Partidazo which we will see in Mestalla on this 17th day of the Santander League between Valencia and Real Madrid. We need both teams to score and 3 or more goals in the match.
Valencia comes after a great comeback in the Valencian derby against Levante from 2-0 to 2-4, which has placed it in the 8th position in the fight for a place in Europe with 26 points. Real Madrid continues in that beautiful fight with Barcelona in the lead with 34 points each on the eve of the postponed classic that will be played during the week.
Nice match between two great and historic teams in our league. Valencia comes with a balance of 26 goals in favor (4th of the league that scores most with Real Sociedad) and 23 goals against. Of the 16 days he has played, he has only been left without scoring in 1 of them and has received in 13. This leaves us with the fact that both mark has occurred in 12 of his 16 league games (75%). It comes in good dynamics, both of which mark in the last 8 league games he has played, so I hope he continues this good streak. In theory, the most difficult part is the goal of the ches but at home he still has not stayed at 0 in any of his matches.
As a visitor comes a Real Madrid that has been improving a lot during the season. Balance of 32 goals in favor and 11 against fixing the big defensive problems with which they started the season, which has allowed them to get good results. Of the 15 games he has played he has received in 7 of them and has scored in 12, giving us both mark in 7 of 15 matches. The main difficulty comes from receiving a goal seeing the good form of his defense but something will be reduced to the game. First by the loss on the left side of Mendy by penalty and Marcelo by injury, which will force Zidane to improvise something. The most viable options are Ramos from lateral and Militao from central or Odriozola to changed band, but it is always less reliable than a pure left laterla. Another dilemma of Zidane is that of Casemiro. Primordial player in the team but he finds 4 cards and if he sees yellow in that game he would miss the classic. The change could be Modric and Valverde would occupy his position, losing a great defensive facet but we see that he does French.
Another positive aspect is the h2h between them. I find pretty even and beautiful in terms of goals if we see the recent history between the two. In 11 of the last 12 matches, the necessary goals for the pick have been given, so nothing bad.
Therefore, I welcome the one we will see in Mestalla between these two historic teams in the league in which I hope they both give a good level, especially offensive, and between them they overcome the goals necessary to hit the pick.
