Real Madrid beat Real Valladolid 1-0 as Vinicius Jr. gets his name on the scoresheet. It was a tight contest which saw Madrid missing many early chances.
Zinedine Zidane rotated the squad and gave other squad players a chance. Marcelo, Isco and Odriozola started the game. Zidane also started Luka Jovic who hasn’t yet found his form. Jovic missed many chances, including a 1v1 situation. Zidane’s men found it difficult to penetrate through the defence and barely made an impact.
Zidane made early changes to his team with additions of Vinicius, Asensio and Carvajal. The substitution paid off as the substitute Vinicius Jr. scored a wonderful goal in the 65th minute. His goal proved to be enough as Real Madrid won 1-0 at home. Luka Jovic had an awful game again and failed to make any real impact. With Manchester United transfer rumours coming in, Zinedine Zidane could offload Jovic for a loan to revitalise his form.
