Real Madrid vs. Valencia will face this Saturday, January 8, for matchday 20 of LaLiga 2021-2022. The confrontation will take place at the Santiago Bernabéu stadium and is scheduled for 3.00 pm (Peruvian time). The whites are indisputable pointers, but they want to erase the defeat of the previous date against Getafe team that fought the casualty.
One of the absences that the meringues felt was that of Vinícius Jr. who was discarded by COVID-19 but now he will return to the team and, surely, he will return in the starting eleven, of which he has already been part in 22 consecutive games this season.
However, to the relief of Carlo Ancelotti, the Brazilian is not the only one available, since, after the ‘break’ in Copa del Rey, they return: Thibaut Courtois in the arch, Ferland mendy in defense, Luka modric in midfield and Karim Benzema at the tip.
In addition, ‘Carletto’ will save Dani carvajal for the duel against FC Barcelona for the semifinal of the Spanish Super Cup so his position will be covered by Lucas Vazquez. Along with the Spanish, other footballers who will not be there are Luka jovic positive for COVID-19; Mariano Diaz muscle tear, and Gareth Bale injured since 2021.
For its part, Valencia comes after an agonizing round pass in Copa del Rey although it will have the loss of Hugo Duro by penalty. In addition, after their duel against Cartagena, two possible starters ended up with muscle discomfort: Mouctar Diakhaby Y Carlos Soler.
