Real Madrid – Real Valladolid
La Liga champions Real Madrid will visit Real Valladolid on Saturday in a match from the 24th round of the competition. Los Blancos will be motivated to win after the leader Atletico Madrid’s mistake against Levante on Wednesday. Let’s preview it.
Real Madrid are currently second in La Liga with 49 points being 6 points behind Atletico Madrid, but with a game more compared to Los Colchoneros. Against Real Valladolid Zinedine Zidane’s team will try to win its four consecutive win in the league and 16th for the season. Real Madrid won four of their last five matches in the Spanish elite division.
In the previous round Los Blancos faced Valencia at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano and played a solid game for a 2-0 win. The champions scored both of their goals in the first half when Karim Benzema and Toni Kroos put the ball in the net.
The bad news for Madrid come from another injury in the squad. This time it is the right back Dani Carvajal who had to leave the pitch against Valencia. He won’t be playing on Saturday.
Real Valladolid approach this game against Real Madrid from the relegation zone of La Liga. Valladolid are currently 18th in the standings with 21 points, so they are desperate for some kind of positive result on Saturday. Sergio’s team have won just four of its matches this season which explains why they are in such a situation right now.
In the previous round Valladolid paid a visit to Eibar and managed to get a point after a 1-1 draw. Roque Mesa opened the score for the visitors, but Kike successfully equalised for Eibar.
That’s the preview for the La Liga match between Real Valladolid and Real Madrid on Saturday. For the visitors only the three points are a solution in this game.
