Real Madrid vs. Valladolid: Where to Watch La Liga, TV Channel, Live Stream, Team News and Odds

After a tumultuous summer, Real Madrid got the league campaign off to a perfect start with a convincing away win in Vigo.

Toni Kroos scored a thunderbolt as the 13-time European Cup winners beat Celta Vigo 3-1 last week, despite having Ballon d'Or winner Luka Modric sent off.

Karim Benzema put Real in front in the first half, before Kroos and Lucas Vazquez got on the scoresheet in the second.

The German's goal was the pick of the crop, a long-range effort that nestled in the top corner shortly after Real had been reduced to 10 men.

With Eden Hazard, the biggest signing of a summer spending spree that exceeded $340 million, out because of a hamstring injury, Zinedine Zidane turned to Gareth Bale.

The Welshman was brought it in from the cold after Zidane spent the summer trying to offload him—and did not disappoint.

Next up for Real Madrid is a first game on home soil, as Valladolid travel to the Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday.

Having flirted with relegation last season, Valladolid got its campaign off to a flier, winning 2-1 in Seville against Real Betis.

Here's everything you need to know ahead of Saturday.

Team news

Two of Real Madrid's big summer signings—Eden Hazard and Rodrygo—will be unavailable on Saturday because of hamstring injuries.

The Belgian is expected to return in mid-September, while Rodrygo should be available early next month.

Brahim Diaz and Marco Asensio will also be out, with the former recovering from a hip injury while the latter will be sidelined for almost the entire season after rupturing his ACL against Arsenal in preseason.

Celta's only injury doubt is defensive midfielder Luismi, who is nursing an ankle issue.


According to Oddschecker, Real is a 1/5 favorite (-500 in moneyline terms), while the draw is at 6/1 and Valladolid is a 12/1 outsider.
