With ten gameweeks remaining in the La Liga schedule, the title is pretty much done and dusted. Barcelona have a 13-point lead on top of the table, with little to no scope of dropping it.

13 points behind, Real Madrid will be hoping to cement the runners up spot across the next games, especially with Atletico Madrid just two points behind them.

Tomorrow, Madrid will have a chance to increase the lead to five points against Atletico, albeit temporarily, when they travel to Cadiz. With one eye on the return leg against Chelsea, Carlo Ancelotti has decided to rest a few players for tomorrow.

The entirety of the defence, except Ferland Mendy, is fit and in contention to travel, including David Alaba, who was suffering with injury problems last month.

Toni Kroos started as the pivot over Aurelien Tchouameni against Chelsea, but picked up some muscle discomfort in training, and therefore, has been rested for the Cadiz clash.

Vinicius Jr was the official man of the match in the UCL for his two assists, and has been given tomorrow off to keep him fresh to face Chelsea again.

    I’m so glad that wasteful Vinicius is benched this time around. He’s too selfish and stylist for comfort. He unnecessarily holds on to the ball until he is dispossessed of it most times. Very frustrating. He hardly passes the ball to other players even when these players are better positioned to score. He is a million miles away from Messi who is always passing the ball when he’s not scoring. Vinicius also lacks force in his legs to score even when he’s face to face with a goalkeeper. In addition to being too irritable and quarrelsome on the pitch, Vinicius now feels he’s indispensable and is allowed to always start games by a coach who has overrated him, while stupidly leaving an ace scorer like Asensio on the bench for most of the time, only to have Asensio score when he comes into the game. That coach himself needs to go at the end of the season as he is lacking in creativity these days and no longer good at setting up the team.

Real Madrid out-of-favour defender now unlikely to leave the club

Real Madrid missed out on the signing of Leny Yoro after deciding not to match Manchester United’s offer for the 18-year-old defender.

With the French prodigy now on his way to the Premier League, Los Blancos are assessing their options before deciding whether to sign a new centre-back or not.

As things stand, the reigning champions of Spain and Europe seem to be leaning towards relying on their existing options rather than going into the market.

Jesus Vallejo unlikely to leave

As such, MARCA reports that the likelihood of Jesus Vallejo leaving the club have now significantly reduced.

Indeed, the 27-year-old out-of-favour defender now appears more and more likely to continue at Real Madrid beyond this summer.

Vallejo returned to the Santiago Bernabeu after finishing his loan stint at Granada during which he hardly played due to injury and fitness woes.

As such, reports suggested that Carlo Ancelotti & co. were not planning on counting on him next season, even though he was handed a new shirt number recently.

But with the Leny Yoro operation collapsing and Real Madrid not keen on recruiting anyone from the market at this point, the Spanish ace is now unlikely to leave the club.

With David Alaba still sidelined, Antonio Rudiger and Eder Militao will start the new season as the first-choice centre-back pairing and Vallejo will serve as the backup while Aurelien Tchouameni will also be an option.

Vallejo, for his part, wanted to stay put and see out his contract which expires in 2025. And, as things stand, it appears that the player will get his wish.
