All Barcelona v Real Valladolid game predictions, stats and user poll are shown below (inc. the best betting odds).
Barcelona, following on from their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after a 1-6 La Liga success vs Real Sociedad.
In that game, Barcelona managed 69% possession and 14 attempts at goal with 10 of them on target. For Barcelona, the goalscorers were Antoine Griezmann (37'), Sergiño Dest (43', 53'), Lionel Messi (56', 89') and Ousmane Dembélé (71'). Real Sociedad had 10 attempts on goal with 5 of them on target. Barrenetxea (77') was the scorer for Real Sociedad.
Their most recent results really do illustrate the point that much respect should be given to the Barcelona backline. Barça have been mean at the back, resulting in the number of goals that have gone past their goalkeeper during their past six matches standing at 3.
A look at their previous results shows us that Barcelona:
- haven't lost in the league to Real Valladolid in their last 5 matches.
- are unbeaten in their previous 11 league matches at home. It's been impressive.
In their last fixture, Real Valladolid drew 1-1 in the La Liga match with Sevilla.
In that game, Real Valladolid managed 31% possession and 3 attempts on goal with 2 on target. The scorer for Real Valladolid was Fabián Orellana (44'). At the other end, Sevilla FC got 12 attempts on goal with 4 on target. Yassine Bounou (94') scored for Sevilla.

The overall average goals scored per game during that spell comes to a mere 1.67, with the average goals for Pucela equalling 0.83. That trend might not be carried forward here, of course.
Analysis of their past results shows that Real Valladolid:
- are unbeaten in their previous 3 away league matches.
