With ten games left in La Liga this season, Barcelona remain in a position to challenge for the league title. Ronald Koeman’s side will be looking to continue their excellent run of form and win for a sixth straight game against Real Valladolid this weekend.
La Liga Preview
There is still a chance that this season could be a memorable one for Barcelona. Despite being knocked out of the Champions League, Koeman’s side could still end the season winning a domestic double this term. The La Liga title will be the one that Barcelona will be most keen to get their hands on. They are improving with every passing week, and the Dutch coach deserves his share of the credit for that. The switch in formation has had huge rewards for Barcelona, as they have won their last five in La Liga, and that has seen them close to within four points of Atletico. Real Madrid are a further two points back in third position. Barcelona’s recent form could be the biggest indicator that they are the side most likely to challenge for the league title this season, as they haven’t looked like dropping points in recent games. If they can maintain that, then the La Liga title race will be taken to the wire.
Real Valladolid will be coming into this game against Barcelona in good confidence, as they haven’t been beaten in four league games. They have drawn three of those fixtures, while they also picked up a fifth win of the campaign against Getafe. The draw against Sevilla before the break in play was an excellent result, and an illustration that they can cause the most talented sides in the division problems. The point also means that Valladolid are now four points above the drop zone, but they will be aware that there is still a job to be done.
Barcelona vs Real Valladolid Head To Head
Valladolid have beaten Barcelona in La Liga just once. That win came back in March 2014. Since then, Barcelona have won the last five La Liga fixtures between the sides. The Catalonian giants have kept clean sheets in their last two victories.
Barcelona vs Real Valladolid Prediction
Valladolid come to the Nou Camp in good form, but it will be hard to see them walking away with anything from the game this weekend. Barcelona have been excellent over their last five games, and we expect them to claim a sixth straight win against Valladolid.
