Valencia vs Real Madrid : The goodbye to the title is already confirmed to which they’ve added the elimination from the Copa del Rey, this week, with a home loss against Leganés.
Things couldn’t be going worse for Zinedine Zidane. Thinking about rotating his player after having won by 1 goal away from home, the French manager would be resting his main players for this Saturday’s match.
But the early elimination from the cup comes to torment even more an environment that is becoming more and more dreadful for the manager that has 2 Champions League on his resume.
The crisis of results is, also, the reflex of a crisis of some of their key players that, on the last couple of seasons, have been fundamental. But it seems to be a type of continuous consequence, where the cause is not clear.
Some players look to be, at this stage of the season, more focused on the Champions League and on the 2018 Euros, objectives they might conquer, instead of being more worried about giving their team an image of more consistency on competitions that have less importance or are already gone.
This match on Saturday is even harder, since it will be played at Valencia. Gonçalo Guedes’ team is still very active on the lookout for a great season, being in 3rd place of La Liga.
Where they have a 5-points advantage, although they have one more match played, over Real Madrid, and a path in the Copa del Rey that had another successful page, when they eliminated Alavés this week.
Playing at home, the Valencians should be credited for their efforts, if we consider that, on league matches, only their neighbours Villarreal were able to win at the Mestalla.
Valencia vs Real Madrid – Betting Tip and Prediction:
It will be curious to understand the mind-set that the Real Madrid will be with approaching this match.
But it could very well be in Valencia that things start turning around for Real Madrid, where they get back on track for a 2018 more positive than what it is currently looking like.
