" Prediction, prediction, squad news and more from Valladolid vs Real Madrid | La Liga 2020-212

 On Saturday, Real Madrid will fly to Valladolid as the men of Zinedine Zidane look to close the Atletico Madrid gap at the top of La Liga.

Currently, Madrid is six points behind their city opponents, having played a game more than the hand of Diego Simeone.

Los Blancos are already on a three-game winning streak, and Zidane would expect that a struggling Valladolid side will be able to do brief work for his side.

Zidane will also have one finger on Wednesday's impending UEFA Champions League clash between Real Madrid and Italian outfit Atalanta. With that in mind, the changes to the game against Valladolid could ring in.

Valladolid had an awful season and at the moment, sitting 18th in La Liga, they find themselves in a relegation battle.

In their last six matches in all competitions, Sergio Gonzalez's team has not won. On Sunday, they are going to come up against one of the most in-form teams in the league.

Zidane's men need a win to get Atletico Madrid within three points, and Valladolid on Sunday shouldn't be much of a challenge for them.

Valladolid vs Head-to-Head with Real Madrid

As predicted, recent meetings between the two sides have been dominated by Real Madrid. In their last 9 meetings versus Valladolid, Los Blancos are undefeated.

In the last five clashes, Madrid won four against the Albivioletas, losing the remaining. Earlier this season, Zidane's men walked away as 1-0 winners in the reverse fixture.
