Valladolid needs a miracle
Stop depending on himself and will face Real Sociedad and Atlético de Madrid
Not even San Pedro Regalado, patron of Valladolid, could do anything on the day of all Valladolid to help Real Valladolid. Surely he tried, but not even the Virgin of Fatima would remedy the infinite ills of the Pucela. The numbers it presents are as terrible as the sensations: He no longer depends on himself, closes the season against Real Sociedad and Atlético de Madrid and signs a victory in the last 19 games, the equivalent of one round of the competition. In fact, he is at serious risk of finishing the course as the bottom of the First Division, a position from which he is only one point after the draw against Eibar.
The substitution of Lucas Olaza was one of the news that Sergio González left on 11 against Villarreal. The club made a great effort to recruit the Uruguayan in the winter transfer market and did not play a minute in the most important game of the entire season. The coach, who did not refer to any injury or discomfort to the left back in his press conference, opted for a Nacho Martínez who had been well below his best version this season. In fact, he was the player who made the most serious mistake in Gerard Moreno’s goal.
With 31 points, Real Valladolid will play next Sunday’s match against Real Sociedad occupying a relegation position to Second Division and could mathematically go down to Second before the final matchday, in which they will host an Atlético de Madrid who could play the LaLiga Santander title at the José Zorrilla Stadium.
