Alaves hope to extend deal for Real Madrid midfielder Marcos Llorente
Feb 24 2017
Real Madrid's hopes of extending their lead at the top of the Spanish Liga were hit by a 2-1 defeat at Valencia tonight.
The Frenchman hobbled out of the game in the 73rd minute and was replaced by Nacho Fernandez, and it is thought that his amount of football since the turn of the year has contributed to the injury.
Madrid travel to Valencia in La Liga on Wednesday for one of their two games in hand on title rivals Barcelona and Sevilla.
Real, who have won only one of their last six away games, also face a tricky trip to Villarreal on Sunday. But we made mistakes at the back, they had players between the lines all the time, and they scored two goals.
Although Real Madrid took the larger share of possession in the first half, the hosts were formidable in defense with goalkeeper Diego Alves making spectacular saves. We moved the ball well, played our game and created chances to score. We had chances to do that, but we lacked many things today.
"We got off poorly and it's our own fault", he said.
Real left El Madrigal empty-handed last season, while the Yellow Submarine held out for a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture in September. Isco's ability to score and pass the ball makes him the flawless complement for the two England national team players. A loss would all but rule either side out of the title race, proving just how important this encounter is.
Cristiano Ronaldo, playing his 700th club career game, had a shot that skidded wide and the Portuguese's cross-shot found James Rodriguez at the back post but it was blocked by former Barcelona striker Munir.
Real Madrid have scored more headed goals than any other team in Europe's top five leagues this season (15).
