RM vs VAL Dream11 Prediction for Real Madrid vs Valencia La Liga Live Score Fantasy Football Tips & Dream11 Team

Share

RM vs VAL Dream11: The home team come into this on the back of a shock 1-0 defeat against Getafe last weekend. Carlo Ancelotti’s side have been brought into a title race alongside Sevilla ahead of this round of fixtures. Los Blancos remain at the top-of-the-table but did face a trip to Alcoyano in the cup in midweek. Jose Bordalas’ Valencia suffered a 2-1 defeat at home to Espanyol on New Years’ Eve. Bordalas’ sides have often been aggressive and frustrating to play against so whilst Madrid remain the favourites, it is expected to be a low-scoring encounter.
