Valladolid 0-1 Real Madrid: Nacho winner sends Zidane’s men 3 pts clear at the top of LaLiga
Real Madrid moved three points clear at the top of LaLiga after Nacho scored the only goal in a 1-0 win over Real Valladolid at Estadio Jose Zorrilla.
Nacho scored his first LaLiga goal of the season to earn Real Madrid a 1-0 victory over Real Valladolid that sent Los Blancos top.
With title rivals Barcelona slipping to a 2-0 defeat to Valencia on Saturday, Zidane’s men earned a hard-fought victory over a Valladolid side that came into the game unbeaten in three league matches.
Chances were few and far between at either end and the points looked likely to be shared after Karim Benzema missed from point-blank range with only Valladolid goalkeeper Jordi Masip to beat.
But Nacho arrived in the box to head home with 12 minutes left and put his side in the driving seat at a crucial stage in the title race.
