Fresh from sealing a knockout spot in the UEFA Champions League, Real Madrid kindly their rivalry with Valencia on Saturday.
Carlo Ancelotti’s boys were fluid in the game against Braga in midweek as they recorded a 3-0 victory over the Portuguese side at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Goals from Brahim Diaz, Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo Goes ensured the record winners of the competition booked an early qualification with two games to spare.
Valencia come into the game against Madrid on the back of four games without a loss to their defeat to Real Betis last month. They have won two and drawn the other two in their last four league games.
Valencia picked up a 1-0 home win over Madrid last season but had beaten in the earlier encounter at the Bernabeu with a 2-0 scoreline.
Madrid also beat Los Che on penalties to advance to the final during the 2022 Spanish Super Cup earlier this year.
Madrid will be without Kepa Arrizabalga after the goalkeeper suffered an injury in the warmup ahead of the game against Braga.
His absence means Lunin will be in post once again on Saturday.
