Real Valladolid v Barcelona Preview:

Relegation battling Real Valladolid welcome the LaLiga champions Barcelona at the Estadio Municipal Jose Zorrilla on Tuesday night. The away trip to Cadiz was a very important game from a relegation perspective for Paulo Pezzolano’s side as they lost 2-0. Moreover, with Getafe picking a point against Elche, meant the White and Violet’s dropped into the relegation zone. Real Valladolid picked 7 points mid-April against the likes of Mallorca, Villarreal and Girona, post which they are on a five-game losing streak, conceding at least 2 goals in the process. With the final two games against bottom half sides Almeria and Getafe, the relegation battle would go down the wire. Pezzolano’s side also have the fourth worst home record in the LaLiga this season, with just 7 wins in 17 matches, scoring just 18 in the process. They don’t have a great record in particular against Barcelona, losing each of their last 7 matches in the Liga against the current champions, that includes a 4-0 defeat in the reverse fixture at Camp Nou.

Barcelona on the other hand, who were crowned champions on May 14th, didn’t have a pretty return to the Camp Nou as they suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Real Sociedad. Lewandowski scored his 22nd goal of his league campaign, however that proved to just be a consolation following Merino and Sorloth’s strikes earlier. This was just the fourth defeat that Xavi’s men have faced all season, however they now have 2 defeats in last five. Xavi’s side has the best away record this season in the Liga, winning 13 out of their 17 away trips – and despite the recent slip-ups, they will still be considered as favorites to win this tie tonight.
