On Saturday, from 9:00 p.m., Valladolid and Real Madrid will play at the José Zorrilla Stadium, behind closed doors, a match belonging to the 24th day of LaLiga Santander.
The pucelanos arrive at the meeting in the heat of struggle to escape from the relegation zone. They are second to last in the standings, with 21 points, tied with Eibar. At home they have a balance of 2 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses, with 12 goals for and 19 against. However, their performance in the last matches at home is very worrying, since they have not won at Zorrilla, in the League or the Cup, since December 11 (3-2 at Osasuna). Since then they have added a draw (2-2 against Elche) and 4 defeats (against Barcelona, Valencia, Levante and Huesca). Sergio’s men arrive, however, at the clash, with enthusiasm and some morale, since they come from a 1-1 draw in Eibar, against a direct rival in the fight to achieve permanence.
Rael Madrid will appear in Pucela with the obligation to win, to keep alive their options to continue fighting for the league title with Atlético de Madrid. However, he will have in mind the next Champions League match, as he will face Atalanta on Wednesday, in the first leg of the eighth of the top European club competition. Zidane will make rotations in his starting eleven, but more forced by absences due to injury (Ramos, Hazard, Marcelo, Carvajal, Rodrygo, Valverde, Odriozola and Militao), than by the will to give rest to his key players. Again, the homegrown players will have the opportunity to show their level in a league match.
