Match preview

With the gap at the top now looking insurmountable, will Real Madrid’s priorities lie elsewhere than La Liga?

Before the international break, los Blancos were beaten 2-1 in el Clásico at Camp Nou.

The visitors thought they’d won it eight minutes from time, only for Marco Asensio’s goal to be ruled out by VAR for offside, with Barça then snatching the win themselves in stoppage time.

This defeat leaves Carlo Ancelotti’s team 12 points adrift Barcelona and, even with 12 games to go, that gap isn’t likely to be overturned.

So, Real Madrid’s focus now is on the two cup competitions.

This forthcoming Wednesday, they’ll be back at Camp Nou for the second leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final, 1-0 down from the first leg.

So, given their host’s potential lack of focus, can Real Valladolid spring a massive surprise?

Blanquivioletas start the weekend just two points and two places above the relegation zone, following a 3-1 defeat to Athletic Club last time out.

Given that Pacheta’s team have won just one away game since 1 October, a shock Valladolid victory at the Bernabéu seems unlikely.
