La Liga title chase Barcelona won their gameweek 29 clash (2-0 vs Leganes) to put Real Madrid five points behind then in the La Liga table. The Whites literally have no right to drop points vs Valencia if they want the title race to stay alive.that is number 1 reason real Madrid won the match.
Improving head-to-head record RealMadrid won only two out of their last five La Liga encounters with the Bats - D, W, W, L, D. What's more, the last time the Whites beat Valencia in the league was in 2018.
Eden Hazard's form Even though the Belgian's debut season was a rather disappointing one, he returned to action with a promising performance in the 3-1 victory over Eibar over the weekend. Hazard could be the key to Madrid's first La Liga win against the Bats in two years and he also.perform against Valencia.
Valencia's poor return break While Zinedine Zidane's men left no chance for the Gunsmiths on Sunday, Albert Celades' side failed to beat 12-placed Levante two days earlier.
Gabriel Paulista's absenceThe Brazilian has been Valencia's key centre-back this season, featuring 33 matches across all competitions so far. Paulistahasn't made the squad for the Madrid clashdue to an injury and the Whites certainly benefit from his absence.
Asensio Come Back from Injury the return of Asensio is a big boost after missing out 9months due to.injury,and he was substitute in and score with the first tourch and also assist.
Modric form Luka Modrić against Valencia:94 Minutes,3 Key Passes,93 Touches,90.1% Pass Accuracy,10/11 Long Balls,6 Interceptions 1Shot,2 Duels Won My ballon dor winner can perform even at the age of 35 (almost) against top teams like Valencia, he doesn't need to go to Qatar or Japanese league to earn his pension like other midfielders.
Toni Kroos Form Toni Kroos stats vs Valencia 90' Minutes played,128 Touches110 Accurate passes,95.2% Passing accuracy,2 Key passes,10 Long balls (10 accurate) 3 Shots on target What a player he is, the guy is never at fault, and does everything so elegantly, the most consistent player for us this season and the best at what he does on the football field.
