News | 18/06/2020 | Javier VázquezThe Whites will play their second match since the resumption of the campaign at the Alfredo Di Stéfano (10pm CEST).
The direction to take is clear: produce at least the same level of football that was seen in the first half against Eibar. Aside from Kroos' spectacular goal, who is in his most prolific season, or Ramos' strike, the madridistas are enjoying Hazard's return and the partnership he forms with a Benzema on top form.
But they're not the only ones who stand out. Zidane has a very large squad to make the most of the new rule of up to five substitutions per game. "If we go out and start strongly, and play with intensity we can do well. We have ten games left and we are only thinking about doing our best to win them", the coach said at the pre-match press conference.
Fight for Europe
Valencia travel to Madrid in eighth position, just one point behind the European positions and knowing what their opponents have done. Thier first match after returning to the competition was the derby against Levante, and they saw victory slip away from them thanks to a last-minute penalty. With so much at stake, the game promises to be a spectacle.
