La Liga: Real Madrid vs Valencia: UK start time, how to watch

Later tonight, Real Madrid will welcome Valencia to the Bernabeu, in one of the biggest matches in the Santander La Liga calendar.

With the race for the Spanish title balanced on a knife edge, this evening’s game is of paramount importance.

The titanic collision between a couple of sport’s biggest teams, pits two of the best strikers on the planet against each other. That’s right, in just a matter of hours, Karim Benzema and Edinson Cavani will go toe-to-toe in a battle that fans can’t afford to miss.

While the reigning Ballon d’Or King is always dangerous, he’ll be even deadlier tonight. The Frenchman is right on the cusp of becoming the fourth all-time La Liga scorer. Having racked up a whopping 228 goals in his 14 years with ‘La Casa Blanca’ he only needs one more to overtake Spanish legend, Raul Gonzalez.

But he’s not the only man with a point to prove. Edinson Cavani has rolled back the years this season, scoring 5 goals in 11 La Liga appearances. At 35, some would argue that his best days are behind him. But if his form is anything to go by, he’s still got plenty left in the tank. And with his first touch, intelligent movement off the ball, and clinical finishing all still very much at his disposal, Thibaut Courtois, will have to keep his eye on the ball.
