class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>The goals have been flowing in matches involving the Spanish champions in recent weeks and we are backing that trend to continue this weekend
Real Madrid travel to Mestalla on Sunday evening to face Valencia with Zinedine Zidane’s men looking to continue their strong start to the La Liga season.
The defending champions have won seven and drawn two of their last nine league clashes on the road and face a Valencia side who have won just two of their eight league matches this term.
Valencia vs Real Madrid Latest Odds
It looks like this could be a difficult season for Valencia and this week saw midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia leave for Atletico Madrid.
The Frenchman joined fellow first-choice players Rodrigo Moreno, Dani Parejo, Francis Coquelin, Ferran Torres and Ezequiel Garay in departing Mestalla, with manager Javi Gracia infuriated by the club’s decision not to sign a single replacement.
The departure of so many important players, the lack of form and the general negative atmosphere all contribute to Valencia being priced as high as 11/2 (6.50) with bet365.
Los Blancos, for their part, can be backed at 9/20 (1.45) and the draw at 7/2 (4.50).
Valencia vs Real Madrid Team News
The hosts have full-back Thierry Correia suspended following his sending off last weekend against Getafe while centre-back Mouctar Diakhaby is out injured.
For Real Madrid, Lucas Vazquez is likely to continue at right-back with Dani Carvajal, Nacho Fernandez and Alvaro Odriozola all still side-lined. Martin Odegaard is closing in on a return from injury and could be ready for Sunday.
Valencia vs Real Madrid Preview
Los Che have kept just a solitary clean sheet in their eight league games this term and their poor defensive from last season has continued.
In each of their last four matches, Valencia have conceded two goals and only a penalty in 99th minute against Getafe last Sunday prevented them from succumbing to a fourth straight defeat.
Real Madrid have also been conceding goals but Zidane’s side have been dangerous in the final third, netting 18 times in their last five matches, and that firepower has helped them to some positive results in the last three weeks.
Valencia vs Real Madrid Tips And Predictions
Backing over 3.0 goals on the Asian goal line at 99/100 (1.99) looks like an excellent option. This selection provides a half win if there are exactly three goals in the game and a full win if there are more.
Each of Los Blancos’ last five games have seen at least four goals, and another high-scoring game looks set to be on the cards on Sunday night.
