Real Madrid welcomes Real Valladolid
Real Madrid welcomes Real Valladolid in a match from the 11th round of the Spanish La Liga. Let’s see what’s happening with these two teams in our predictions football 1×2.
Real Madrid’s new manager Santiago Solari will make his La Liga debut in this game. Solari replaced the sacked Julen Lopetegui after the 1-5 loss in El Classico against Barcelona. The Argentine tactician already debuted for Real, leading his team to a 4-0 win against Melilla in the Copa del Rey. Karim Benzema, Marco Asensio, Alvaro Odriozola and Cristo Gonzalez scored for Los Merengues.
How we said, Real Madrid suffered a heavy defeat against Barcelona in the El Classico last week. This didn’t leave any other choice to the board, but to sack Julen Lopetegui. The former manager of Spain was unable to find the right touch in Madrid, which is why right now Real are 9th in La Liga with a 7 points gap behind the leader Barcelona. This is not acceptable, of course.
Against Real Valladolid Santi Solari will have a good opportunity to win his first La Liga win as a manager of Real Madrid. But it won’t be easy, because Valladolid are performing very well this season.
Real Valladolid are currently 6th in La Liga with 16 points and a record of 4 wins, 4 draws and 2 defeats. The team performs in an impressive way in defence, having conceded just 7 goals since the beginning of the season.
In their last five games Valladolid are also impressive – four losses and one draw. All of these numbers shall tell you that Real Madrid will have a tough task on Saturday.
These are our predictions football 1×2 for the La Liga clash between Real Madrid and Real Valladolid. Can Solari win his first win in La Liga? Let’s see.
