With Valencia flying high in La Liga, this fixture takes on another dimension this January. Valencia VS Real Madrid has always held some tension and magic but with the positions of both teams at present, for several years, this fixture has not had the importance in respect of league positioning than it has this season.
Following Real Madrid’s loss on 2016/17 season here at the Mestalla, they will be desperate to revenge this defeat as well as set themselves up for the remainder of the season in their chase for the title. Valencia on the other hand will hope they are still hot on the tails of Barcelona at the end of January and want to push Real Madrid further away from challenging.
All is set up of an amazing match on the weekend of 27 January and you can be here in Valencia to watch the occasion unfold.
FROM AN INCREDIBLE £279, YOU CAN VISIT THE CITY WITH THIS PACKAGE –
2 NIGHTS IN A CENTRAL 3* HOTEL WITH BREAKFAST – Either Friday to Sunday or Saturday to Monday (match 27 January, 16:15) AIRPORT TRANSFERS TICKETS TO SEE VALENCIA VS REAL MADRID
PLUS, the following week, Real Madrid return to Valencia to play another La Liga match against Levante at Estadi Ciutat de Valencia, and we will be offering the same package from £245.
We will be happy to advise you on all elements of your stay from places to visit, eat and drink and anything else you would like to experience in Valencia.
