Football Prediction of the Day Real Madrid vs Valencia
Real Madrid is forced to win this match to keep up with Barcelona (the Catalans play with the penultimate ranked in this stage), but I consider that it needs at least 2 goals scored to be sure of victory.
Albert Celades will have all the offensive profile players at his disposal.
Thus, I think that at least 1 goal scored by the “bats” can be considered, counting the fact that Real Madrid showed quite a few weaknesses in the defense in the previous round (it also received a goal from Eibar).
Prediction Today: Total goals over 2.5
