Atletico Madrid

After settling for two straight draws early in the 2020-21 season, Atletico Madrid has won five straight games. Because of this, they moved to second place in the team classification. During its winning run, the team has allowed only one goal while scoring an average of 2.4 goals each outing. In their last game against Barcelona, Atleti goalkeeper Jan Oblak made four saves. His teammates stifled every Barca attempt to score. Atletico was able to manufacture the game-clinching goal thanks to Yannick Carrasco’s first-half stoppage time conversion.

The victory gave Atletico manager Diego Simeone his first La Liga win over Barcelona. The win was also stunning for the Atleti. The XI played without Uruguayan forward Luis Suarez, who has produced five goals in six matches. It remains to be seen whether Suarez, who tested positive for coronavirus, will make an appearance and play for the team. Still, the team is strong with Joao Felix and Angel Correa leading the offense and Oblak patrolling the pipes.

Players to Watch: Joao Felix (5 goals, 2 assists); Luis Suarez (5 goals, 1 assist); Marcos Llorente (3 goals, 2 assists); Yannick Carrasco (2 goals, 0 assists); Angel Correa (1 goal, 5 assists).

Real Valladolid

Currently in 17th place, Real Valladolid hopes to climb up the team classification and avoid relegation. However, in its last outing against Levante, the Pucelanos struggled to gain possession and only had the ball for 35% of the 90-minute contest. Marcos de Sousa gave the go-ahead goal for Valladolid in the 57th minute. However, its defense stumbled in the 83rd minute, allowing Jose Campaña to score a penalty. The truce was the fourth in 11 games for Real Valladolid, who now has 10 points.

Marcos de Sousa, who leads the team in scoring with three goals, will try to kick Valladolid out of the relegation picture. In terms of defense, Real Valladolid has an open contest on who is the better goalkeeper. Roberto Gago has played six games and recorded 17 saves but has allowed 10 goals under his watch. On the other hand, Jordi Masip had lesser saves with 12 but is better in goals allowed with six in five matches.

Players to Watch: Marcos de Sousa (3 goals, 0 assists); Oscar Piano (1 goal, 3 assists); Sergi Guardiola (1 goal, 2 assists); Fabian Orellana (1 goal, 0 assists); Bruno (1 goal, 0 assists).
