Real Madrid is back at the Santiago Bernabeu to play host to Valencia in match week 20 of the La Liga 2021-22 season.
After relinquishing their title to Atletico Madrid in the previous season, Real Madrid is back in top form, and sitting comfortably at the number one spot with 45 points from 20 games. It has a lead of 5 points on second-placed Sevilla and will be fancying the chances of becoming the Spanish Champions for a record 35th time. The team has performed well under its new manager, Carlo Ancelotti, and has lost just two games thus far in the league. The most recent came against Getafe, in its first game after the break.
That was a shocking result, to say the least!
After a somewhat decent start to the season, Valencia seemed to have lost its way in the middle of the first half and lacked consistency. However, towards the end, coach Jose Bordalas has steadied his ship, and the team has lost just once during its last 8 fixtures. Valencia is currently in the 9th spot with 28 points. A win in this game will take it to 6th place, overtaking Rayo Vallecano, and in contention for the Europa Conference League.
Match prediction and betting tips for Real Madrid vs Valencia La Liga 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, Madrid, on the 8th of January, 2022.
Stung by the defeat against Getafe, Real Madrid will take on the field with a renewed zest, and look forward to extending its lead further for the number one spot. After facing a lot of COVID cases and injuries, Ancelotti will finally be relieved to have a majority of his players available for selection. Vinicius Junior, who was the latest to test positive, has since returned a negative test result, and will most probably be available for selection on Saturday.
Valencia too does not have any concerns regarding squad health. Thierry Correia is the only player who is likely to miss out on the game due to a muscle injury.
Given the exceptional home form of Real Madrid, we expect to see them continue the winning streak in this game too. While Valencia may sneak in a goal, Real Madrid is likely to better them.
