Real Valladolid vs Atletico Madrid Betting Tips

Real Valladolid are hosting Atletico Madrid in Jose Zorilla Stadium in Valladolid on the 22nd of May 2021 Saturday at 21:30 IST. Atletico Madrid after the hard-fought win against Osasuna in the last game will hope to win again and win the La Liga this year while Real Valladolid would require a win plus some other results to go their way to move out of relegation. It’s everything to play for both even in the last league game. 

Real Valladolid Form & Team News

Real Valladolid are the 19th placed team in the La Liga this season with just 31 points secured from the 37 total matches played so far. They have won just five games which is the least among all the teams in the La Liga this season. They have also drawn the most number of games for any team in the league so far with 16 draws. At home, they have a dismal record with three wins coming from 18 games played. They have the second-joint worst goal difference too. Real Valladolid are presently in danger of relegation from the top-tier league. They given for a win on Saturday against the fancied Atletico Madrid would still require Huesca and Elche to lose their respective games in order to move out of the relegation zone. So it’s still everything to play for even for the bottom-placed teams in La Liga.

Sergi Guardiola, Jawad El Yamiq, Fabien Orellana and Raul Garcia are the players who might miss out the last game of the team owing to either injuries/disciplinary actions. Manager Sergio would do everything possible to stop the team from getting relegated to the second tier league next season. Weissman and Orellana are the two bright spots coming out from a rather ordinary season for Valladolid with six goals each. Plano has the best goal+assists ratio among all the Valladolid players with nine contributions coming from the Spaniard.

Atletico Madrid Form & Team News

Atletico Madrid are the number One placed team in the La Liga presently as it has been for most of the season. They have a two-point lead over second-placed Real Madrid with 81 points from 37 matches. They have won as many as 25 games in the process losing only on four occasions in that. They have also conceded the least number of goals for any team in La Liga this season just giving away 24 goals. Simeone’s men were favourites to win the title for the most part of the season and they had a big lead of points from the other teams. They have managed to drop a few crucial points in between which has helped the cause of some other teams to really have a say from here on and also potentially topple the table-toppers from that position. But now it’s down to just two teams to win the title from here on. Atletico Madrid even for a draw in the last game and a win for Real Madrid would still see Real retaining the title. So it’s down to just one equation for Simeone’s men and that is a win for them to win the title.

Thomas Lemar is the only player missing out from the Atletico Madrid squad for the crucial Barca game away. Diego Simeone is only just a little steps away from winning the league which by the context of the season has looked more or less Atletico’s from start. They need to capitalise on this game and try to win which they probably should, they are surely going to win the La Liga this year. Former Barca icon Luiz Suarez has come in like a storm and performed to his fullest in the Atletico squad. Carrasco and Oblak have also shown the mettle to perform in these conditions and this has probably made them a side to beat this season.
