Real Valladolid vs Real Madrid Match Preview
Arch-rivals Barcelona have finally bid goodbye to gaffer Ernesto Valverde, and their stagnancy seems to have come to an immediate end. New coach Quique Setien has begun on the perfect note, and once again the Barca outfit looked electric and creative on the pitch.
The La Liga will now no longer be a light task, and Zinedine Zidane and his boys will have to give all they have, to deliver the elusive league title.
However, Barcelona have a tough match-up coming up this game week against Valencia, and Real finally may have an opportunity to take the top spot for themselves.
But this game needs to be won first.
Real Valladolid vs Real Madrid Prediction
Real Valladolid were on the road the last match-day, and were held to a goalless draw by Osasuna. Meanwhile, Real Madrid had a tough game to wade through.
They had played hosts to Sevilla, and the closely-contested affair saw Zidane’s men register a narrow 2-1 win to post the three points on the board.
As things stand this Sunday, Real Madrid are the easily a shoe-in for the three points. Not only are they one of the best teams in Spain, but are considered to be the best in the world as well.
On the other hand, Valladolid had gained promotion to this top flight just a single season before, and they are still not equipped to take on the challenges of this superior league.
Moreover, in their last 23 fixtures, Valladolid have recorded a total of just six wins. And, two of these were in friendlies, one was in the Copa against a team from a lower division, one was against the 17th placed Mallorca, and one was against the dead-last placed Espanyol.
Only the remaining sixth victory could be considered to be of any quality, which was still against the 16th placed Eibar.
On the other hand, Real Madrid are on a four-match winning run, and an impressive 17-game unbeaten streak. In addition, they were also unbeaten in 29 of their last 31 fixtures, and are invincible in their last eight games on the road.
Of these eight, six were wins, and the team were also unbeaten in 14 of their former 16 road trips. The Royal Whites also scored two or more goals in 13 of their previous 20 overall match-ups, and in five of their last seven on the road as well.
In addition, the Madrid outfit are unbeaten against this opponent in the last 12 years, and have lost just twice at this venue in the past 22 years. Also, Zidane’s men had recorded 16 of the past 19 h2h wins, and at this stadium they had scored three or more goals in three of their last four visits.
Bringing all these factors into consideration, it’s deduced that Real Madrid are in line to keep their winning streak on with a convincing victory this Sunday.
