Scores in win Valverde scored one goal on his only shot and won two-of-two tackles during 69 minutes of Saturday's 3-1 win over Barcelona.
Impact Valverde tends to do most of his work defensively, but he's still an exceptionally talented player and has looked in good attacking form over his last two matches. After a late goal was ruled out in the UCL loss to Shakhtar, there was no doubt about this strike for Valverde, who started the match instead of Luka Modric. Given how well Valverde has played, a more regular rotation may be introduced to the midfield for Madrid in the coming weeks. Up next is a UCL match at Borussia Monchengladbach.
