, Real is undefeated against Valencia in their last 11 clashes, and they won 8 of those matches. Also, Real won 26 out of 28 last matches in La Liga, so it would be really a miracle for them to slip in this match.
Real doesn’t have a lot of injury concerns, Khedira, Arbeloa and Jese are long term injured players, but it is important that Cristiano Ronaldo is ready for this match. On the other hand, apart from Alves and Ruiz, newly injured players in Valencia are important members of the starting eleven, Oriol Romeu and Mathieu, so they will be really weakened in this clash.
It is expected that Real Madrid will attack from the very beginning of the match, and solve it in the first half. Valencia is having a torrid season, they can’t go up or down; they are waiting for an end to it, longing to put it behind them as soon as possible. Because of that, they will probably travel to Bernabeu with the goal of not experiencing a disaster.
Considering all the facts, we predict that Real will win by 4 goals to 1.
