La Liga: FC Barcelona vs Real Valladolid: Predict the Score

A chance to predict the score of tonight's La Liga encounter between FC Barcelona and Real Valladolid at the Camp Nou

Victor Fraile

Barcelona may have crashed out of the UEFA Champions League in a rather humiliating fashion, but if this week has proved anything, it's that the grass is not always greener on the other side. After all, no matter how "badly" you feel the season has gone for FC Barcelona, it's been far worse for Jose Mourinho and Real Madrid. Just a year after setting a record for points gained in a single La Liga season, Los Blancos fell out of the title race early, and never looked like recovering. Victories over the Blaugrana in the Supercopa de Espana, and in the Copa del Rey in particular appeared to demonstrate Real's undoubted ability - but ultimately, Real Madrid have failed on each and every front this season. Their club captain has been alienated, their manager has caused rifts at virtually every level - and thanks to Atletico Madrid and Miranda's extra-time winner, Real will finish the season without a major trophy. All the while, Barcelona edge closer to equalling that 100-point mark set just last season. So much for a disappointing season eh?

Even in the face of illness, injuries and morale-crushing defeats, Barcelona have consistently bounced back from every single challenge and may yet register the most successful La Liga campaign in their history. Sure, we would have loved to have contested the UCL final at Wembley, but really, who can complain? If anything we should be grateful for this team - and the worrying thing for the rest of La Liga is that Barcelona can and almost certainly will improve over the summer. A new striker to take some of the pressure off of Lionel Messi, and an elite centre-half to help solve the Blaugrana's defensive troubles. Will they move one step closer to the century mark, or will Valladolid end Barca's hopes of a 100 point season? Predict the score in our poll, and comment with your prediction below to be in with a chance of winning a prize at the season's end. Best of luck!
