Saturday's La Liga predictions including Real Valladolid vs. Barcelona

Sports Mole provides score predictions for all of Saturday's La Liga action, including Real Valladolid vs. Barcelona.

Celta Vigo will be looking to secure their spot in La Liga for the 2020-21 campaign when they travel to Estadio El Sadar to face Osasuna on Saturday afternoon.

The visitors are currently 15th in the table, seven points clear of the relegation zone, while Osasuna, who have impressed many with their form this season, occupy 11th.

We say: Osasuna 1-1 Celta Vigo

Osasuna, on home soil, should be the favourites, but Arrasate's side are currently missing a number of important players. Celta, on the other hand, picked up an impressive point against Atletico last time out, and we are finding it difficult to predict the visitors to lose this game.

Barcelona's pursuit of La Liga leaders Real Madrid will continue on Saturday night when they head to Estadio Municipal Jose Zorilla to take on Real Valladolid.

The Spanish champions will enter this weekend's clash off the back of a 1-0 win over Espanyol on Wednesday, while Valladolid suffered a 2-1 defeat at Valencia 24 hours earlier.

We say: Valladolid 0-2 Barcelona

Only a win will do for Barca as they chase down Real Madrid, and we are finding it difficult to see the champions slipping up here. De Jong's expected return is excellent news for the Catalan giants, who should have too much for the home side on Saturday night.

Atletico Madrid will be looking to return to winning ways in Spain's top flight when they welcome Real Betis to the Wanda Metropolitano on Saturday night.

Diego Simeone's side were held to a 1-1 draw at Celta Vigo on Tuesday, while Betis will enter the match off the back of an impressive 3-0 success at home to Osasuna.

We say: Atletico 1-0 Betis

Betis put in a strong performance against Osasuna in their last match, but there are not many more tougher grounds to visit than the Wanda Metropolitano. Atletico will be keen to return to winning ways after sharing the points with Celta, and we are expecting a narrow home victory on Saturday night.
