Barcelona vs Valladolid: Score prediction, live stream, lineups, TV, kick-off time – LaLiga preview
Barcelona are looking to get back to winning ways when they welcome Valladolid to the Nou Camp on Saturday evening.

The champions have been held in their last two La Liga outings, at home to Valencia and in last Sunday’s goalless draw against Athletic Bilbao.

Add the 1-1 draw in the first leg of the Copa del Rey Clasico in between those and you have to go back to January 30 for their last win.

After stalling a little in recent weeks, Ernesto Valverde’s side will be going all out for the win at Camp Nou

After going three matches without a victory in all competitions, Barcelona are looking to get back on track against Valladolid on Saturday.

Ernesto Valverde’s side have drawn three tricky fixtures in succession, held twice at Camp Nou 

– 2-2 in La Liga by Valencia and 1-1 by Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey – before a goalless draw away to Athletic Club last weekend.

Their weekend opponents, meanwhile, are floating precariously above the relegation zone, having drawn 0-0 with Villarreal a week ago.

Team News of Barcelona vs Valladolid

Asked whether defender Samuel Umtiti could return soon following a long layoff with a knee problem, Ernesto Valverde said on Friday: “We have time to assess before Lyon (on Tuesday) and decide.

January arrival Jean-Clair Todibo is unlikely to feature just yet, though.

Barcelona have a familiar collection of injury problems for head coach Ernesto Valverde ahead of this encounter.

Second-string goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen is still out along with long-term victim Rafinha and Arthur Melo.

Samuel Umtiti is nearing a return to action but the odds are this game will come too soon for him.

Real Valladolid lost winger Pablo Hervias, who signed on loan in January from Eibar, due to a knee problem, while Luismi is still sidelined with a long-term ankle concern.

Oscar Plano is banned, while Ruben Alcaraz is also out.
