Valladolid – Atletico Madrid Preview

  • There’s plenty at stake at both ends in this one! For Valladolid, they need a win against their title-chasing visitors, and defeats for Huesca and Elche – or a draw for the latter – if they’re to pull off a miraculous La Liga (LL) escape. The prospects look slim though based on their current form of no win in 11 league matches (D6, L5). The final three of which ended in defeat by a margin of 2+ goals.
  • A positive for the hosts is that they do tend to find the back of the net regularly at home, scoring in five of their previous six games (W1, D3, L2). However, their issues lie in that only one side has conceded more home goals than they have (1.56 per game) this season. A high proportion of those goals (64.29%) arrived after HT.
  • The task is simple for Atlético Madrid, win here and they secure their first LL crown for seven years! But anything less opens the door for neighbours Real Madrid who hold the H2H advantage in the event of tied points. They should feel confident after five wins in their previous seven LL games (D1, L1), yet their fans aren’t likely to relax with more late drama potentially on the horizon, especially as there’s been seven goals after the 75th minute across Atlético’s last six matches.
  • Another nervy facet for the visitors is that they have drawn three of their seven away games vs sides currently 13th or below (W4). Furthermore, the four victories they did manage went right to the wire and were ultimately settled by a one-goal margin.
  • Players to watch: Whilst goals have been in short supply, Shon Weissman has two after the 60th minute across his last five Valladolid appearances. Atlético’s Marcos Llorente scored in the last H2H, and also netted three across his previous seven appearances. Three of those four combined goals arrived after HT.
  • Hot stat: Atlético are the only LL side yet to lose after scoring first this season (W21, D2).
