Real Valladolid vs Girona
Spain – Primera Division
Date: Tuesday, 23rd April 2019
Kick-off at 19.30 UK/ 20.30 CET
Venue: Estadio José Zorrilla (Valladolid).
Girona may have lost their last four matches in a row, but all four were against tough opponents. As such, a wrong picture has been painted about their form. The team earlier looked threatening enough to fight for the top-seven spots, and thus even European entry. They still have the will and fight left. Importantly, their stretch of hard fixtures has taken a halt for now too.
Valladolid is in the relegation zone and will have to step up their game in order to escape a boot to the Segunda. But their offense will have to step up massively if they are to see a minute of the next edition of this league. So far, they have scored just 26 goals from 32 games – the least in the competition.

- Valladolid has had a near perfect h2h record at this venue, with five wins and a draw in the six meetings.
- Two of the last three encounters at this venue also had both teams on the scorecard.
Real Valladolid vs Girona Prediction
Girona is a vastly improved team when compared to their state in the previous years, and as such their unsatisfactory record at this venue cannot be given too much significance. The team has been a real threat to even major teams, defeating even the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid.
As of now, their future hangs in the balance. The team has just a three-point buffer to fall on, preventing them from being relegated. While it’s true they lost their last four games in a row, the opponents were of huge stature too. Before that dismal run, Girona had a four-match winning run on the road, that saw them defeating Barcelona and Real Madrid.
With these observations in mind, we feel that Girona would rise to the occasion, to make their stay in the La Liga safe, and since they are taking on a team from the exit zone, the upper hand definitely goes to them.
Valladolid is desperate and needs points too. It’s now or never for them, and with a nothing-to-lose attitude, they can be counted on to bring in a hard game. BTTS seems like the most probable outcome for this tie.
