Atletico Madrid to Win at Half Time and Full Time

Chances for Valladolid to stay up would be slim even if they weren’t playing Atletico Madrid, but we don’t see how Atletico can fail to take care of business in this game and win the Spanish title. They have been on top of the standings for most of the season and now they only need to beat Valladolid to claim the crown – which is something they managed to do in four of their last five meetings.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

While it’s clear that Atletico Madrid is the best defensive team in the league and most of their games end with fewer than three goals, our prediction for this match is over 2.5 total goals. The reason for this lies in the fact that Valladolid needs the win to even have a chance to stay in La Liga, so they will have to play offensively. This should open the game up and we should see plenty of goals, probably in both nets as well.

Luis Suarez to Score at Any Time

It’s pretty obvious that the crucial signing for Atletico Madrid has been the addition of the Uruguayan legend. Luis Suarez has been amazing the entire season and he is the team’s top goalscorer in the league with 20 goals. He also scored the winner in the previous round that kept Atletico on top, so he is our top pick for netting a goal against Valladolid as well.

Valladolid vs Atletico Madrid preview: One last step for the guests to win the title

This is a huge game for both teams since Atletico needs to win to secure the title, while Valladolid has to win and hope for other results to go their way in order to avoid relegation. So, let’s check these teams out in more detail.

Valladolid

After winning just once in their last 19 games, Valladolid is looking at participation in the Spanish Segunda next season. They still have a chance to stay up though, but they have to beat Atletico Madrid and hope that Huesca and Elche both lose their final matches of the season. So, that chance is really not big, but Valladolid will certainly give all they have to at least do their part of the job.  Kodro, Orellana, Garcia, and Jimenez are all out due to injuries.

Atletico Madrid

One last step remains for Atletico Madrid and they will be crowned champions of Spain for the first time since 2014. That last step is Valladolid, who is still clinging to hope of staying in the league despite slim chances of doing so. In any case, Atletico Madrid is in good form since they’ve won five of their last eight matches in the league. Diego Simeone will also have almost all players at his disposal for this final game, with the exception of Thomas Lemar.
