Real Madrid are ready to start fresh in their La Liga campaign today, taking on sixth place (at the time of this writing) Valladolid. I wonder what it would be like to be in sixth place? We can find out if we win today and Getafe and Levante also lose. Hmph. Well, slowly but surely, one game at a time, we can try to claw our way back into this La Liga campaign. Let’s start with today first.
Solari started things off positively with a 0-4 win over Melilla in the start of the Copa del Rey. Some people might think that’s not a very big deal, but we scored as many goals in that one game as we had in the eight games prior. Let that sink in. Against teams like Plzen, Moscow, Alaves, and Levante. Just saying. It was nice to see a high scoreline and I don’t care if it was against a freaking YMCA team. It is good for morale and I hope it carries into the game today. Fingers crossed - HALA MADRID!
