In the 5th round of La Liga, Valladolid will host Atletico Madrid tonight. After two lost matches at the start of the season, home side took their first points and now they are standing on 12th position. Valladolid is an average team which looks like they have an “ambitions” to stay in the middle of the table and they are doing that for years.
Before start of the season Atletico sold Falcao, their best player from the last season, and instead of him they brought Villa. They didn’t change many players from the last season, but they are playing very good and back in the top of the table, where they belong.
I don’t think they have enough strengths to win the title, beside Real Madrid and Barcelona, but they will play very important role in La Liga and Champions League as well. After 4 rounds and 4 wins, they are sharing 1st position with Barca.
Valladolid miss Lasson, while Valiente and Rama are both doubtful. On the other side Atletico miss Adrian, but they have better solution in attack.
Atletico Madrid is maybe little tired after match in Champions League three days ago in which they beat Zenit 3-1, but I think they will have enough strengths to take another three points.
Valladolid – Atletico Madrid Betting Tip: 2 @ 1.7
