Real Madrid will be aiming to build on a 2-1 win over Huesca when they take on Valencia. Los Blancos proved their worth at the weekend, but they need to keep on raising their form if they are to overtake Atletico Madrid in top position in the standings. Even though Zinedine Zidane has some injury worries, including Sergio Ramos, Dani Carvajala and Eden Hazard, home win should be considered as Valencia are not seen as the team to beat in the 2020/21 season.The good news for the hosts is that important midfielder Tony Kroos returns to the starting XI after serving his ban in the postponed clash against Getafe.
Los Che, are not regarded as good travellers, and I do not believe that they are capable of claiming a major scalp on Matchday 23.
Levante and Osasuna go head to head at Estadi Ciutat de Valencia in the La Liga round 23. Levante have been in a fine form of late, with the team beating Real Madrid on the road, while sharing the spoils with Granada at home, and, no doubt, they are high on spirits ahead of the visit of Osasuna. A man to watch in the home team will be experienced attacker Morales, who scored a brace at the weekend. It has to be noted that boss Paco Lopez can count on key players for Sunday’s clash.
Los Rojillos did well to beat Eibar at home on Matchday 23, but seeing that they are not regarded as good travellers, I am tempted to put our money on los Levantinos. The likes of Brasanac, Chimy Avila, Jony, and Roncaglia have all been struggling with injuries of late.
All eyes will be on Estadio de la Ceramica when Villarreal and Real Betis. The Yellow Submarine are enjoying a very successful season, but they need to keep on improving their game if they are to represent Spain in the Champions League next season. Villarreal have been sharing the spoils a lot with their rivals of late.Gerard Moreno, who scored a brace in the 2-2 draw with Elche, will be the man to keep an eye on in the home team, while Francis Coquelin, who was forced to leave the pitch after 25 minutes at the weekend, is unlikely to feature against Real Betis.
Los Beticos experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-2 loss to Barca, and given their shaky defence, I believe that there is a big value in betting on the Yellow Submarine.
