Following on from weeks off as a result of the winter break, Spain’s La Liga will return this weekend as fans await what should be a full set of entertaining fixtures. The extended stay away from the top flight should do all twenty clubs the world of good and today, we’re going to take a look at what should be a pretty enticing affair between two of the ‘Real’ clubs – Valladolid and Madrid, set to go down on Friday evening.

Real Valladolid

Real Valladolid have been described as something of a yo-yo team in the past and after bouncing back up to the top flight once again last season, they’re doing a solid job of cementing their stay – prior to the break, that is. They’re starting to possess the kind of gungho attitude that should bode well for them against most of their rivals which, in turn, means they should fancy themselves to cause a few upsets or two throughout the campaign.

Real Madrid

Real Madrid are the reigning kings of both Spanish and European football which is hardly a surprise, given that the main man Carlo is back in charge. We know he’s a serial winner and we know that, as it stands, another positive season likely awaits. However, cautioning against complacency is going to be vital if this historic club is going to avoid any setbacks, especially with their bitter rivals breathing down their neck.

Factors to Consider

  • Madrid are 2nd in La Liga whereas Valladolid are 12th.
  • Valladolid have won four and lost two of their last six games.
  • Madrid have won three, drawn one and lost two of their last six games.
  • Valladolid have scored 10 goals and conceded seven in their last six games.
  • Madrid have scored 15 goals and conceded 10 in their last six games.


Valladolid should be feeling confident that they can press Madrid back and really cause them problems, but for whatever reason, we just don’t think they’re going to put their foot on the gas as much as they should. Real (the visitors) have the ability to suppress teams and take away their confidence, and we anticipate that will lead to a narrow – yet incredibly value – 2-1 win for Ancelotti’s men upon their La Liga return.

Prediction: Real Madrid win
