Atletico Madrid vs Real Valladolid Match Preview
Atletico Madrid overcame a tricky test to keep La Liga title race alive in midweek and another home win is expected here, leaving Barcelona still with some work to do.
Diego Simeone’s side have no margin for error and are running out of matches to bridge their nine-point deficit to the reigning Spanish champions.
Even if Atletico beat relegation-threatened Valladolid, Barcelona can still wrap up the crown with a victory at home to Levante on Saturday evening.
On Wednesday, we predicted Atletico would drop points at home to Valencia but they triumphed 3-2 with an 81st-minute winner from Angel Correa – rewarding our 9/2 anytime goalscorer tip on the Argentine striker!
Valladolid, meanwhile, enjoyed a timely success the previous night, 1-0 at home to Girona with a goal from Michel that leapfrogged them over their opponents and out of the relegation zone – while the three clubs above them are also still in the thick of the survival fight.
With Atletico having the best home defensive record in the Primera Division, we fully expect them to win this match to nil and in comfortable style to ensure Barcelona have to secure the title on the pitch rather than have it handed to them.
