Barcelona vs Real Valladolid
Spain – La Liga
Date: Monday, 5 April 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Camp Nou (Barcelona).
Barcelona is well ahead in La Liga this season after their slow start. The Catalans are just four points behind the toppers on the table at the second spot on the table. The host is on a five-game winning streak in the campaign, following a 1-6 win on the road against the likes of Real Sociedad last time out in their schedule.
Real Valladolid has been unbeaten for the past four matches in the league, with three draws in it. The away team has only one win in their last five clashes in the campaign. Having won only five wins in their 28 attempts so far this term, the visitor doesn’t pose a huge threat to the home team. Successive draws in their form show that they have a shaky defense in the middle.

Barcelona vs Real Valladolid Prediction
There is a rare chance that Real Valladolid can topple Barcelona, who are on a winning streak in La Liga as of now. The Catalans will come into the game after losing their Champions League fixture to PSG earlier in their overall schedule. Valladolid has never won here in their h2h clashes against Barca since 1999.
Still, the host has a good run in the league and enjoys the ground advantage in it. They have scored 67 goals in their 28 league attempts until now. With this scoring spree and the likes of Messi and Griezmann in the middle, expect a high-scoring affair in ninety minutes at Camp Nou.
The home win in full-time is the best bet for the punters but the odds are too low. However, the bookies have been kind enough to keep the tip for Barcelona to win with a -1 handicap at 1.40 odds to yield decent returns in the encounter for the punters.
