Real Madrid: Los Blanos are coming off of a 3-1 win at Celta Vigo to start the season with Vinicius Jr., Toni Kroos and Lucas Vazquez scoring the goals. Real looked a bit inconsistent in defense but were very strong in space in the final third to put the match away. Expect Bale to start again even though he seemed likely to leave the club before the season began.
Real Valladolid: Valladolid stunned Real Betis on the road on Sunday, ruining Nabil Fekir's debut. Oscar Plano scored in the 89th minute to earn one of the more surprising results of the weekend in La Liga. This team outplayed Betis, had more shots (14-13) and were smart with the ball and physical. Repeating that against Real Madrid may be too much to ask.
Bale gets his first goal of the season and Karim Benzema adds two in an easy win.
