Valencia and Real Valladolid meet in La Liga soccer action from the Estadio de Mestalia on Tuesday afternoon.
Valencia enters this match in 9th place on 47 points tied with Granada with a record of 12 wins, 11 draws and 11 losses following a 2-2 tie with Granada last time out. The first half saw Granada pick up the lone booking with no goalscoring, but Granada would take the lead just after the hour mark from the penalty spot. Manu Vallejo tied the game at one for Valencia two minutes later and Goncalo Guedes pushed Valencia 2-1 in front just five minutes later. Valencia held on for most of the second half but Granada would find the equalizing goal in the 86th minute. Neither side would find a go-ahead goal late, leaving the points to be shared at full time. Maxi Gomez leads Valencia in scoring with 9 goals while Daniel Parejo is right behind with 8 goals this season. Rodrigo Moreno has a team-high 7 assists while Daniel Wass has 6 assists.
Real Valladolid on the other side, come into this one in 13th place on 39 points with a record of 8 wins, 15 draws and 11 losses following a 1-0 win over Alaves last time out. In the victory over Alaves, the first half saw three bookings and no scoring, most of the second half remained scoreless, looking like we were about to witness another draw for Valladolid. Joaquin Fernandez had other ideas though, giving Valladolid a late winner in the 88th minute, stealing the points at the death. Enes Unal and Sergi Guardiola share the team-high in scoring with 6 goals this season. Jordi Masip leads Valladolid in goal, conceding 0.94 goals per 90 minutes with 11 clean sheets in 33 league appearances this season.
This match is hard to call as Valencia is probably the better team on paper, but Valladolid’s on the four game unbeaten run. One thing that’s common between the two sides is that there are a lot of low-scoring games, as 11 of their combined 14 games have seen two goals or less. I’m going to side with the under as my main bet for this match while braver bettors will also look to chase the full time draw. I can see this one ending all square, just like two of the last three meetings between these two that have ended 1-1.
