Casemiro heads Actual Madrid into lead vs Vallodolid
Real Madrid found the breakthrough against Real Vallodolid through the head of Casemiro.
Los Blancos looked down and out to hold onto the title, but with city rivals Atletico taking just one point off their last six after losing 2-0 at home to Levante on Saturday, they have both Real Madrid as well as given Barcelona a way back into the title fight.
However, what both sides still need to do is earn points. While Real Vallodolid successfully frustrated Zinedine Zidane’s men for an hour tonight, Casemiro was finally able to break the impasse and drive home on a beautiful delivery from Toni Kross.
