Competition: La Liga
Market: Luis Suarez to score anytime
Odds: 4/6 @ 888sport
Knowing that they can wrap up the La Liga title on Saturday evening, Atletico Madrid will face off against Real Valladolid at the José Zorrilla.
Starting with the hosts, putting on what was a real horror show on their travels last weekend, Real Valladolid know that they’re on the verge of being hit with a Segunda return. Sat two points adrift of safety and seeking a minor miracle if they’re to somehow avoid the drop, Sergio González’s side were last seen getting hit with a shocking 4-1 drumming away at Real Sociedad. Only continuing to show a string of issues throughout the 2020/21 campaign, Pucelanos have lost each of their last three La Liga contests on the spin. Losing those three fixtures by an aggregate score of 9-1, Valladolid have remarkably failed to win any of their last 11 straight top-flight matchups, a run that stems all the way back to March 6th. Even more concerning for Saturday’s hosts, they have landed just a single victory on home soil since opening 2021.
As for the visitors, managing to mount what was a stunning turnaround on the road last weekend, there is no doubt that the mood in Atletico Madrid’s camp should be at a real high. Snatching two late goals and coming from behind to grab a 2-1 victory away at Osasuna, Colchoneros find themselves within touching distance of lifting this year’s La Liga title. Holding a two-point buffer over their crosstown rivals, it is well worth keeping an eye out for leading marksman Luis Suarez this weekend. Only continuing to impress since shockingly making the move from Barcelona last summer, the 34-year-old has 20 top-flight goals to his name this season. Finding the net against Osasuna last time out, the one-time Liverpool striker should be looking to help wrap up Atletico’s 11th domestic title on Saturday.
Bet: Luis Suarez 4/6 to score anytime against Real Valladolid in Saturday’s La Liga showdown @ 888sport
