Real Madrid have just secured a ticket to the knockout stages of the European Champions League this season, after packing a landslide victory over AS Roma, but the euphoria must be forgotten by the defending champion of European Champions League, considering they still have a lot of homework on the Spanish La Liga stage. Especially entering the 14th Jornada this weekend, Los Blancos will face one of the middle board teams that should be wary of, Valencia. This big match will take place on the upcoming Sunday night, December 2, 2018 at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, Madrid.
Real Madrid actually just returned to a positive trend after going through a series of matches with disappointing results under the direction of Julen Lopetegui. Since handled by the new coach, Santiago Solari, Benzema CS’ performance has improved, but unfortunately, during their efforts to get close to the top of the standings, Los Blancos actually swallowed a landslide defeat 0-3 of Eibar. The defeat made Real Madrid further away from the top of La Liga. Now they are ranked 6th with a distance of 6 points from Sevilla, who occupied the top of the standings.
Therefore, Real Madrid must win in this match against Valencia later, talking on paper between the two teams, Los Blancos is indeed superior to Los Che. Madrid successfully packed 4 wins in their last five matches in all competitions, while Sevilla only won 3 wins and swallowed 2 defeats.
