Real Madrid took over the Spanish championship race after turning to an underutilized defender on Sunday for a 1-0 win at Valladolid.
Valladolid’s defense tried to clear a constant volley of flanks from the guests into the penalty area until Toni Kroos finally met goal scorer Nacho Fernández in the 78th minute.
Zinedine Zidane’s side advanced three points ahead of Barcelona – a day after the defending champions lost 2-0 at Valencia.
“We knew it was going to be another tough game,” said Zidane. “They only lost once at home. They are a very competitive team and those are three important points. “
Madrid not only took advantage of the Barcelona defeat, but also saw Atlético Madrid stumble again and fall further behind.
Atlético were drawn 0-0 at home against relegation-threatened Leganés and extended their winning streak to four games in all competitions.
Getafe overtook Atlético to finish fourth – last in the Champions League – after beating Real Betis 1-0 at home with a late penalty.
Madrid host Atlético next weekend.
