Real Valladolid Preview – Could Valladolid spring a huge surprise and get a first win in seven matches?

Real Valladolid are always going to be one of those teams involved at the bottom of the table and it’s no different this season. The previous two campaigns have seen Valladolid finish six points and four points above the bottom three but the situation looks to be more critical this time around. Now 23 matches in, they are third bottom of the table but it is a very crowded section of La Liga.

Valladolid are level one points with Eibar who sit directly above them whilst only four points adrift of 12th placed Osasuna. So there is all to play for, however Sergio’s men will have to improve their recent form.


Our betting prediction:
2-1 Real Madrid Correct Score

Bet at Bet365

(odds taken 2000 GMT, Friday 19 February)
They come into this game having not won any of their last six in all competitions. Their only win in La Liga was on the 2nd of January (1-0 away to Getafe) and Valladolid have taken only one point from their last four home matches in the league. Their last home win was back in the middle of December when defeating Osasuna 3-2.
Scoring goals  is not an issue for Valladolid, though, their tally of 22 goals is the most of any of the bottom seven teams which with respects to their position is a good haul.

Real Madrid Preview – Will the champions find another three points to keep the pressure on the current leaders?

Saturday’s trip to Valladolid marks the start of a hugely important few weeks of Real Madrid’s season. The first leg of their last-16 tie against Atalanta comes next before the derby against Altetico. These matches will have a huge bearing on the success Zinedine Zidane and his players will achieve this campaign. Real come into this match six points behind their city rivals and having played a game more.

It’s just one loss in their last 13 league games – a run which has seen them win 10. If they can maintain that sort of run between now and the end of the season then they do have a chance of retaining their title.

How damaging the 2-1 loss at home to Levante at the end of January will be to Real’s title chances remains to be seen but it’s the sort of inconsistency and surprise result which blighted the earlier part of the season.

Of course, success at Real is also judged in European terms so the tie with Atalanta could propel them into the quarter finals and from there a chance of winning another Champions League. At this stage though, you would doubt this current group of players are capable of that.

Real Valladolid vs Real Madrid Betting Advice

You sense that if the visitors do not win here and Atletico move further clear this weekend then the title could well be out Real’s reach. Valladolid will make things difficult for their opponents but it’s not a fixture they have done well in. Real Madrid have won 10 of the last 11 against Valladolid. Understandably so considering the respective resources.

It was a narrow 1-0 win for Zidane’s men when the teams met earlier in the season.


Key Facts – Real Valladolid vs Real Madrid Betting Tip

  • Valladolid have taken just one point from their last four home games in La Liga
  • Real are looking to win their fifth win in six games to stay at most six points behind Atletico
  • Real Madrid dominate this fixture and are looking for an 11th win in the last 12 meetings


I’ve alluded to Valladolid’s decent strike rate and fancy them to trouble Real. The visitors have kept just two clean sheets in their last nine away games (both teams scoring in all seven) whilst Sergio’s men have scored in five of their last seven at home. Take both teams to score here.
