Time: 12:30 AM IST
Valencia are currently unbeaten in their last seven games in all competitions (W4, D3). Valencia started the season very poorly but new head coach Albert Celades has overseen an upturn in form. He has taken them to sixth in LaLiga. From 19 games, they have won eight while losing four times in the league.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid are enjoying a revival under Zinedine Zidane. They currently sit second in LaLiga, tied on 40 points with Barcelona after 19 games. Real Madrid are unbeaten in their last 14 games in all competitions (W9, D5). However, three draws in their last four games means that the Spanish side will need to be at their best to beat Valencia in Jeddah.
