Valladolid vs Atletico Madrid
Spain – La Liga
Date: Saturday, 22 May 2021
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET,
Venue: Estadio Jose Zorrilla (Valladolid).
With one of this season’s final happening at Alfredo de Stefano, Estadio Jose Zorrilla will witness yet another one in the clash between Valladolid and Atletico Madrid on Saturday. Since both teams have their own stakes in the game, expect another exciting encounter in La Liga in the weekend.
Another three points will pull Valladolid out of the relegation zone given any of the two teams above them falter in their respective fixtures. However, the host has been winless for the past ten clashes in the campaign, following a 4-1 loss on the road against Sociedad last time out in their schedule.
Unbeaten in their last four matches in the league, Atletico Madrid still has their doubts as they have dropped points twice in the last five matches. Still, they will visit on the back of a 2-1 win at home against the likes of Osasuna in the previous encounter.

Valladolid vs Atletico Madrid Prediction
There is no doubt that the match is sizing to be an away win in full-time until Valladolid pulls something magnificent out of the hat on Saturday. But with their recent form in the campaign, that seems not so probable against a team fighting for the title this season.
Besides, Atletico Madrid is on a winning streak in the campaign. And Diego Simeone’s men show better squad strength than the relegation-prone side on the table. Thus, the away win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters in the clash.
Furthermore, the match is likely to end as a high-scoring affair fit for the final. The visitor has a decent scoring average with Luis Suarez leading the attack in the league this term. As such, the tip for over 2.5 goals will probably be a suitable option to yield decent returns in the encounter.
