Who will win the match between Real Valladolid vs Espanyol?

Valladolid are on a long stretch of poor results, and are about to take part in the relegation race, whereas their counterparts are on a winning streak at the moment – and are going after a top-ten position.

It appears that Espanyol are about to deliver a win this Sunday.

How many goals can be expected?

Valladolid let in five goals from their past two games, and the last they kept a clean sheet at this venue in an h2h encounter was back in 2014. With Espanyol determined to secure a win at any cost, chances are high for goals to come in huge numbers this weekend.

Will Both Teams Score in the match?

Espanyol might have the upper hand at the Estadio Jose Zorrilla, but note that they managed to keep just three clean sheets on the road in the past six months, and just five in the last 12-month period.

It looks like both teams are slotting in goals this Sunday.

Real Valladolid vs Espanyol Prediction

Espanyol won the reverse fixture, and they have an unbeaten record in h2h clashes in the past 15 years, barring just three games. They are also on a two-game winning streak, and they lost just four times on the road this whole season.

On the other hand, Valladolid have a single win at home in the past four months, and they even lost seven of their previous ten overall fixtures.

Recent form, as well as previous h2h results point towards Espanyol securing a win this Sunday – and the odds for the same are placed at 3.25.

However, their defense does not inspire confidence. In fact, they could record just five clean sheets in total on the road in the past 12 months, and they have a single clean sheet in league h2h meetings at this venue in the past 22 years.

As such, Both Teams to Score looks like a reasonable option, at 2.00 odd.
