Storylines

Real Madrid: Real has only lost once in 20 games and looking sharp with back-to-back victories. Led by the league's best defense with 13 goals conceded in 20 matches, this is a team primed to win the league, boosted by Barcelona's loss of Luis Suarez for four months with a leg injury. Where they have excelled lately is the composure in the middle of the field and the patience in attack. The cohesion continues to grow under Zinedine Zidane for a team trending upwards. 

Real Valladolid: In the thick of the relegation battle but currently six points clear. They are probably four wins away from safety, but don't overlook how hard this team can be to beat. They've only lost six times in 20 games, with those 10 draws equating to essentially three more victories in terms of points. They are one of the worst scoring teams in the league but have one of the best defenses, conceding 23 goals in 20 games.
