Real Madrid vs Valencia: they want to advance in the Super Cup

The action in Spanish football continues and the Super Cup continues to show plenty of arguments day after day to be one of the most attractive in European football. Indeed, the fight to reach the final remains red hot with the two most powerful teams inch by inch for the title and the semifinals will have two powers such as Real Madrid and Valencia face to face in one of the most attractive matches to be held next Wednesday at the Santiago Bernabéu.

On the one hand, Carlo Ancelotti's Merengue urgently needs to recover from what was an unexpected setback for analysts and sports predictions on his visit to Villarreal. This defeat caused a stir in the vicinity of Madrid and now, Casablanca will seek to qualify for the final where they will be able to meet neither more nor less than Barcelona.

For its part, the Che team will have an unbeatable opportunity to dream of European cups and the turning point could be the victory as a visitor against Real Madrid, despite not being the clear favorite of sports forecasts .

Last matches of Real Madrid

The individual hierarchy does not always achieve good results. And a clear example of this was what happened last weekend at the Estadio de la Cerámica where Real Madrid played a weak game with childish errors in the defensive zone and little effectiveness in attack.

Carlo Ancelotti is not at all satisfied with what the team has shown in the last stretch of La Liga, although previously the hierarchy of his players managed to get good results, despite the fact that the collective performance was not ideal.

Now, Real Madrid lost the top of the tournament and the objective will be to recover it immediately, although it will no longer depend on itself. Merengue remains as Barcelona's escort with 38 points in 16 games played with 12 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses, scoring 36 goals in favor and receiving 16 goals, being the highest scoring team and one of the fewest scored.

Real Madrid's last clashes in La Liga were as follows: they drew 1-1 at home against all sports betting , lost 3-2 as a visitor to Rayo Vallecano in what was an unforgettable week, defeated 2-1 to Cádiz at home, beat Valladolid 0-2 as a visitor and fell 2-1 as a visitor to Villarreal, on the last day.

Last matches of Valencia

Gennaro Gattuso came to the Che team with clear objectives: to place the team in the Europa League zone and return it to a relevant European competition. However, the bad performances of the team are far from what the Italian coach intended, who does not find the best potential of his coaches.

Valencia moves away from the European qualifying positions and day after day loses ground in the fight that it has at the hands of Athletic Bilbao, Villarreal and Atlético Madrid, direct rivals that still remain in the upper part.

Currently, Valencia is located 9 points away from qualifying for the Champions League zone and 8 points away from the Europa League, zones occupied by Betis and Villarreal, respectively. If they continue to accumulate defeats, the Che team will begin to say goodbye to the objectives despite subtracting half of the season.

So far, Valencia occupies 11th place in the standings as a result of 19 points in 16 game days with 5 wins, 4 draws and 7 losses, scoring 23 goals for and conceding 18 goals, which shows serious defensive problems.

For its part, Valencia's last duels in the tournament were as follows: they fell 0-1 against Barcelona at home in a logical result for sports betting , drew 1-1 against Real Sociedad, thrashed Betis 3-0, they fell 2-1 on their visit to Villarreal and lost 0-1 at home against Cádiz on the last day, which generated murmurs from the local fans.
