Dan Fitch is backing Barcelona to claim three points against Valladolid as he previews the midweek La Liga action, but he thinks that goals will be at a premium.

Barca to win close game

Barcelona 1.16 v Valladolid 24.00; The Draw 9.80

After a weekend off following the postponement of El Clasico, Barcelona can return to the top of La Liga with a win over Valladolid.
Barcelona are currently second, a point behind the leaders Granada, but with a game in hand. The extra rest will no doubt aid their chances of victory and that will be a useful advantage against a Valladolid side in fine form.
Valladolid are unbeaten in five (W2 D3), beating Eibar 2-0 at the weekend. Currently ninth in the league, they have only lost twice all season (W2 D5 L2) and are only six points away from Granada. That's impressive considering that of their ten opponents this season, six are in the top half of La Liga, with Valladolid having drawn games with Real Madrid, Granada and Atletico Madrid.
The success of Sergio's team has been built upon solid defensive foundations. Only one of their ten games this season have seen more than two goals scored and that make the Barcelona win and under 2.5 goals a potentially lucrative option at 4.30.

Leganes struggling for goals on the road

Real Madrid 1.30 v Leganes 13.00; The Draw 6.00

Despite having been top of La Liga for much of the season, a poor result against Mallorca in their last outing followed by a weekend without a game, has seen Real Madrid slip down to sixth.
With the top seven currently only separated by three points, Madrid are still very much in the mix. Two points behind Granada, they could very easily go into next weekend having reclaimed the top spot, should they beat Leganes as expected.
Real bounced back from their disappointing defeat to Mallorca with a very useful 1-0 victory away at Galatasaray, which was their first win in the group stage of the competition this season. Leganes beat Mallorca on Saturday, but as it was their first league victory of the season, they remain rooted to the bottom of La Liga.

Their away form is poor, with Leganes having lost four of their five away games (D1). In the last two they have failed to score and you can back Real Madrid to win to nil at 2.20.

In-form Granada available at huge price

Getafe 1.90 v Granada 4.60; The Draw 3.50

With Granada not in action until Thursday, it's likely that they will be looking to regain their position at the top of La Liga when they travel to Getafe.
That might not be an easy task. Getafe have lost their last two games, but they were up against good teams in Basel and Sevilla. The only other sides that Getafe have lost against this season are Atletico Madrid and Barcelona.
This should be an interesting test of whether Granada belong in such elite company. They returned to the top of La Liga with a 1-0 win against Real Betis on Sunday and the list of teams that have beaten them since they returned to the top flight is a short one, with only Sevilla and Real Madrid inflicting defeats.
Given Granada's form, the price of 4.60 for an away win is huge. It's big enough that you can play it safe by backing Granada to simply avoid defeat in the Double Chance market at 2.00.
