Real Valladolid will take Barcelona in the match of the 36th round of the championship of Spain. The meeting is scheduled for May 23 and will start at 20:00 GMT.
Valladolid is in the relegation zone in 18th place in the Spanish Championship table with 35 points in 35 rounds played.
The club has an incredibly difficult ending ahead, which will make it clear whether the club will be able to stay in the elite division.
Even before the last round, Valladolid was out of the relegation zone, but the defeat in the last match against Cadiz with a score (0-2) forced them to drop in the table.
Meanwhile, Barcelona have already secured the league title and can safely finish the current season as leaders. The club became champions four rounds before the end of the championship.
The team was able to score 85 points in 35 rounds, and the gap from the second place in which Atlético Madrid is located is 13 points.
In the last round, the team led by Xavi lost at home to Barcelona (1-2), which interrupted a series of three victories in a row.

Head to Head
In the last five matches between the two teams, Barcelona have won all five, with Valladolid managing to win in 2014.
The last meeting of the two teams took place last year in the 3rd round of La Liga and ended with the victory of Barcelona (4-0).
The hosts have lost their last five games in the league and are in bad shape, while the guests, even in the absence of motivation, look much stronger.
We believe that Barcelona will win this meeting, despite the fact that the club became champions. We also believe in productive play in both halves.
Prediction for this match: Total over 2 goals.
- Barcelona win.
