Real Valladolid

Valladolid manager, Juan Ignacio Martínez was satisfied and disappointed at the same time when the Pucelas were forced to settle for a 2-2 stalemate against Valencia.

 

Martínez’s disappointment stemmed from conceding 2 goals and the need to score 3 more to win. Nevertheless, the fact that they did not easily wave the white flag was enough to appease the coach.

 

The result of its recent match was Valladolid’s third draw. The club is in dire need of creating a winning formula when it comes to its home matches as away encounters do not always yield favorable results.

 

The Pucelas have only won once in its last 6 clashes. The draws have kept them away from the relegation zone. Yet, they need a victory soon as clubs at the bottom of are also striving to get out of the relegation zone.

 

Osasuna

Javi Gracia described the result against Almeria as a far-flung shot from being their “brightest match.” Osasuna has to endure a Almeria’s 1-0 victory and stumble to the 19th spot of the relegation zone.  The result was their 2nd consecutive loss in their last 6 matches.

Other than a lackluster performance, Gracia also admitted that injury issues as well as suspensions (Armentoros and Cejudo) in particular, also contributed to the loss.
Pitted against Real Valladolid, Osasuna’s winning chances are slim as they stumbled in 8 of their last 9 matches. In addition, their last 9 matches saw them concede 2 goals on an average.

Winning away matches is a bit more difficult and with Osasuna’s away record, Real Valladolid have better chances of clinching the victory. Going for Valladolid with a 2.60 odds is a perfect pick.
