Match Report Real Madrid 2 – Valladolid 0: Vinicius Changes the Luck


Real Madrid got finally the three points in La Liga after a suffered victory (2-0) against Real Valladolid in a very tough game. Los Blancos didn’t improve the way of playing and some footballers don’t deserve to start the next game, but they got the victory after five winless games in the league competition.

Santiago Hernán Solari trusted again in Gareth Bale and Marco Asensio in the attacking line, but both were very disappointing. The supporters ask themselves if they deserve much more opportunities to start the game or it’s time for new faces like Vinicius Junior. Reguilón and Nacho played in the defense, making a good job.

It’s hard to see positive things in the game apart from the victory. The team doesn’t play good and Valladolid, a newly promoted team, had the chance to win at Santiago Bernabéu. However, the club whose chairman is Ronaldo Nazario, missed their chances with two balls hitting the bar.

Solari made some changes in the second half, replacing Casemiro and Gareth Bale, who made another terrible game in the season that he was supposed to lead the team and replace Cristiano Ronaldo as the leader. Vinicius Junior had some minutes and he was again decisive, as he was in the Copa del Rey game at Melilla.

The Brazilian player shot in the minute 82nd and the game touched in Kiko Oliva and found the net. Vinicius celebrated his first goal -although it was own goal- at Santiago Bernabéu. It is nice to see a face with hunger and hope. Sergio Ramos closed the scoreboard with a penalty kicked in the Panenka style in the last minute. Three points to recover the calm, but there are many things to be improved. Now, Los Blancos play four games in a row on the road, against Celta, Eibar in La Liga and Viktoria Plzen and Roma in the Champions League.
