Barcelona must try and keep their faint La Liga title hopes alive when they travel to Real Valladolid on Saturday at 6:30 PM.
The Blaugrana beat city rivals Espanyol 1-0 last time out (a result which relegated Periquitos) to end a run of two consecutive draws. However, Real Madrid sit a point ahead with a game in hand and remain firmly in control of the title race with just three games remaining.
Although they lost 2-1 against Valencia last time out, Saturday’s opponents Valladolid have been in decent form since returning to action having gone four matches unbeaten prior to that defeat to Los Che.
As a result, Sergio González’s men sit 14th in the table on 39 points, meaning they can now start planning for a third straight season in the Spanish top-flight.
Will Barcelona stroll past a safe Valladolid or will the hosts hand Quique Setien another huge title blow?
