Real Madrid vs Valencia Gaya is in the squad

Valencia will be without key central defender Gabriel Paulista with the Brazilian unable to make a speedy recovery for Thursday’s clash against Real Madrid at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano.

Albert Celades has a selection headache at the heart of his defence, and not a pleasant one either, with error prone Elaquiem Mangala and Mouctar Diakhaby, as well as the inexperienced Hugo Guillamon to choose from.

Mangala is not thought to be fully fit while Diakhaby is under the spotlight after giving away an injury-time penalty against Levante, while Guillamon has made just two senior appearances.

However, Los Che are boosted by the news that Jose Gaya has made the cut, after an initial scare as he left Tuesday’s training session alongside the club’s doctor.
