EReal Valladolid shrugged off competitive rust with their first friendly, at Las Salinas and against Tordesillas. The high temperatures took their toll on both teams’ players and spoiled a game that is already a classic of Pucelana’s summer preparation.
With a starting XI that mixed the headlines in the rising project to LaLiga Santander and local players, the first part was marked by sun and heat that gradually diminished in intensity over the minutes, but which bordered on the unbearable for footballers. Pucela’s initial tenure was priceless and Tordesillas settled into an area where they grew very strong in the final months of last season, in which they came close to promotion to the second federation.
The property of Asenjo, who arrived this week at Real Valladolid, was the most striking. The Palencia man, who didn’t have any worthwhile intervention, saw how the locals, especially Federico, sent a ball over his crossbar midway through the first half. A scare that was cheered on by local fans in Las Salinas. Real Valladolid left their football in the boots of Aguado, Roque Mesa and Ivi Sánchez, with Weissman fueling and youngsters Garriel and Chuky multiplying their enthusiasm. Luis Prez brought depth, constantly slowed down by mistakes. Hugo Vallejo returned to play with the first team several months later.
The second half left a rain of changes and a Real Valladolid who overwhelmed Carolo’s box, but not his goalkeeper. Clear chances were conspicuous by their absence and only Waldo really tested Torde’s goalkeeper, who with a good stretch sent the ball for a corner. Monchu warned from a free kick, with Olaza and Fresneda climbing from the wings. It wasn’t until minute 77 that a vindictive Sekou, just after the hydration break and having been on the pitch for two minutes, beat Farolo from the bottom to give Real Valladolid victory in the match which served to cut the ribbon. 2022/2023. The duel was dying and the players too, but there was time for a second goal, from Kike Pérez, after a pass from Anuar and a nice and precise definition from another of the players called to pack their bags in this market summer at Real Valladolid. El Torde, with time running out, sent a penalty on Masip’s goal.
Real Valladolid’s pre-season will now travel to Salamanca, with the Friday 22 game against Unionistas. Burgos, Ponferradina and Stade Brest will be the next rivals of a preparation which has only two appointments left. One of them will be the one corresponding to the Trophy of the City of Valladolid. The blanquivioleta club tries to make Lazio its rival in Zorrilla.
