Real Madrid is welcoming Real Valladolid to Santiago Bernabeu in round 4 in the Spanish LaLiga.
Real Madrid is on a 3-game streak without a loss, and while they weren’t playing well in their first game in LaLiga, their second game was much better. Real Madrid was playing against Betis on the road this past weekend, and they have had 55% of ball possession in this match, 4 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 7 big chances created, and a solid 86% of the correct passes. This was an exciting match filled with turnovers. Real Madrid has had the lead in the 14th minute, while Betis scored two quick goals in the 35th and the 37th minute, and suddenly, Real Madrid was losing 2-1. In the 48th minute, Betis has scored an own goal, and the score was once against tied. Betis conceded a red card in the 67th minute, and a penalty in the 82nd minute, which Ramos turned into a goal. Real Madrid has won this match 2-3. Valverde and Ramos have each scored 1 goal so far, while Benzema and Carvajal added 1 assist each. Asensio and Diaz are both injured, while Militao and Kroos are still questionable for this game. Real Madrid is the current titleholder, and while they are one of the favorites to win the title once again, I think they will have a tough time defending it this season.
Valladolid is one of the worst teams in this early LaLiga season, and they haven’t won any of their last 5 games. During their last 3 games in LaLiga, Valladolid has scored only 2 goals while conceding 2 goals. Herrero and Guardiola have each scored 1 goal for Valladolid so far this season, while Guardiola also added 1 assist. Olivas, Alcaraz, Hacen, Gassama, Moyano, and Fernandez are all injured, while Masip is still questionable. In their most recent match against Celta Vigo at home, Valladolid has had 53% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and 74% of the correct passes. After losing 0-1 at half time, Valladolid was able to score a goal from a penalty kick in the 66th minute. The final result of this match was 1-1. Valladolid is in 16th place in the standings with 2 points, 2 scored goals, and 4 conceded goals. After escaping the relegation zone by 6 points last season, Valladolid is not doing so well in this early season, and I don’t think they will be so lucky to avoid the relegation zone this season. Who knows, the season is long, and anything is possible, but Valladolid doesn’t have the depth to play well consistently.
Valladolid hasn’t won their last 4 games, while they have lost their last 5 away games in a row. When playing at home, Real Madrid has not lost to Valladolid in their last 12 games. Real Madrid is a much better team here, and the only option here is to side with Real Madrid at home.
