Real Madrid are back in La Liga action on Wednesday night, as they host Real Valladolid, looking to carry on the momentum from a good win over Real Betis in their last game.

After Federico Valverde gave them the lead in that game, Real Madrid went 2-1 down before the break. But after half-time, Zinedine Zidane's side showed great character to turn the scoreline around, winning the game 3-2 thanks to an 82nd-minute Sergio Ramos penalty.

They now host Real Valladolid, who are winless in their opening three La LIga games of the season, having picked up just two draws so far.
