This Saturday will see Barça’s first team play its first match at the José Zorrilla in two years. Valladolid returned to the top flight this season after it was relegated in the 2009/10 season.

40 visits, 19 victories

The Blaugrana have a record of 19 wins, 10 draws and 11 defeats from their 40 trips to Valladolid since 1948. Barça have averaged 1.65 goals per match against Valladolid at the José Zorrilla (total of 66 goals scored). Valladolid have netted 43 times from 40 matches against Barça, averaging just over a goal per match.

Two defeats at home this season

With Miroslav Djukic on the bench, Valladolid have demonstrated that they're a difficult team to beat at the José Zorrilla. They’ve only lost two matches at home, against Betis and Real Madrid.

The Blaugrana are hoping add to their devastating run in La Liga and maintain their undefeated status in the competition. The 2008/09 and 2009/10 seasons were the last two times Barça played away to Valladolid, Barça won both matches by 0-1 and 0-3.
