Cheap hostel in Madrid to see the Galacticos take on Valencia
Jose Mourinho's Galacticos will entertain Valencia at the Bernabeu Stadium on Sunday December 5th, making the game ideal for those staying in a cheap hostel in Madrid.

Real Madrid currently lead the Spanish Primera BBVA league by one point from rivals Barcelona, with Valencia two places further back in fourth.

They are just six points from the top however, and manager Unai Emery will be hoping that his side can close that gap even more with a crucial three points.

Having sold the likes of David Silva and David Villa to Manchester City and Barcelona respectively, Valencia were expected to struggle this year.

A strong team ethic and a number of good performances have put them back in the hunt for a Champions League spot, after experiencing success in the competition through the early part of this century.

Madrid meanwhile have managed to find their swagger after a slow start to the campaign.

Flamboyant striker Cristiano Ronaldo has notched 38 goals in his last 38 games for the club, while the likes of Angel di Maria and Mesut Ozil have also grown into their roles at the club following big-money moves.

Last weekend, Madrid kept up the pace at the summit of the league by defeating Hercules 3-1.

They had to come from a goal down to earn their victory, with di Maria and Ronaldo sharing the strikes.

However, Valencia lost a bit of ground after been held 1-1 at home to Real Zaragoza, with an own goal from Lanzaro giving them a share of the spoils.ADNFCR-2435-ID-800208143-ADNFCR
