Valladolid vs Real Madrid Prediction & Match Preview

Valladolid vs Real Madrid
Spain – La Liga
Date: Saturday, 20 February 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Jose Zorrilla (Valladolid).

Real Madrid will be looking to build on a routine 2-0 win over Valencia when they take on Real Madrid in the La Liga round 24. 

Los Blancos are eyeing their fourth consecutive league win, and they need to keep on making progress if they are to melt Atletico Madrid’s advantage in the standings. 

Karim Benzema, who scored his 12th goal of the season at the weekend, will be the man to keep an eye on in the away team.

Sergio Ramos remains on the sidelines following the meniscus surgery, as well as Eden Hazard, Federico Valverde, Marcelo, Eder Militao, Alvaro Odriozola, and Dani Carvajal. 

La Pucela, on the other hand, are eyeing their first league win since January 2, 2021 when they defeated Getafe on the road, but given the importance of the match for the title-chasing side, away win should be considered. 

All Alcaraz, Fernandez, and Fede returns from suspensions for the hosts.

Team News:

Valladolid will be without the services of Pablo Hervias, Javi Sanchez, Ruben Garcia, Oscar Plano, Jawad El Yamiq and Maranhao this weekend through injury, while Lucas Olaza is suspended.

Head coach Sergio will have Fede, Joaquin Fernandez and Ruben Alcaraz available following suspensions of their own, though, with the trio all missing out against Eibar.

Sergi Guardiola could get the nod over Shon Weissman in the final third of the field, while Joaquin and Fede should both return to the starting XI for the clash with Madrid.

The visitors will again be without Marcelo, Eder Militao, Sergio Ramos, Alvaro Odriozola, Federico Valverde and Rodrygo Goes through injury for Saturday's fixture, while Dani Carvajal pulled up with a fresh issue against Valencia last time out and is facing another spell on the sidelines.

There are not expected to be many surprises in the Madrid XI, with Lucas Vazquez replacing Carvajal, while Nacho will continue at the heart of the defence alongside Raphael Varane.

Zidane is likely to stick with the same front three, meanwhile, with Vinicius Junior and Marco Asensio starting alongside Benzema as Eden Hazard is not yet fit to return.


Real Valladolid possible starting lineup:
Masip; Perez, Joaquin, Bruno, Nacho; Mesa, Fede; Villa, Perez, Rubio; Guardiola

Real Madrid possible starting lineup:
Courtois; Vazquez, Varane, Nacho, Mendy; Modric, Casemiro, Kroos; Asensio, Mariano, Vinicius
