Real Madrid will host Valencia

We are taking our attention to the big derby of the 29th round in La Liga because on Thursday Real Madrid will host Valencia at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano in the capital. Our football expert betting tips about this fixture are about to follow.

Real Madrid didn’t have any other choice, but to beat Eibar in their first game since the COVID-19 pandemic. Zinedine Zidane’s team hosted their opponents in Madrid and showed enough quality to record a 3-1 win. Toni Kroos, Sergio Ramos and Marcelo scored for Madrid. The good news is that Eden Hazard returned on the pitch with an assist. We expect to see the Belgian star being absolutely crucial for Real Madrid in the remaining rounds of the season.

At this moment Real Madrid remains on just two points behind the leader Barcelona. With such a small gap, every mistake could be critical right now. We believe that everyone in Madrid understands this at the moment.

Nacho, Vasquez, Jovic and Diaz remain sidelined for Real Madrid. It’d be curious to see if Marco Asensio is going to record his first minutes for the season after recovering from a serious injury.

Valencia had a really bad luck in the previous round. Los Che hosted Levante in their local derby and they were seconds away from winning it. Rodrigo opened the score for Valencia with a late goal in the 89th minute, but the visitors equalised in the 98th minutes.

The manager Albert Celades now must preprare his players for the next game and make them forget what happened few days ago at the Mestalla. It was a dissapointing for Valencia to miss the win in such a way, but they have an even bigger challenge ahead of them right now.

That’s our football expert betting tips for the La Liga derby between Real Madrid and Valencia on Thursday night. Another win for Madrid or maybe Valencia will make a stand?
