Real Valladolid vs Atletico Madrid Prediction: La Liga Match

It has been a fine run of form for Real Valladolid, and they will be looking to maintain that sequence this weekend when they clash with Atletico Madrid. However, the visitors will be looking for a win, which could see them overtake Real Madrid in the standings.

La Liga Preview 

Atletico Madrid still has a lot to play for in La Liga this term, as they could yet end the campaign above their city rivals. They come into this showdown on Sunday sitting third in the standings, but they could move above Real Madrid if results go in their favour this weekend. Atletico has been in fine recent form, as they have landed victories in four of their previous five matches. 

They showed excellent character in their previous match, as they returned to winning ways after a recent loss. Atletico were in strong form on Wednesday evening, as they picked up a fine 3-1 home win over Mallorca. They fell behind in that fixture, but goals from Rodrigo De Paul, Alvaro Morata, and Yannick Carrasco sealed maximum points.

There will be pressure on the hosts this weekend, as they aren’t yet safe from the threat of relegation this season. They come into this fixture sitting 14th in the table, but they are just five points clear of the bottom three places in the La Liga standings. But, they have gone on a three-game unbeaten run over recent weeks. 

Playing at home has suited Valladolid throughout this season, as six of their nine wins to this point have been recorded in front of their own fans. They have also scored more goals in home fixtures, and have allowed 20 fewer goals in their matches played at Jose Zorrilla. 

Real Valladolid vs Atletico Madrid Head to Head 

Atletico Madrid has an excellent record in this fixture, as they have won 12 of the previous 14 meetings between the sides across all competitions. Over the same period, Valladolid has recorded just one win. Atletico has also won each of their previous four against their rivals this weekend, including a 3-0 win earlier this season.

Real Valladolid vs Atletico Madrid Prediction 

This remains an interesting fixture despite Atletico’s dominant record overall. But, their advantage in the head-to-head is extremely hard to overlook this weekend. Therefore, we will be siding with the away side picking up the points by a 2-0 scoreline.
