La Liga: Real Valladolid Real Madrid: Head to head; Probable Playing XI; Match Details; VLL vs RMA Live Streaming details- On the back of a 2-0 win against Valencia at home, Real Madrid will now travel to Estadio José Zorrilla to face 19th place, Valladolid, in a La Liga match on Sunday (February 21).
Before Zinedine Zidane’s side face Atalanta in their UEFA Champions League game, Madrid will expect a comfortable outing in Valladolid. Placed second on the league table with 46 points from 22 games, Real Madrid are six points behind league leaders Atletico Madrid who have 55 points from 22 games. A win on Sunday will help Madrid close the gap.
For Valladolid, the target is very simple, win and continue to fight for survival in the league or lose and move a step closer to relegation. With 21 points from 23 matches, Valladolid are just in the relegation zone. But a win can help them move to 14th place on better goal difference.
Real Madrid (WWWLW): After losing to Levante at home, Madrid have come back to winning ways, with three consecutive victories in the league. With four wins and a loss, Madrid have scored 12 points out of possible 15. They have scored 11 goals in the last five games and conceded three.
Real Valladolid (DLLDD): Winless in their last six matches, Valladolid are in a rut that they desperately want to get out of. In the last five, Sergio González’s men have drawn three and lost two picking up only three points. They have conceded nine and have scored six.
Head-to-head record: In their last five meetings, Real Madrid have won four of them while sharing the spoils in the other. Madrid have scored nine goals and have conceded only twice against Valladolid in their last five games.
Attack and defence: Without Sergio Ramos, Karim Benzema, Dani Carvajal, Eden Hazard, Federico Valverde, Rodrygo, and Marcelo, Real Madrid will have to field a second-fiddled squad against Valladolid. But with Raphael Varane and Nacho in defence and Marco Asensio and Vinicius Junior in the attack, Madrid will still be the favourite.
For Valladolid, there is no good news either. They will miss Lucas Olaza who is suspended besides seven players with injuries. However, with Fede San Emeterio, Ruben Alcaraz, Joaquin, and Oscar Plano back in the squad, Sergio will have plenty to choose from.
Real Madrid: With scoring duties solely on Karim Benzema, the French striker has bagged 16 goals and five assists this season across competitions. He is followed by Casemiro with five goals and an assist.
Real Valladolid: Marcos de Sousa and Shon Weissman are Valladolid’s top scorers with three goals each.
Real Valladolid: Masip; Luis Perez, Gonzalez, Joaquin, Nacho; Plano, Kike Perez, Mesa, Orellana; Weissman, Guardiola
Real Madrid: Courtois; Vazquez, Varane, Nacho, Mendy; Modric, Casemiro, Kroos; Asensio, Mariano, Vinicius
