Real Madrid could have conceded a goal against Real Valladolid if it weren’t for the excellence of Thibaut Courtois in goal. He made some important saves. Up front, Karim Benzema returned with a brace.
However, Eduardo Camavinga is the unsung hero. He had an impressive performance when he made the difference at the other end of the pitch and helped Real win 3 points.
Camavinga came in for Dani Ceballos, and the youngster brought his energy into the game, something Real Madrid desperately needed when they were so sluggish most of the time.
Finally, the opening goal came in the 83rd minute from the penalty spot, when Karim Benzema made no mistake despite his lackluster performance before.
And after that, Camavinga makes a powerful dribble on the left flank before making a beautiful assist to help the reigning Golden Ball score a double, sealing the victory.
After a brilliant debut season at the Bernabeu, it is expected that Camavinga will play a more important role.
So far, that hasn’t happened yet. However, the French player still has a bright future ahead of him.
