Our football match prediction:
Valencia and Real Madrid face each other at Estadio de Mestalla in a postponed fixture. Los Che have been producing fine showings in La Liga ever since new coach Voro took over the reins (December) and they head into Wednesday’s football game following a 2-0 win over Athletic Bilbao. Valencia moved away from the relegation zone and, as things stand now, they are likely to secure the top flight survival. Real Madrid recorded a routine 2-0 win over Espanyol at the weekend, with the team extending their winning in the league to four games. Los Blancos are only one point clear of second-placed Barcelona ahead of the trip to Valencia, but it is well known that the league leaders have two games in hand. A win over Valencia would see Real Madrid move one step closer to regaining the La Liga trophy and we predict that the visitors will leave their hearts on the field in the Estadio de Mestalla showdown. Gareth Bale has overcome his long-term injury and he is likely to pose a big threat for the opposition defenders.
Highlighted Player (Cherychev):
Probably the most famous Russian footballer never to have played for a domestic club, Denis Cheryshev was born in Nizhny Novgorod, but began his career at Sporting Gijon as his father played for the Spanish side at the time. The talented winger eventually caught the eye of Real Madrid and went on to spend eight years in the youth academy at Santiago Bernabeu before he was given a chance to impress on senior level. Due to a fierce competition for places in Madrid, Cheryshev was forced to gain much needed first team experience via loan spells at Sevilla, Villarreal and Valencia, and he showed a great deal of potential during those stints, proving los Blancos were wrong to let him leave. Chersyhev has been in and out of the Russia national team since making his debut in 2012, but there is a good chance he will become an important member of Sbornaya Komanda as soon as he secures regular playing time at club level. The Russian footballer is capable of operating on either wing or through the middle, and he has proved to be quite prolific in terms of both goals and assists.
Highlighted Team (Real Madrid):
Real Madrid are a Spanish football club based in Madrid. Real Madrid participate in La Liga (Primera Division) and they have won 32 domestic titles. On the other hand, los Blancos have won 11 European Cup titles and that is the main reason why they are considered the biggest football club in the world. Real Madrid play their home matches at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu and the capacity of the stadium is 84,454. Cristiano Ronaldo is the club’s most successful footballer in the 21st century and the Portuguese superstar has won two Golden Ball awards. The likes of Alfredo Di Stefano, Zinedine Zidane, Raul Gonzalez Blanco, David Beckham and Iker Casillas are star players who were part of the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu outfit in the past. Real Madrid’s bitterest rivals are Barcelona, but the rivalry between local rivals Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid is big as well. Real Madrid’s home kit is white and, as a result, the team’s nickname is los Blancos (the Whites).
