New-look Barcelona

The new-look Barcelona began their season in disappointing fashion, a goalless draw against Rayo Vallecano in the opening round. They then defeated Real Sociedad, 4-1, on the road with new star Robert Lewandowski scoring a brace. Goals from Ousmane Dembele and Ansu Fati secured the victory.

It was an impressive result, but there’s certainly room for improvement as far as performance is concerned. Xavi’s side took the game away from the hosts in the second half, showcasing the brilliant firepower of  Lewandowski, Fati and Dembele. They still they have some internal issues, however. Their latest transfer, Jules Kounde, is not registered for the third match in a row.

Lewandowski, Raphinha, Franck Kessie and Andreas Christensen were all registered just 24 hours ahead of the opener against Rayo Vallecano. Barcelona must sell some more players in order to officially register Kounde. Strikers Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Memphis Depay may be sold to allow Barca to comply with the salary-cap rules of La Liga. However, the transfer window ends soon, so time’s running out to register their last player.

Barcelona and Manchester City broke from their competitive endeavors with a charity match at Camp Nou. The clubs played to a 3-3 draw in front of 91,000 fans, with Barcelona want-aways Frenkie de Jong, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and Memphis Depay all on the scoresheet for the hosts. Barcelona will definitely have the edge this against newly-promoted Valladolid Sunday, so we’ll include them in our soccer picks and parlays.

Valladolid Relegation Candidate

Valladolid suffered through the heartbreak of relegation to LaLiga 2 in 2021/22, However, they wasted no time securing a return to the top-flight league this season. One of the stars of their promotion campaign was Shon Weissman, who not only was the club’s leading marksman, but finished among the highest scorers in the division. They managed to keep him at the club, though injured and probably not playing.

Avoiding relegation and staying for one more season in the top-flight league is the Valladolid objective. Beginning the season with a 3-0 loss to Villarreal. That wasn’t unexpected, but they managed keeping Sevilla to a 1-1 draw in their last match.

They are an ambitious club with the Brazilian legend, Ronaldo, as their president. It will be very difficult for them to remain in La Liga. With a total market value of just $64m, Valladolid had a silent summer transfer window, spending just $5m on players with almost no experience. If you’re betting online, they are a team to fade here.

Barcelona vs Valladolid Head-to-Head

Barcelona have impressive records against the newly-promoted Valladolid, winning their previous six mutual encounters and 14 of their last 15.
