While they did go onto register their first win of the season with a triumph over Real Betis, Real Madrid will be the first to put their hands up and admit that they have been far from convincing in the league till now.
Drawing their season opener, Real Madrid needed three goals the last time around to prevail in a five goal thriller. While the fight and character the side showed would have filled the hearts up of the club’s ardent supporters, the teetering foray the club has made into this season of La Liga needs massive ironing out.

RM Vs VLD Fantasy Picks
At a time when Real Valladolid have offered absolutely nothing in attack, the club has focused all its attention towards defence. And its managed to see them past a tricky time with the side pulling off two draws, both down to the expansive services of Roberto Jimenez Gago.
Up against a Real Valladolid side which has scored just the two goals in three fixtures, Real Madrid will quietly fancy their chances of pulling off a cleansed today. The club already has the one in two encounters, a side whose defensive acumen is well known to everyone in the league.
It sees us opt for a trio from the side, one beginning with the selection of CB Sergio Ramos. He began his scoring sorties in the league against Real Betis with his penalty assuring his side of the three points in a five goal thriller.
Slotting in next to him is Dani Carvajal who has the one assist with Raphael Varane bringing an end to the trio of selections from the club.
Why Federico Valverde has been shuffled around with so much is something which continues to remain a beleaguerment. Ever since his introduction into the setup last year, he’s taken to the game like a fish takes to water, showing why he’s made such headway in the league with his goal the last time around.
Luka Modric has been off the boil ever since last season but in Toni Kroos’ absence, he has the much needed leeway to express himself freely. CDM Casemiro will bring an end to our set of picks from the home side owing to his ability to make his presence felt in both the ambits of the side’s game.
Scorer of one of the two goals his side has till now, Michel was always going to be an instant pick for us from the opposition. We are pairing him alongside Oscar Plano, two names who can move in tandem to make life a searing headache for a Real Madrid defence sent packing for two the last time around.
He’s played a part in both the goals his side has till now with the one goal and one assist making Sergi Guardiola a must have pick for us today. Real Madrid meanwhile see us rope in striker Karim Benzema after his assist the last time around.
Captain And Vice-Captain
His penalty against Real Betis see Ramos captain our side for today while Karim is the vice-captain.
Gago, Ramos, Dani, Varane, Valverde, Casemiro, Modric, Michel, Plano, Karim, Sergi
