Valencia vs Real Madrid 01/08/2020
The reigning Copa Del Rey champions, Valencia is currently in a good run of form in all competitions, not losing a game since November 22 last year the hands of Real Betis in La Liga. Since then, Los Ches have gone undefeated in seven games heading into the winter break. In the league, Valencia has not lost since the Betis match with three wins and two draws in their last five games. And in their two matchups against Real Madrid in 2019, Valencia managed to win one last April while taking a draw last December. Despite their form, Valencia is without forwards Kangin Lee and Goncalo Guedes due to injuries.
Players to Watch: Daniel Parejo (7 goals, 4 assists), Maxi Gomez (7 G, 2 A), Ferran Torres (4 G, 4 A), Kevin Gameiro (4 G, 2 A), Daniel Wass (2 G, 4 A), Rodrigo (4 G, 8 A).
After a disastrous start to their season, Real Madrid has found their footing as they currently on a 14-game undefeated streak in all competitions.

They have not lost since October 19 when they were toppled by Mallorca, 1-0. Since then, Real Madrid has put on quite a showing with nine wins and five draws in all competitions, which includes a 1-1 draw against Valencia last December. Real Madrid will be in almost full strength in the Spanish Super Cup semi-final with only the out-of-form Eden Hazard missing the match due to an ankle injury.
Players to Watch: Karim Benzema (16 G, 7 A), Toni Kroos (3 G, 4 A), Luka Modric (4 G, 4 A), Dani Carvajal (1 G, 5 A), Rodrygo (6 G, 2 A), Sergio Ramos (5 G).
