Atletico Madrid vs Valladolid
Spain – La Liga
Date: Saturday, 27th April 2019
Kick-off at 15.15 UK/ 16.15 CET
Venue: Wanda Metropolitano (Madrid).
Atleti is determined to make Barca’s title bid as hard as they can. The challenge might not go strong for long, but Diego Simeone and his men have nothing left to fight for, and the warriors will go after the toppers with all their might. Barca needs three more points from the next four games, but they do have additional responsibilities of the Champions League and the Copa del Rey.
Valladolid finally managed to climb above the relegation line, thanks to Girona’s losing run. The danger is still not averted though. The team has a surplus of just a single point, and Girona is a strong team going through a rough patch. Things could change any moment in the next four match-days.

Atletico Madrid vs Valladolid Prediction
Atleti is a major contender to finish runner-up in the league, whereas Valladolid has a high probability of getting relegated. On top of that, Atleti has the home advantage. Moreover, title-hopeful Barca has their Champions League game against Liverpool in the mid-week, and as a result, would be lining up without several starters. Atleti would consider this as an opportunity to cut Barca’s lead at the top.
Going on, Madrid won the last seven h2h games in a row, and three of the last four saw them keep a clean sheet as well. At this venue, Atleti won every single league game bar one against this opponent.
Moreover, Madrid won their last six home-ties in a row, whereas Real was winless in nine of their last ten away ties. Finally, Atleti scored two or more goals in the last seven h2h games, and in seven of the last ten h2h encounters at home.
Expect a usual, win with a clean sheet for the hosts this weekend.
