Valencia vs Real Madrid (La Liga)

Facing Valencia at Mestalla is never an easy task and Real Madrid has struggled at that stadium with only one win in their last three visits to Mestalla. Valencia has their own issues both on and off-field as the team is much weaker as compared to other Valencia sides in recent history, and the club sold a lot of their star players, including Dani Parejo cheaply to direct competitors.

This could possibly be the weakest Valencia side Los Blancos will have faced in the past decade or so. Real’s away record under Zinedine Zidane has been exemplary and will like to continue in the same manner. I expect this to be the easiest fixture on paper for Los Blancos in November and possibly the game where we may see Real Madrid scoring three or more goals.

Prediction: Valencia 0-3 Real Madrid

Villareal vs Real Madrid (La Liga)

Villareal is still adapting to their new coach and his tactics, Unai Emery has done a decent job so far and will be happy with the start as they sit fifth in the table with 12 points to their name from seven games. Takefusa Kubo is starting to get more and more time under Unai Emery as the fixtures are piling up for the Spanish side with games being played every three days.

Kubo on loan from Real Madrid has impressed in his last three outings with the club and is slowly earning the confidence of the Spanish coach. He is still not a guaranteed starter but by the time this fixture is played, he may have a fixed his place in the starting XI.

Villareal has always been a tough fixture and their side looks really strong with the addition of Dani Parejo and Kubo. Real’s last three visits to La Ceramica stadium have ended in a 2-2 draw and it has always been a fixture full of goals.

Gareth Bale’s brace helped Los Merengues salvage a point last season in this fixture as he ended up getting sent off soon after scoring the equalizer. I expect this to be an end to end game and the team that takes their chances well will run away with three points.

This is the first game after the November International Break and Real’s recent track record in these games hasn’t been good lately. I expect another tie full of goals and end to end drama this time and another game where Real Madrid may have to dig deep to get all three points.

Prediction: Villareal 2-2 Real Madrid
