Real Madrid vs Valencia – La Liga: TV channel, team news, lineups & prediction

Real Madrid are in La Liga action in midweek against a Valencia they met only recently in the semi-finals of the Supercopa de Espana.

Los Blancos won on penalties following a draw in that game in Saudi Arabia but have been in mixed form in the weeks since. Valencia, meanwhile, have had a disappointing campaign and come into this fixture only one point above the relegation zone.

Real Madrid team news

Ferland Mendy and Lucas Vazquez are ruled out for Los Blancos, with Aurelien Tchoameni, David Alaba and Dani Carvajal all doubts for Carlo Ancelotti’s side.

(4-3-3): Courtois; Nacho, Militao, Rudiger, Camavinga; Modric, Kroos, Ceballos; Valverde, Benzema, Vinicius.

Valencia team news

There is no Nico Gonzalez or Jaume Domenech for Valencia in Madrid. There are also concerns over Jose Gaya and Thierry Correia, although the former could still play.

(4-2-3-1): Mamardashvili; Foulquier, Gabriel, Ozkacar, Gaya; Musah, Moribal; Kluivert, Almeida, Lino; Cavani.

Even though Real were fairly comprehensively beaten by Barcelona in the Supercopa final, had to come back from two goals down against Villarreal in the Copa del Rey and were held to a goal-less draw by Real Sociedad in their last outing, they have to be considered favourites here.

Valencia did give them trouble in Saudi Arabia, yet Real will still take confidence from the way they have beaten Athletic Club and Atletico Madrid in the past 10 days.

Prediction: Real Madrid 2-0 Valencia
