Real Valladolid hosts Real Madrid in a game from La Liga’s 15th round. Let’s take a look at what’s happening with these two teams in our sure win football prediction today.
Real Valladolid are doing okay since the start of the season. They are currently 12th in the standings with 17 points won. Their record shows 5 wins, 2 draws and 7 losses so far. The most important thing is that Valladolid are away from the relegation zone, but not away enough to consider themselves safe.
Pacheta’s team actually won three of its last five matches in the league which is a good sign. They also progressed for Copa del Rey which is telling us that this team is in a decent shape. The 33-years old veteran Sergio Leon has scored five La Liga goals since the start of the campaign while Roque Mesa and Monchu are making important contributions in midfield.
Real Madrid have some catching up to do. Los Blancos are second in the standings, but just two points behind the leader Barcelona. For them this is a chance to keep pressure the Catalans and eventually climb to top.
The Ballon d’Or winner Karim Benzema could be in line to face Valladolid. The French super star missed the World Cup because of an injury, but his recovery is going well. Meanwhile key players such as Luka Modric, Eder Militao, Vinicius Jr. and Aurelien Tchouameni will return to the squad after playing at the World Cup.
Vinicius remains Real Madrid’s top scorer in the league. So far he has scored 6 goals in the competition while Benzema is following with 5. Both of them are more than important for Madrid since the beginning of the season.
