After 100 days, Real Madrid has a chance to get back the leader position in La Liga. Barcelona lost the match against Valencia, and Whites have a chance to take over the Primera.
Trip to Valladolid is essential for Real Madrid
On 24th August, Real Madrid could not win the match against Valladolid. At home, Los Blancos could not score two goals and had a chance to tie the game. Unfortunately to Real Madrid fans, after that tour, the club lost the leadership, and now they have an opportunity to take it back. It’s symbolic that Los Merengues has an opportunity to get back to top position against Valladolid.
Karim Benzema and Sergio Ramos are back in action
As it’s believed, the French striker is in good shape and can play against Valladolid from the start. Keep in mind that Karim Benzema has scored 12 goals in La Liga. His main competitor is Lionel Messi, who has scored 14 goals this season. At the same time, Lionel Messi failed to score a goal yesterday against Valencia. In the absence of Karim Benzema, Casemiro and other midfielders could score goals and give Real Madrid a chance to win a Cup Trophy.
Sergio Ramos had a foot injury and could not play against Sevilla. Spanish defender got the injury during the Supercopa in Jeddah. Ramos played until the end of the match and could even score the penalty. His team won the trophy, but Sergio got injured and missed Sevilla’s game. During the pre-match press conference, Zidane said that Ramos is available and can play on Sunday night.
The last trip to Valladolid was very successful for Real Madrid
Los Blancos could win the previous trip in Valladolid. Zidane’s team scored four goals and conceded only one. Zidane wants to have the same result. Madrid fans believe that Casemiro will play along with Valverde to keep the midfield under control.
