Real Madrid Vs Valencia: Tactical Preview
Carlo Ancelotti will probably opt for a 4-3-3 formation and could ask his players to dominate the game and create enough chances to win this contest.
Gennaro Gattuso will set his side up in a 4-3-3 formation and might instruct his men to keep things solid at the back during the 90 minutes.
David Alaba and Aurelien Tchouameni will be sidelined for this game because of injuries. Otherwise, Ancelotti has no fresh injury concerns to cope with this week.
Real Madrid Predicted XI
Courtois; Carvajal, Militao, Rudiger, Mendy; Kroos, Valverde, Modric; Rodrygo, Benzema, Vinicius
Nico Gonzalez and Samu Castillejo will be sidelined for this game due to injuries. Otherwise, Gattuso should have a strong squad to choose from this Wednesday.
Valencia Predicted XI
Mamardashvili; Correia, Comert, Diakhaby, Gaya; Musah, Guillamon, Almeida; Kluivert, Cavani, Lino
Thibaut Courtois might have to make a few good saves if Real Madrid are to secure a clean sheet in this game. Both Vinicius Jr. and Karim Benzema will have to carry most of the goal-scoring workload for Los Blancos on the attacking end of the field.
Luka Modric and Toni Kroos will serve as the main playmakers for the Madrid giants in this cup game away in Saudi Arabia.
Gattuso’s side will focus on using the pace of Justin Kluivert and the guile of Edinson Cavani to expose some of Real Madrid’s weaknesses on the counter. Giorgi Mamardashvili will have to find a way to make some solid stops at the back if Valencia are to have any chance of securing a result in midweek.
Jose Gaya would be eager to give a good account of himself down the left flank and create some decent chances in the final third.
