Real Madrid – Valladolid Match Prediction | 18-08-2019

Santiago Solari got off to an expectedly victorious debut on the bench on Wednesday when Real Madrid stormed past third-division outfit Melilla 0-4 on the road. Karim Benzema led the line and he finally managed to score a goal. Three remaining goals came from Marco Asensio, Alvaro Odriozola and Cristo Gonzalez. The new manager sent out a mixed line-up on the pitch for the first leg of the Copa del Rey tie.

They need time to rebuild and slowly climb back to the top-most echelons of Europe. They are in a transition phase. The current situation simply translates to do not expect a huge win by the current European Champions. For sure we are not going to see the all-conquering Los Blancos this Sunday. But that does not mean they can afford one more loss.

Real Valladolid vs Real Madrid Match Prediction

Founded in 1928, Real Valladolid play their home matches at Jose Zorilla, the venue that has the capacity 26,512. Real Valladolid is a Spanish club based in Valladolid, the part of the autonomous community of Castille and Leon. La Pucela have yet to win the La Liga title, but it is important to note that they finished fourth at the end of the 1962/1963 season.

The club chiefs decided to send him on loan to Atletico Madrid, but seeing that Courtois impressed during his spell with the La Liga team, Jose Mourinho confirmed in June, 2014 that the Belgian goalkeeper would return to Chelsea for the 2014/2015 campaign. Thibaut Courtois helped Chelsea win the Premier League trophy in 2015, but the general impression is that he had performed much better while at Atletico Madrid. He won the La Liga title in the 2013/2014 season, while lifting the UEFA Europa League trophy in 2012.

They are a very organised team with the divisions second best defensive record so Los Blancos will have to work for their openings here. Had there not been a change in coach, theyd have fancied they might have got something the way Real have been playing. However a change at the top may bring a change in fortunes and Real Madrid should have the edge here but it could be tighter than many are expecting. Valladolid should not be underestimated.

Valladolid vs Real Madrid PREDICTION & BETTING TIPS - 10/03/2019

With Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale both firing blanks, Real Madrid might wish he was still on the pitch in the famous white shirts but there were finally positives for Real fans this week with another Brazilian striker, 18 year old Vincius Jnior impressing in the Copa del Rey. An interesting side-note here is the return of Ronaldo (the Brazilian one) to the Bernabeu. He is now the majority owner of Real Valladolid and so far he will be very pleased with his investment.

Away from the pressure-cooker of the Bernabeu, Real Madrids form is actually pretty good. At the other end, injuries may force Real Madrid into bringing Gareth Bale and Marco Asensio into the starting eleven and that may be no bad thing as theyve just not been clinical enough, with the likes of Vinicius and Lucas Vazquez starting. Theyve won 5 of their last 6 on the road in all competitions, with the exception being a draw at Camp Nou.

The team needs to show they can bounce back from one of the worst periods in recent history and try and salvage some positivity from it. They wont get close to being back in a title race, theyll still be 12 points out even with a win, but they can further solidify a spot in next years Champions League and move forward with a better attitude.

Real Valladolid vs Villarreal Predictions, H2H and Match Preview

Real Madrid will be aiming to bounce back from a heart-breaking loss to Barcelona in El Clasico when they take on Real Valladolid at Estadio Jose Zorilla on Matchday 27. The Brazilian rising star will surely pose a big threat for la Pucela defenders and we believe that he is going to help the capital club get back on course in La Liga. Vinicius produced a fine display in the 1-0 loss to Barca at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, but he was more than unfortunate not to find the net. Los Blancos suffered two defeats in previous three league fixtures, but they are definitely capable of beating the relegation-threatened side on Matchday 27. Real Madrid are eyeing their fifth consecutive win on the road in the Spanish elite division and seeing that Real Valladolid failed to score in four of their last five league matches, away win should be considered.

This last week has been the lowest point of the season, and thats already taking into account that this club has already had a managerial change this season. Depending on the lineup, this scoreline can obviously be more affected positively or negatively. Real need a win, not just to keep their lead in the top 4 safe, but also to lift their spirits a bit.

There are many teams in La Liga that are capable of causing this troubled Real Madrid side problems, but on the surface, Valladolid arent one of them. They lack both creativity and a genuine finisher so its no surprise to see them as the lowest scorers in the division, with just 0.77 goals per game and their season tally of 20 is five fewer than the next worst side. Therefore, Solaris defence should have a considerably quieter time here than they did against an impressive Ajax in midweek.

Valladolid vs Real Madrid H2H

Madrid will be highly motivated to pick up the spoils and return on the winning ways after a demolishing 5-1 defeat to bitter rivals Barcelona in El Clasico. However, the host may face huge problems against a super stern defensive line of Valladolids here. The visitors were super tough to break lately down as they shipped just one goal in last four league matches.
