Real Valladolid vs Valencia
Spain – La Liga
Date: Saturday, 18th May 2019
Kick-off at 15.15 UK/ 16.15 CET
Venue: Estadio José Zorrilla (Valladolid).
Valencia needs a win in this tie if they are to hold on to their fourth and final Champions League spot. Should they drop points, Getafe could climb higher with a better result, as both are level on points. As Valencia has a better h2h record against Getafe this season, if the former proceeds to win this tie, the result of the Getafe vs Villarreal match becomes meaningless.
Valladolid raised their intensity right when it looked like they might be taking a trip downwards for at least a year. As of now, the team has mathematically ensured their safety, and despite being at home, even if they go on to lose this game, the team will take part in the next edition of the La Liga.

Real Valladolid vs Valencia Prediction
The difference in ambitions could not be more contrasting between these teams. While Valladolid had been fighting to avoid relegation, Valencia was in contention for the Champions League. H2h ties show this disparity in talent, as well.
Last Valencia lost against this team was ten years back, and the one before that came in 2002. Going on, at this venue, only once has the visitors lost an h2h tie in the last 20 years.
In addition, Valencia was unbeaten in 24 of their last 30 games and won 12 of their last 19. On the road, they avoided a loss in ten of the last thirteen encounters. Valladolid, meanwhile, was winless in 19 of their last 24 matches, and in 12 of their last 16 at home.
As things stand, expect a dominating win for the top-tier side.
