Real Madrid take on Valencia in La Liga this weekend and Los Blancos will look to end a fantastic week with another win.

Zinedine Zidane’s side advanced on to the Champions League finals after a win over Manchester City yesterday night and they will want to stay in the title race as well with a win here.

Los Blancos are just one point behind the league leaders Barcelona and can still win the title this season with a bit of luck.

Meanwhile, Valencia have had a season to forget and will want to end it on a high by pulling off an upset at the Bernabeu this week. Los Che have improved over the last few weeks and are certainly capable of getting a result against Real Madrid.
