The duel of the merengues and chés will be broadcast by DSports (610-619) and DGO in Latin America.
The objective of Real Madrid is not to move away from Barcelona, which remains as leader of LaLiga Santander and that took eight points ahead of the merengues.
This is how Real Madrid arrives
To his best game of the season, which did not serve to pass the goalless draw against Real Sociedad, Real Madrid wants to add a good result and goals against a Valencia in descending line, after getting a point from the last twelve at stake, and already without Gennaro Gattuso on the bench.
It is the beginning of a February of madness that provokes a ‘cry for help’ from Carlo Ancelotti. Up to eight games will face his Real Madrid in a month of 28 days, if he manages to pass to the final of the Club World Cup. It begins with the postponement of the seventeenth day of LaLiga Santander for the participation in a Spanish Super Cup that left wounds already healed.
Real Madrid left behind its physical and results slump in a January in which injuries worsened its outlook. The cup comebacks against Villarreal and Atlético de Madrid, the league triumph in San Mamés and the draw exhibiting great football with continuity against Real Sociedad, are signs of the return of the best version of Ancelotti’s team.

This is how Valencia arrives
Valencia faces this match in the midst of a notable crisis of play and results that has led to the departure of Gennaro Gattuso, not being in a position to get the team out of the situation in which it has gotten to a point of relegation, and in the return to its bench of Voro González, their usual resource in difficult situations.
The impact that for better or for worse has that relief in a template that was very close to its coach but to which anxiety had attacked in recent weeks will be the first key to the clash.
The team has only added one point of the twelve to which it has had access after resuming the League after the World Cup in Qatar, which has made it go from thinking about Europe to having to flee the lower zone of the classification. In addition, the departure of Gattuso and the lack of signings have made the protests against Peter Lim, the club’s maximum shareholder, regain strength.
