Bordalas sends warning to Real
Valencia head coach Jose Bordalas has warned Real Madrid that his side will show no fear when the two teams meet at the Mestalla in La Liga on Sunday.
Los Che have made a strong start to the season, picking up 10 points from their opening four La Liga fixtures and they are priced at 7/2 to claim another victory this weekend.

Bordalas makes strong start
It has certainly been an impressive start to life at the Mestalla for Bordalas, who took charge of Valencia at the end of last season after departing Getafe.
Sunday's clash with Carlo Ancelotti's Real will arguably be Valencia's toughest assignment of the season to date, but they have a good recent record against the Madrid giants, as they have only lost one of the previous four meetings between the two sides at the Mestalla - claiming a 4-1 success in last season's corresponding fixture.
Los Che boss full of confidence
Bordalas is certainly feeling confident heading into Sunday's clash, insisting Valencia will show no fear, although they are still full of respect for their opponents.
"We absolutely aren’t scared of anyone," Bordalas told reporters at his pre-match press conference. "I never have been. Respect, yes, obviously, not only for them (Real Madrid) but everyone.
"We know what kind of team Madrid are, but we have confidence and we are prepared. The boys look good, very excited."
Real have also started the new domestic season strongly, registering three wins and a draw, while they opened their Champions League campaign with a 1-0 victory at Inter Milan on Wednesday.
The winner of Sunday's contest could end the weekend at the top of La Liga.
