Three takeaways from Real Madrid’s 2-0 win vs. Real Valladolid

Even Real Madrid fans saw the amusing side to Toni Kroos' freakish statement after the 2-0 victory over Real Valladolid.

In case you didn't know.

.

Los Blancos needed two goals in the last 10 minutes from Vinicius Jr and Sergio Ramos to secure a 2-0 victory against Real Valladolid , their first win in the top flight for six matches.

Solari is now the interim manager at the Bernabeu after the sacking of Julen Lopetegui following their 5-1 humbling in last week's El Clasico.

It wasn't a classic Real Madrid performance, however Solari will be delighted with the result in his first game in charge.

Marco Asensio stood as the only bright spark amongst the starting trident with Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale failing to impress. -ND%40espn.com%7C5671d073e93d4439bed708d641b8c34c%7C56b731a8a2ac4c32bf6b616810e913c6%7C1%7C0%7C636768659205299326&sdata=LYWVJdzzgz13GCwy948JrHDqckAaPrGg%2FKF6uABFAKQ%3D&reserved=0" target="_blank">BeIN Sports. "And as captain I am proud that they fill my rucksack with stones and to have to pull from the front.

"My pride is what has got me where I am today, and beating all the records I have beaten".

Ramos also highlighted the team's reaction late on, when they were struggling: "When things don't go you have to stay calm". We understand how the fans feel.

The game certainly showed Solari has plenty of work to do with his new side should they want to get back to their form of recent seasons, but he more than anyone will be relieved about the result.

The Brazilian star scored the first of Madrid's two goals on Saturday, as the Spanish giants look to rescue their season. Will that lead to fans rushing around a urinal to see a replay while someone is still going about their business?

Oddly, Real Madrid hadn't scored two league goals in a game since September 1 and now, with the ship stabilised, Solari can turn his attention to the Champions League and the hard weeks that lie ahead.
