Valladolid v Atletico Madrid tips – one win needed for Atleti

After thirty-seven games played, Atletico Madrid stand on the verge of winning the 2020/21 La Liga title, with Diego Simeone’s side having successfully navigated their way past a clutch of different opponents and it means that they have racked up eighty-three points which has them sitting two clear of Real Madrid.

A recent victory over Osasuna was fraught with tension, with Atleti trailing to their opponents before a late rally to get them back in the box seat when it comes to challenging for La Liga, with the bookies expecting the Mattress Makers to secure the league title which would be a remarkable achievement.

Bookies Predicting an Easy Win for Atletico Madrid

You know what you get with an Atletico Madrid team and the emphasis on defence means that just twenty-four goals have been conceded, with Jan Oblak being a consistently reassuring presence between the sticks and former Manchester City defender Stefan Savic has also been excellent this term.

When you compare the latest Atletico Madrid betting odds, the biggest price about Simeone’s team is 2/5 that they overcome a Real Valladolid team who are hoping for a win of their own in a quest to avoid relegation to the Segunda division.

It might be that Atletico don’t need to win the clash depending on what happens in the clash between Real Madrid and Villarreal at the Alfredo di Stefano, with the league leaders three goals better off than their opponents which means that a draw is likely to be enough.

Valladolid Scrapping Away to Stay in La Liga This Season

Perhaps amidst all the excitement of the La Liga title race, it should be remembered that there’s a scrap to avoid relegation and Valladolid will certainly be motivated for this clash at the José Zorrilla where a victory might keep them afloat in the Spanish top flight.

It’s been a struggle for a side who finished thirteenth in La Liga last season but have struggled to amass the requisite number of points this time around, with the Pucela having won just five of their games this season and it’s now been eleven games without a domestic victory.

If you compare the latest betting odds, you can get a price of 15/2 about Valladolid winning this clash and they have nothing to lose from having a go at their opponents, with the bookies anticipating the game being a fairly open one.

What Are the Best Bets for Valladolid v Atletico Madrid?

We think both sides might tread carefully in this game, especially in the early stages of the game and there could be some merit in betting on the Under 2.5 Goals betting selection despite the fact that this is the outsider pick on this market, with the bookies expecting three or more goals to be scored.

On the flip side, if you’re expecting Valladolid to really go for the jugular, you might be interested in Atletico to win the game and both teams to find the net, with the odds comparison offering 21/10 about that outcome.

The Atletico Madrid betting odds of 4/11 illustrates that the bookies have them as strong favourites although many punters will be reluctant to bet singles at this price and it might only be appropriate for an accumulator selection.

There could be some kind of merit in backing Atleti to lead at half-time and full-time at evens with William Hill, with Luis Suarez hoping to build on that late winner against Osasuna, with the Uruguayan often coming up trumps in these sort of games.

Perhaps it will be another 2-1 victory for the visitors, with the La Liga betting markets proving plentiful and the correct score option for this Spanish football bet is 15/2 with bet365.
