Join us for minute to minute coverage as Real Valladolid host Real Madrid has Zinedine Zidane could reach the top of the table after Barcelona's loss to Valencia yesterday!

LIVE
Post.
As always, we thank you for joining us this evening. See you soon!
90'
FT: Valladolid 0-1 Real Madrid. Though they weren’t at their attacking best, Real Madrid come away with the three points, beating Real Valladolid by a narrow 1-0 margin. Though the visitors absolutely dominated possession, they were wholly ineffective in breaking down the opposing midfield, which did well to hold and protect the backline for much of the game. The hosts offered precious little going forward which allowed increased numbers to get forward and attack as the game wore on.
90'
Rodrygo is replaced after stretching his legs (possible injury?) and he is replaced by Luka Jovic.
88'
Zidane calls upon the fresh legs of Valverde, who will enter the match in place of Modric.
87'
85' CLOSE! After a cleared cross from the left, Modric is caught in possession by Fernandez. After winning the ball, he attempts to curl an audacious shot towards the bottom-right corner - but it misses the target narrowly!

79'
NACHO’S DIPPING HEADER PUTS MADRID IN THE LEAD! Kroos’ corner is beaten away by a Valladolid head, but it’s delivered back to the midfielder, whose second effort finds the head of his right-back at the edge of the six-yard box! It's a nifty finish into the back post - evading centre-back and goalkeeper in the process!
78'
GOAAAAAAALLLLLLLLL!!!!
76'
Plano comes on for Unal as we enter the final 15 minutes of the match.
76'
Following the breakdown in Madrid’s attack, Valladolid get it forward through the Villa. Just as the substitute looks to get into midfield, Nacho drags him down cynically, earning a yellow card.
75'
Real Madrid have 10 men inside Valladolid’s half as they launch another attack, but Rodrygo’s poor cross is beaten away by the head of Olivas who steps across Benzema easily.
73'
Real Madrid’s first change sees Isco replaced by Vazquez.
70'
No real superior side at the moment. Real Madrid are not all that well organised today and just haven't managed to shoot on target.
67'
Madrid are forced to pass around a packed Valladolid midfield, as no options are forthcoming through the crowded middle. More than an hour has passed, but the visitors still struggle to find a way through Sergio’s drilled defenders.
63'
Just wide! Isco takes a hop before clipping the free-kick around the wall looking for the top right-hand corner. It clears the defenders, but fails to curl back into the frame of the goal - flying just past the post!
59'
CHANCE! A cross finally falls for Madrid as Mendy’s delivery from the left is whacked towards goal somewhat unconvincingly by Benzema. It’s a good chance, but the shot doesn’t trouble Masip.
58'
Michel is replaced by Villa with just over 30 minutes remaining as Real Valladolid make their first change.
57'
Modric is pushed off the ball in midfield, but a free-kick is not awarded as play is allowed to continue. The non-call infuriates the midfielder, who says something to the fourth official; words worthy of a yellow card.
53'
Casemiro is once again a standout performer for Real Madrid tonight. He has become more than the traditional midfielder, with his runs usually leading the way for goals, as it just did with Rodrygo.
51'
Save! Rodrygo's curled shot from the edge of the penalty area is blocked by Masip.
48'
Both coaches have opted against making changes at half-time, but Zidane has sent a part of his bench to go through their warm-ups: Vazquez and Valverde.
46'
Back underway!
45'
HT: Valladolid 0-0 Real Madrid. The two sides enter half-time level at 0-0, though it looked as though Real Madrid had broken the deadlock in the 12th minute, but Casemiro’s headed goal was ruled off after VAR had deemed there to be offside in the build-up. The visitors dominated proceedings, keeping most of the ball and never really worried about conceding, though their ascendancy was not punctuated by any real chances at the other end, as the Merengues failed to manage a single shot on target.
44'
Michel takes a corner-kick to the near post, but the pace on the delivery doesn’t allow Fernandez a chance to flick it on. After falling to the foot of Modric, it’s booted clear to allow Madrid to resettle.
40'
Casemiro is pushed down cynically in midfield, just as the Real Madrid player was shaping for a shot. The free-kick is taken by Kroos, but the central location makes it difficult, and the delivery is headed out immediately.
38'
Mendy shapes an ineffective cross from the left, but the looping delivery forces Salisu, Fernandez and Alcaraz to all jump into each other in an attempt to clear the ball. It’s finally whacked away, but not after Alcarez is sent to the floor in a heap following the collision.
36'
Raphael Varane ia booked for bringing down Unal.
35'
Valladolid are under a spell of pressure as Nacho’s low cross is repelled at the first time of asking, though the clearance puts the ball back in Madrid’s possession via a throw-in.
29'
Rodrygo again finds himself on the floor after a cynical tackle from San Emeterio. The free-kick is taken short to Isco, who rounds the 18-yard box before chipping a cross into Casemiro. It’s a useful move as it opens up space in the penalty area, but Masip is allowed to step up and to grab it.
26'
Unal stays down after Ramos goes over the top of the striker to win a header. The centre-back has shown little restraint today, as he gives away a needless free-kick in midfield.
20'
Kroos’ intent pressing forces Fernandez to pass back to Salisu, who takes an awful first touch. The inability to settle the pass nearly allows Kroos to nip in and win possession ahead of Masip’s penalty area, but a last-second pass to Olivas narrowly finds its intended target and saves Valladolid’s blushes.
18'
Real Madrid looking a bit stuck now. The hosts are doing their best to pressure them and it seems to be working.
14'
Michel whips a dangerous corner from the left into the six-yard box, where a retreating Courtois is forced to flap at it, getting enough of a touch on the ball to keep it from nestling in the far corner.
12'
VAR has a look and it seems Casemiro was caught offside! Kroos floats the free-kick from his position in right midfield to the far post, where the holding midfielder beats both Fernandez and Olivas to the ball, heading it home comfortably. After a brief review, however, the referee overrules the goal, as Casemiro had drifted slightly off!
12'
GOAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLL!!!! But it could be checked by VAR...
10'
A dangerous and wild two-footed slide on Rodrygo sees Fernandez shown an early yellow card.
6'
Ramos rashly charges through the back of Guardiola high up the pitch in an effort to win the ball, and gives away a cheap free-kick which allows the hosts to clear their lines.
3'
Real Madrid are controlling early on, looking to get the possession early as the ball is fired down the left flank for Benzema.
1'
And we're off!

Valladolid are under a spell of pressure as Nacho’s low cross is repelled at the first time of asking, though the clearance puts the ball back in Madrid’s possession via a throw-in.
Prev.
Real Valladolid enter their match against Real Madrid on the back of eight without victory in LaLiga - with their last victory coming over Mallorca on November 3. The 15th placed side have one of Spain’s better defences, but Sergio’s side often find it difficult to find the net, despite the coach employing two strikers.
Prev.
On a rich vein of form which has seen them win their last two, as well as go 11 matches unbeaten domestically, the visitors will be firm favourites for the win.
Prev.
Valencia’s 2-0 victory over Barcelona yesterday put Real Madrid’s fate into their own hands; with a win taking Zinedine Zidane’s side three-points clear of their rivals.
Prev.
Real Madrid starting XI: Courtois; Nacho, Varane, Sergio Ramos, Ferland Mendy; Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Isco; Rodrygo and Benzema.
Prev.
Valladolid starting XI: Masip; Antoñito, Salisu, Joaquín, Kiko Olivas, Raúl Carnero; Míchel, Fede San Emeterio, Alcaraz; Ünal and Sergi Guardiola.
