THE PREDICTION

Atletico clicked into gear last time out as they destroyed Osasuna 5-0 away from home to make ground in the race for the Champions League places. They are able to rotate but maintain a strong side and there is excellent competition for places right now. The same cannot be said for Valladolid who are not rotating as much although they have been playing reasonably well with four points from their last two games. They have breathing space now in the relegation fight which is ideal as they are highly unlikely to get anything from this game, and will find it difficult to score.
