The 2023-24 edition of La Liga is back with another set of matches as Valencia takes on Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid side in an important clash at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday.
Valencia, currently in eighth place in the La Liga standings, edged Granada to a narrow 1-0 victory last week and will aim for a similar result in this fixture. Real Madrid, in second place, were held to a disappointing 0-0 stalemate by Rayo Vallecano in their previous league game and will aim to bounce back.
Real Madrid has a good recent record against Valencia, winning 32 out of the last 57 matches played between the two teams, as opposed to Valencia’s 12 victories. They are also unbeaten in their last 15 home matches against Valencia in La Liga. However, Valencia won the previous game between the two teams in La Liga by a 1-0 margin in May this year.
Real Madrid has an impressive squad at their disposal, with Jude Bellingham performing exceptionally well this season. Valencia, on the other hand, has grown in stature in recent weeks and will be intent on securing a place in Europe this season.
The prediction for the game is Real Madrid 3-1 Valencia, with Real Madrid expected to win, the game expected to have over 2.5 goals, and Real Madrid to score first. Jude Bellingham is also expected to score in the game.
