Live in-play betting – 

This looks like one of the most interesting game of the weekend as both teams have started the new season in slightly uncharacteristic fashion.

Valencia look to be making progress under their new manager while Atletico Madrid have looked vulnerable in defence and this could be the season that they finally start leaking in goals.

Valencia remain one of the genuine giant killers in Spain as they have a reputation of humbling the biggest teams in the country when they come visiting.

Real Madrid were the last team to feel their fighting spirit as they held the Spanish and European champions to a 2-2 draw and they will be looking to upset another Madrid based side in this match.

They now have four points from their opening 2 games.

Atletico Madrid won their match against Las Palmas 5-1 despite missing some of their key players and the form of Thomas Partey will play a key role in helping them stun this Valencia side.

The Ghanaian has scored five goals in his last three games and his return will be welcomed by Diego Simeone’s men.

However, they are yet to sort out their defence and they may pay for any defensive mistakes in this game.
