This fixture has been extremely competitive over the last few years, but with neither side in their best form we are opposing goals at the Bernabeu

Real Madrid's last game in La Liga was one of their most disappointing showings in recent years as they went down 3-0 at lowly Eibar.

Santiago Solari's side recovered from that blow to produce a 2-0 win in the Champions League at Roma on Tuesday night and they will be desperate for another big performance this weekend.

Visiting the Spanish capital on Saturday night are a Valencia side who themselves were knocked out of the Champions League this week, but who boast an excellent record at the Bernabeu.

Latest odds

Real Madrid have only beaten Valencia twice in their last seven La Liga meetings at the Bernabeu and bet365 offer them at 4/9 (1.44) for the win.

Valencia meanwhile have only won three of their last ten away games in the league and are offered at 11/2 (6.50). Five of the last seven league meetings between these sides have been a draw and a repeat is offered at 15/4 (4.75).

Team news

Real Madrid are without midfielder Casemiro and defender Nacho Fernandez who remain injured. Marcos Llorente started in Casemiro's defensive role on Tuesday and his impressive showing could see him earn a first league start of the season.

Rodrigo Moreno went off at half time during Valencia's midweek defeat at Juventus and is a doubt with a muscle problem. Los Che could be boosted by the return of centre-back Ezequiel Garay, with the former Real Madrid defender having missed the last two matches.

Preview 

Valencia generally raise their game for encounters against Real Madrid, and while this fixture is not exactly a derby, there is little love lost between these two sides.

Los Che have enjoyed plenty of goals in this fixture over the last few years, netting over 1.5 goals in eight of the last ten league meetings.

A repeat is priced at a healthy looking 9/4 (3.25), yet this season Valencia have had serious problems in front of goal. Before last weekend's 3-0 win over Rayo Vallecano, Marcelino Garcia's side were the lowest scoring team in La Liga and their total of 11 goals in 13 matches remains much lower than expected.

Similarly, Real Madrid have failed to score in four of their last eight league games, and while usually this match-up provides plenty of entertainment at both ends, Saturday's meeting could be a lot more low-key. 

Tips and predictions

Opposing both teams to score at 5/4 (2.25) looks appealing with this selection paying out in five of Madrid's last six games. Under 3.5 goals could also be of interest at 18/25 (1.72)
