- Orellana and Wesimann looking tired and Sergio will be looking, no doubt to bring on fresh legs for ‘Pucela’. Not a hot evening in the Spanish capital with the temperature current 16C/61F. Great work from Marcelo as he skips into the area but with the ball on his less favoured right foot, blazes high and wide.
Looks like we’ll be seeing Vinicius imminently with the Brazilian winger getting into shape ahead of an appearance as Waldo goes close for Valladolid driving the ball across the face of Courtois’ goal.
We reach the 45 minute mark and the whistle sound for both sides to take a break after the endeavours of the 45′ of action. Madrid enjoying the better chances and bulk of possession but are up against an extremely well drilled Valladolid side who have caused a few problems for Zidane’s rear guard.
The save from Roberto was top class but Casemiro really should have driven the ball home from short range, far from a howler but not one for the Casemiro show-reel.
Roberto pulls off an incredible stop from a Jovic header and Casemiro whacks the ball off the crossbar from the parry, the whistle then sound for an infringement but Valladolid riding their luck somewhat there.
