Real Valladolid vs Atlético Madrid match preview

Can Real Valladolid edge just a little bit closer to safety?

On Thursday night, Blanquivioletas were heartbreakingly beaten by Valencia at Mestalla, taking the lead through Cyle Larin, only for los Che to win it with a 93rd minute screamer.

Before this, Valladolid were unbeaten in three, playing out a thrilling 3-3 draw with Mallorca, before back-to-back wins over Villarreal and Girona.

So, despite tasting his first La Liga defeat in mid-week, Paulo Pezzolano’s team are 14th, four points clear of danger, knowing one more win would pretty much secure safety.

Atlético Madrid meanwhile are hoping to snatch second place, thereby finishing above Real Madrid, with the gap back down to two points.

On Wednesday night, donning a lovely 120 year anniversary kit, los Colchoneros came from a goal down to beat Mallorca 3-1 at Cívitas Metropolitano.

Diego Simeone’s side have now won 12 of their last 17 outings, their only defeats in this time both coming at the hands of run-away league-leaders Barcelona.

The reverse fixture in January ended 3-0 to Atleti, with a similar scoreline likely to be on the cards at Estadio José Zorrilla.
