Valencia CF
Real Madrid CF

Iker Casillas is a major doubt for Real Madrid going into this weekend's trip to Valencia. Real Madrid's player of the season picked up a muscle injury in our 3-1 win over Real Betis Balompié and with the Uefa Champions League resuming next week, he will not be risked in this match if he fails to prove his fitness. Zinedine Zidane's scans have revealed that he didn’t suffer a strain in his left thigh, and will be allowed to resume training this week although it is most likely that Vanderlei Luxemburgo will rest him this weekend in order to have him raring to go against Juventus FC in Italy next week. Question marks still remain over the fitness of club captain Raul, but Guti should be ready by the weekend.

Valencia are having a poor season for their standards but there is always plenty of passion and committment on display when Real Madrid come to visit. The fans always get roudy and loud at the Mestalla and if we fall behind early we could be in trouble. Possession football and controlling the tempo is the key in this match. FC Barcelona face a tricky game at El Sadar against CA Osasuna, so I am hoping we will see yet another vital twist in the championship race.



REAL MADRID XI (probable):

--------------Cesar--------------
Bravo-Helguera-Samuel-Carlos--
---Beckham-Gravesen-Solari----
--------------Figo--------------
------Raul/Owen---Ronaldo----

We will have to be at our best to get the win here, it's always a very tough place to go. With Ranieri gone, Valencia are refreshed and have a new lease of life.

I think we will grind out a win though, maybe 1-2.

He might, but today he decided to let his super-friends shine :strong: !

I think we will see Super-Ronaldo against the evil Zebras in Turin!

Damn Zebras, they have contaminated this beautiful sport with their evil anti-futbol plot! Only one man, not of this earth, can break the walls down!

The exile (scoring drought) will come to an end!
We will believe again!
Super-Ronaldo Returns!!!

Cules WATCHOUT!

This will certainly be an easy win for Valencia (that is, if the ref doesn't decide to screw up). Valencia are playing good football lately, quite the opposite of Real Madrid.

A draw in Mestella would be a good result, a win a dream.

You couldn't have played us in a worse timing IMO. Our team looks rejuvenated and is back to playing proper football while your team have been really poor and you have the Juve game in mind. You'll need the real Ronaldo and Zidane(will he play?) to show up if you are to get anything out of this game IMO.

Anything but a win would be a disappointment for us Valencia fans.

I hate to say this but...

Ronaldo needs to stop having 2nd and 3rd plates of dinner.... and concentrate on his fitness.

his first touch and overall control of the ball was so poor on Wednesday.

That's great news. In Iker we trust :star:

R9 needs to wake up. I have all the faith in him, but he needs to get his act together. And I have this strange feeling that he will score this match :D

Ronaldo seems to be laughing and all in todays training ! :)

Lets hope Lux removes Raul Bravo from the line up and puts Arbeola or Mejia

Merengues, remember the 6-0 trashing in the Cup not many years ago? This time we'll be more humble, with a 2-0 or 3-0 we're okay :shades:
