Gareth Bale is set to return with Valencia v Real Madrid live streaming to watch from the Mestalla Stadium later tonight (KO 20:00GMT).
Real Madrid will bid to bounce back from their disappointing 2-2 draw at home to Osasuna when they travel to take on Valencia in the evening kickoff from La Liga tonight.
It promises to be classic with both these sides in good form coming into the game, and it gives Gareth Bale the opportunity to play at one of the most famous stadiums in La Liga, the Mestalla in Valenica.

Carlo Ancelotti’s men came from 2-0 down to claim a point thanks to goals from Isco and Pepe, the equalising goal arriving just 10 minutes from the end.
The result left Real five points off top spot and with Barcelona and Atletico both winning and they will head into the game against mid-table Valencia with a defensive crisis.
Pepe was booked in the draw with Osasuna and will miss out through suspension while Raphael Varane is injured. 23 year old Nacho is set to deputise in the middle alongside Sergio Ramos.
Ramos is available to play after having his red card against Osasuna rescinded.
Ancelotti’s side have a good record against Valencia and are currently unbeaten in their last 10 games including 4 straight wins at the Mestalla.
The club bounced back from the dropped points against Osasuna by sealing their place in the next round of the Copa del Rey. Goals from Asier Illarramendi and Angel di Maria sealing a 2-0 win at the Bernabeu after the first leg finished 0-0.
Karim Benzema and Xabi Alonso both made second half appearances in that game and should start on Sunday while Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale missed the game but are expected to feature.
Valencia meanwhile will head into the game in disarray following the sacking of manager Miroslav Djukic.
The 47 year old has only been in the role for 6 months but has paid the price for the club’s inconsistent form culminating in a 3-0 loss to Atletico Madrid last time out.
Youth coach Nico Estevez will take charge of the game on Sunday after taking temporary control during the week.
The 33 year old, who has risen through the coaching ranks at the club, oversaw a narrow 1-0 win over Gimnastic in the Copa del Rey in his first game in charge and he will hope for a similar result on Sunday.
Estevez is sweating on the fitness of Ricardo Costa for the game with the Portuguese defender struggling with a hamstring injury.
