Los Blancos will visit Estadio Mestalla later in the evening to take on Valencia as fight for La Liga top spot intensifies
Real Madrid will face another test today as they set to take on Pepe Bordalas’ men after a hard fought victory against Inter Milan during the mid-week.
Los Blancos hold a major advantage against Valencia who have conceded at least one goal in each of their last 18 games against the Spanish Giants going higher than the last high which was 19 back in 1995.
But this doesn’t change the fact that Real Madrid have only managed 1 victory out of their last 7 visits to Mestalla Stadium, drawing 2 and losing the remaining 4.
Real Madrid are although still in a fine form going 22 consecutive games without suffering any defeat ( W16 D6) marking the best unbeaten streak in the league since Zinedine Zidane’s 28.
Eden Hazard looks to start from the wing for Carlos Ancelotti who has managed to accept the Belgian Talisman into his project despite his injury worrying past.
A win today is crucial to both sides who will go 2 points ahead of first placed Atletico Madrid who suffered a disappointing draw against Athletic Club yesterday.
