Our football match prediction:
All eyes will be on Estadio Santiago Bernabeu when Real Madrid take on Valencia in the La Liga derby. Los Blancos recorded a routine 3-0 win over Deportivo La Coruna on the opening day of the season, meaning that suspended ace Cristiano Ronaldo was not sorely missed in the Estadio Municipal de Riazor clash. CR7 has yet to serve his ban, but the likes of Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale are likely to pose a big threat for Valencia defenders in Sunday’s football match. Los Che recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over ten-man Las Palmas in their opener, but spoiling Real Madrid’s party at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu is easier said than done. The title holders have been in a splendid form at the start of the season and we predict that they are going to give fans yet another reason for celebration this weekend. In their last meeting in Madrid Zinedine Zidane’s troops defeated Valencia 2-1.
Highlighted Player (Kovacic):
Born to Croatian parents in Linz, Austria, Mateo Kovacic spent seven years in the LASK Linz youth academy before joining Dinamo Zagreb, where he showed a great deal of potential shortly after being promoted to the senior squad. The good return of 7 goals in 43 league appearances saw him secure a high-profile move to Inter Milan, where he acted as both holding midfielder and attacking midfielder, during the three years at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza. And despite not exactly impressing in Italy, Kovacic was purchased by mighty Real Madrid, where he has been ever since. The youngster is widely regarded as one of Croatia’s most talented footballers at the moment and he has represented the country on international stage since the age of 19. In just three years he managed to make over 25 appearances for the national team, playing at the 2014 World Cup and Euro 2016 finals for Vatreni. Kovavic has yet to be given a real chance to impress at Real Madrid, but he has entire future ahead of him.
