Valencia finished thirteenth in the La Liga standings last season, although Los Che are going to be much improved this time around based on early evidence. José Bordalás has rebuilt the squad and they look very focused after securing early victories against Getafe, Alaves and Osasuna. The latter was a 4-1 scoreline which saw Valencia come storming back from behind.

We’re expecting the home side to definitely score in this clash against a Real Madrid side who will be brushing themselves down after a midweek Champions League encounter, with Zinedine Zidane’s side having been full of goals domestically. Karim Benzema has been in excellent scoring fun and this could continue at the Mestalla Stadium.

Benzema and Vinicius Junior could be in a goals race, with this likely to be a high-scoring encounter and we’re really looking forward to an entertaining clash. Real are averaging thirteen goals in four games played, with Los Merengues currently the favourites to be champions of Spain, although they are defensively at sea based on some early results.

There was a 3-3 draw with Levante along with a 5-2 win over Celta Vigo, so any victory here is going to be in the high-scoring category. We can either choose to back BTTS Yes or even Over 2.5 Goals with a degree of confidence.
