The BAR vs VLD match preview –
In La Liga, defending champions Barcelona will be playing their second game of the season against Real Valladolid.
Barcelona started their campaign with an excellent performance against Alaves. Their talisman Lionel Messi seems unaffected by the disappointing World Cup he had, and is on fire. With his arch-rival Cristiano Ronaldo no longer in this league, it seems that he once again is the Alpha dog of Spanish football.
Real Valladolid, on the other hand, started their campaign with a slow start. Scoring has always been a problem for the team and just before the transfer window got closed, they made some good signings to supplement them in that department. The problem they have is the number of injuries they have and they need to be on top to get a result against a giant like Barcelona.
