Real Madrid vs Valladolid live streaming today for free.Real Valladolid may be in their first La Liga season following promotion but they’ve adapted to life in the top flight superbly. Last Monday they became only the second team this season to win at Sevilla, as they continued to sit around the European places.
Typically, Oscar and Patrick Ebert were the star men of that game, as they’ve been Valladolid’s two key men so far this season. This weekend Miroslav Djukic will be handed his toughest task yet, but has insisted he’ll stick to his admirable positive football. Jesús Rueda will be a huge miss in defence, and was the only sourt note in Monday’s performance. Valladolid hasn’t won three in a row in La Liga since 2009.
Real Madrid meanwhile offered a strong performance to put away their city rivals Atlético Madrid, as they moved to within five points of that very team. Although it wasn’t one of their best performances, Madrid showed their quality in flashes which was enough. Coming into this, another away game, Madrid have lost three of their seven away games, their worst run since José Mourinho took charge.
Real’s Champions League campaign is now on hold for two months.
Their exploits in Group D – where they finished second – came to a conclusion on Tuesday with a 4-1 victory over Ajax.
Next up is Saturday’s league trip to Real Valladolid and Jose Mourinho’s men head into the contest lying third in the table, five points behind second-placed Atletico Madrid and 11 behind leaders Barcelona.
Those deficits will surely need to be reduced quickly if Real are to have any chance this season of reclaiming the league title they won last term, and it is something Casillas says he and his team-mates will be making every effort towards, particularly with there being no European commitments now until the Champions League resumes with the last-16 stage in February.
