Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
All eyes will be on Estadio de Mestalla when Valencia and Real Madrid go head to head in the La Liga derby. Los Che aim to build on a 2-1 win over Celta Vigo and they must be high on spirits ahead of the visit of Real Madrid. Gabriel Paulista serves a one-game ban, while both Thierry Correia and Edinson Cavani are back from suspension. Marcos de Sousa remains on the sidelines with a meniscus problem.
Los Blancos, on the other hand, climbed to second place in the standings thanks to a hard-fought 1-0 win over Getafe. All Karim Benzema, David Alaba, Dani Carvajal, and Rodrygo are back to contention and given Valencia’s shaky defence, we predict that Carlo Ancelotti’s troops are going to emerge triumphant in Sunday’s showdown. The experienced Italian tactician should have a full squad to choose from for the Estadio de Mestalla clash.
Highlighted Player (Edinson Cavani):
Edinson Cavani is a professional footballer who plays for Paris Saint-Germain as a striker. The Uruguayan attacker was born in Salto on 14 February, 1987 and he began his senior career at Danubio. In 2007 he moved to Europe, signing a deal with Serie A outfit Palermo.
After scoring 34 goals in 109 league appearances for the Sicilian outfit, he joined Napoli in 2010. You should have in mind that Cavani scored a brace on his Napoli debut against Elfsborg in the Europa League. The Uruguay forward scored 78 goals in 104 Serie A games for the Partenopei and, as a result, big-spending French club PSG decided to sign him in 2013.
Cavani scored 19 goals for les Parisiens in the 2015/2016 Ligue 1 campaign, but he was in Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s shadow during the season and he started a number of games from the bench. In 2011 the PSG attacker won the Copa America trophy with Uruguay as la Celeste hammered Paraguay 3-0 in the game for the title.
Highlighted Team (Real Madrid):
Real Madrid is 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 13 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).
