Valencia is looking for a crucial victory against a Madrid without objectives, but hurt. Benzema is still chasing the top scorer. Baraja mends the rear.

The team needs a big win

If the League had started when Rubén Baraja arrived at Valencia, the team would now be ninth, the position in which it finished off Bordalás last season , with 17 points in thirteen games and only four from European positions. But the coach inherited a critical situation from which he has not yet emerged despite the fact that last day there was a very favorable astral conjunction: his own victory in Vigo and defeats by all his teammates (Cádiz, Getafe, Valladolid, Espanyol and Almeria). In this he has fared worse due to the victories in Almería and Cádiz. Today he visits him from Madrid, with his post-traumatic depression and with nothing to gain, but with the moral obligation to not give up until the blush in the League.


Another youngster may play against Los Merengues

Javi Guerra, 20 years old, trained at the Villarreal academy for ten years and signed by Valencia in his second season as a cadet, has played six consecutive games, two as a starter, and a crucial goal against Valladolid . Followed by Madrid and Barça, the club renewed him until 2027 and imposed a 100 million clause on him. Today he will start as a midfielder along with Nico Gonzalez, one of the team’s five loanees, a usual resource in a club that is very reluctant to invest. Diego Lopez, 20 years old, Asturian, trained in Mareo, with fleeting steps through the Madrid and Barça youth academies and a two-year stay at the Mestalla, has had minutes in the last five games. He gave Kluivert an assist in Vigo.
