Valencia vs Real Madrid preview
It is always an important fixture for Valencia when they host Real Madrid and Sunday’s clash should be another big occasion.
The two sides are level on points after the opening four matches, with Real Madrid being the division’s top scorers so far, and Valencia just behind them in terms of goals netted.
Bordalas has moulded this Valencia team in the image of the Getafe side he took to the brink of the Champions League, with Los Che transformed into an aggressive, intense unit capable of quick transitions and full of defensive resolve.
Madrid, meanwhile, have been unsteady defensively this season, conceding in three of their four La Liga matches and generally providing entertainment not least because they have been giving their opponents plenty of chances in matches.
Games between these two rivals tend to be open and exciting encounters and Sunday’s clash should continue that trend.
Valencia vs Real Madrid tips & predictions
Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals is priced at 21/20 (2.05) and looks an obvious and appealing selection.
