COMMENTARY

Gayà
Yellow Card
Valencia
24′ Gaya has received a booking for remonstrating with the referee. 
23′ NO GOAL! VAR has come to Madrid’s rescue, with Gomez having been deemed offside as he flicked on Soler’s pass, though it looked extremely tight. Valencia protest, but the score remains 0-0.
21′ Rodrigo has prodded home from close-range after latching onto Gomez’s flick-on, but there will be a VAR check for offside.
18′ Valencia have lost 87 LaLiga games againstMadrid, more than against any other opponent.
16′ Another attempt from Hazard, this time from range. The former Chelsea star gets plenty of power and dip on his shot, but Cillessen is equal to it.
14′ OFF THE POST! Now it’s Courtois’ turn to prove his quality, lunging low to his left to tip Rodrigo’s strike onto the right-hand upright. End-to-end stuff.
12′ CHANCE! That’s a huge stop from Cillessen, who sticks out a leg to deny Hazard from point-blank range, after the forward had been played through one-on-one by Benzema.
10′ Benzema has been drifting out to a wide left position for much of the play so far, and this time he gets the chance to run directly at his marker, cutting in from the flank. He squares it to Kroos, who had made a supporting run to the edge of the area, but the midfielder’s first-time effort does not test Cillessen too much.
8′ Madrid have only lost one of their last seven games in all competitions against Valencia, going down 2-1 at Mestalla in a LaLiga match in April 2019.
6′ Parejo delivers an inviting cross to the back post, but Courtois had made the decision to rush off his line and the Belgian gets a decent fist to it.
5′ It has been a game of attack versus defence in the opening five minutes, with Valencia all but camped on the edge of their own box. A slack pass from a Madrid player finally allows the visitors to counter, however, with Torres winning a free-kick in a dangerous position down the right.
3′ Madrid quickly settle into their stride, with Kroos, Benzema and Casemiro all involved in a patiently worked move down the left. Hazard eventually switches the play, giving Benzema room to work his way into the area, and he soon gets off the first effort of the game, which is blocked.
1′ KICK-OFF! Valencia, wearing an all-blue away strip, get proceedings up and running.
The teams are out at Madrid’s training stadium, which is hosting this match so work on Santiago Bernabeu can go ahead as planned. Kick-off is moments away.
Albert Celades has made four changes from the side which started against Levante. In come Wass, Mangala, Torres and Kondogbia, with Florenzi, Diakhaby, Guedes and Coquelin dropping out.
VALENCIA SUBSTITUTES: Thierry Correia, Goncalo Guedes, Manu Vallejo, Ruben Sobrino, Francis Coquelin, Alessandro Florenzi, Denis Cheryshev, Mouctar Diakhaby, Jaume Domenech, Juame Costa, Kee Kang-In, Kevin Gameiro.
VALENCIA (4-4-2): Jasper Cillessen; Daniel Wass, Hugo Guillamon, Eliaquim Mangala, Jose Gaya; Feran Torres, Daniel Parejo, Geoffrey Kondogbia, Carlos Soler; Rodrigo Moreno, Maxi Gomez.
