Valencia CF will battle it out with Real Madrid in a Spanish La Liga match at the Estadio de Mestalla on May 21.
Current Form
The Bats emerged as 2-1 winners over Celta Vigo away on May 14 and they are undefeated in their last two league games. 
Valencia are also unbeaten in their last two home matches having recorded one draw and one win at the Estadio de Mestalla. 
While Madrid secured a 1-0 win over Getafe CF at home on May 13 and it was their second win in their last three La Liga matches.
However, Whites are winless in their last two matches on the road having registered two consecutive defeats as the visitors. 
Team News
Valencia have no injury and suspension concerns, but Dimitri Foulquier, José Gayà, Eray Cömert, Ilaix Moriba and Samuel Lino are all one yellow card away from suspension.
Madrid also do not have suspension and injury worries while Daniel Carvajal and Éder Militão are both one yellow card away from suspension.
Key Players
Justin Kluivert, who has scored twice in his last three La Liga matches, could be the player to inspire Valencia to a win over Madrid. 
Valencia will have to be wary of Marco Asensio who grabbed Madrid's winning goal against Getafe and it was the Spanish playmaker's ninth league goal of the term.

“I'm trying to grab the opportunities that the coach gives me. I'm pleased about equalling my goal tally and with the win," Asensio said after their win over Getafe. 
“We knew it was going to be difficult because there was very limited space between the lines and that's where Eden Hazard and I were trying to get the ball.
"We had to look for the third man quickly and play with precision. We struggled in the first half. We came out better in the second half, we played the ball around quickly," he added.
"We managed to drag Getafe out of position and the spaces appeared. We were very good in the last 35 minutes.”
Madrid emerged as 2-0 winners over Valencia in their last meeting in La Liga and the game took place at the Estadi de la Ceràmica on 2 February 2023.
As a result, the Whites are undefeated in their four league games against the Bats having recorded four consecutive wins.
