THE PREDICTION

Valencia’s defensive problems continue to haunt them as a late rash tackle led to a injury-time equalising penalty against Levante last time out, and that does not bode well when coming up against a motivated Real side. They have not kept a clean sheet in any of their last nine games and while they have good firepower themselves, it is hard to see how their fragile defence will hold Madrid’s attack. The hosts have to keep winning to stay on Barcelona’s heels and they should manage that with relative ease here.
