Real Valladolid get punished for wasting opportunities against Real Madrid

Real Madrid came from behind to beat Real Valladolid after wasting all opportunities and deprived by VAR twice in La Liga, although the result is unlikely to relieve the pressure on head coach Santiago Solari.

Valladolid were unfortunate not to be well clear as Ruben Alcaraz missed a penalty and Sergi Guardiola had two goals ruled out before Anuar’s opener.

Raphael Varane equalised from close range and Karim Benzema then scored twice, from a penalty and a header.

Casemiro was sent off for two yellows before Luka Modric added a fourth.

Third-placed Real, who have only won two of their past six games, are 12 points behind leaders and champions Barcelona.

Solari’s side were knocked out out of the Champions League, the tournament they had won for three consecutive years, after losing 4-1 at home to Ajax on Tuesday – their fourth consecutive home defeat.
