Valencia v Real Madrid Preview, Primera La Liga, Sunday 22nd December 2013

Valencia took a huge blow after their 3 – 0 defeat to Atletico Madrid with 47 year old manager Djukic stepping down after a disappointing season so far with the club sitting mid table and has admitted that he has failed to move the club to better places and takes full blame of the clubs poor position and performance so far.

Main talk again at Real Madrid comes about the player Gareth Bale once more as manager Perez angrily denied that the Spanish bank Bankia funded the transfer of the Welsh record signing. Thursday this week Perez continuously denied reports claiming that the club were strapped for cash and the club actually struggled to raise the needed funds to bring Bale to Real Madrid. The article can be viewed in the Desayunos Deportivoc de Europa Press.

Valencia v Real Madrid Recent Form (Left to Right)

Valencia: W L D D W

Real Madrid: W D W D W

So far this season we have seen Real Madrid playing as expected and with Gareth Bale now motoring and scoring goals I can only see them start to pile on the pressure on Barcelona and Atletico Madrid. Valencia however are not playing to their full potential and currently sit mid table which is unexpected of them with usually being a top 4 side in the Spanish Leagues.

Valencia v Real Madrid Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Coming into this game on Sunday we see Real Madrid having to look for a win as they continue to play catch up to Atletico Madrid and Barcelona who are both 5 points clear at the top. So at first I will say that I can see Real Madrid walking away with this game and we could see a nice amount of goals scored if Gareth Bale does manage to return from injury in time after he missed the Copa del Rey game against Olimpic Xatvia.

My first prediction is for a Real Madrid win with both teams to score which is actually giving good odds right now, especially as we all know Real Madrid do not concern themselves too much with their defensive duties. The other see’s a high scoring game with a Total Goals prediction of Over 3.5 goals on the day.
