Real Madrid won the last match against Eibar with a scoreline of 3-1 ending the match.
All Real Madrid goals were put inside the net in the first half with an incredible open goal by Tini Kross, followed by Sergio Ramos’s goal with an assist from Hazard then Marcelo shoot from outside the box.
The second was a bit of a struggle with a goal looking almost like an own-goal fro Rodrigo. Zidane completed a five-man substitution and trying out some players in a different position like Mendy who went to replace Carvajal and Militao replacing Ramos which made the second half look damaging to Real Madrid.
Real Madrid retained its second position below Barcelona and are still hoping for the Catalonia giant to drop a match for them to seize an opportunity to top the table.
Valencia on the other hand is currently sitting at the seventh [position in the table but close to Champions League qualification place with only 4 points.
This match will be a tough one as Valencia wants to close in on UCL qualification and Real doesn’t want a reason to give up their chase to win the La Liga by losing to Valencia.
