The visit of Valencia to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu is always a cause of concern for Real Madrid .
In the last five seasons, Los Che have scored on three occasions, something within the reach of very few teams.
Not only that, last season Los Blancos had to wait until the 86th minute before hitting the winner.
They led through Cristiano Ronaldo on 27, but a super Dani Parajo free-kick on 82 silenced the home crowd.
Marcelo appeared at the death to tip the balance, and allow Real to continue fighting for the league title, which they eventually conquered in Malaga.
It was a similar story the season before.
On that occasion, Zidane’s team again prevailed, but goals from Rodrigo and Andre Gomes made things a lot tighter than they needed to be, final score 3-2 in favour of Madrid.
Valencia were 2-0 up in 2014/15 but only drew 2-2, in 2013/14 it was another 2-2 draw thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo’s injury-time equaliser, and in 2012/13, the game finished 1-1.
