Real Madrid 4-3 Real Valladolid: Rating the Players

The self-styled "Special One" looks to be nearing the end of his time at the Santiago Bernabeu.

As Jose Mourinho's tenure as Real Madrid manager draws to a close, with his preferred destination thought to be England, it was tempting to predict this as a stilted affair. 

Both teams are pretty much where they will be at the end of the season—Madrid trailing Barca in second place, while Valledolid sit safe in mid-table—so it seemed that perhaps one or two goals were on the cards.

Thankfully, it wasn't so. It was a seven-goal thriller at the Bernabeu which included Cristiano Ronaldo's 198th and 199th goals since joining Real Madrid. Valladolid put up a good fight, but once Madrid entered their second gear it was fairly routine, at least until Valladolid's late third goal which set up a last-minute scramble.

This is how the players got on.
