Jose Mourinho’s side have enjoyed an excellent start to the new season and have lost only once in their 11 games so far, scoring an impressive 39 goals in the process – more than any other club in the top tier of Spanish football.
Mourinho will be hoping for a repeat performance from when the two clubs last met where the men in white ran out 6-3 winners thanks to a hat-trick from Argentinian forward Gonzalo Higuain, a brace from Kaka while Karim Benzema also found the net.
That win came at the Mastalla – the venue for Saturday’s fixture, and Valencia will be hoping for a better result in front of their own fans this time round.
There was cause for real concern for Mourinho during the international break as Christiano Ronaldo returned from helping Portugal secure a place in Euro 2012 with a thigh strain, although he is expected to pull through in time to start against Valencia.
Alvaro Arbeloa is also a doubt for the game having returned from international duty with Spain injured, and Mourinho may be tempted to give new signing Nuri Sahin a run out after the Turkey midfielder made his debut for Madrid in the 7-1 win over Osasuna last time out.
Ricardo Carvalho and Fabio Coentrao appear to be winning their race to be fit in time for Saturday’s fixture, while Kaka should be fit although the Brazilian is likely to start the game on the bench.
Valencia face an ever increasing injury list and will go into the game unable to call upon the services of Sergio Canales, Ever Banega and Hedwiges Maduro, with Pablo Piatti likely to get the nod from Unai Emery to start up front behind Roberto Soldado.
