Real Valladolid vs Alaves Spanish LaLiga Predictions by LeagueLane

Valladolid vs Alaves
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 16 September 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal Jose Zorrilla (Valladolid).

Valladoliid returned to the top flight of the Spanish football after spending four years on loan in the second tier. Spending more than one year in the elite class would be a massive success for the team led by Sergio, but they’ll have a mountain to climb to avoid the instant drop. Pucela lack the quality to stay competitive at this level and they have by far the “cheapest” team in the league.

It is thus no wonder Valladolid are still looking for their first goal of the season. Can they find it on Sunday afternoon when Alaves come to visit Estadio Municipal Jose Zorrilla?

The visitors were in a similar position after two rounds, but they managed to shine and bag their inaugural goals of the campaign in the third round victory over Espanyol in front of the home crowd. These goals came within just two minutes as Borja Baston and Roberto Soriano secured the instant comeback after Baptistao’s penalty-goal for the Budgerigars at Estadio de Mendizorroza.

Valladolid vs Alaves: Head-to-head

Valladolid lead the head to head tie by a single win coming into their landmark 20th encounter with Babazorros.

This will be their first meeting in the elite tier since 2003.

They’ve battled it out in Segunda Division in the meantime, playing the previous H2H clash two years ago.

Interestingly, both teams were on the scoreline in all of last three head to head affairs.

Valladolid vs Alaves: Prediction

The hosts did manage to strengthen their attacking line with the likes of Enes Unal and Duje Cop in the last days of the summer transfer window. However, the head coach Sergio will clearly still need some time to bed in this attacking duo.

He has reasons to be thrilled with his men’s displays at the back as Pucela did not concede more than one goal in three outings so far even though they’ve played the defending champions Barcelona in the second round (0-1 defeat at Jose Zorrilla).

Knowing that Alaves also played very tight at the back conceding just once in last two league fixtures, backing a low-scoring contest just seems to be the way to go here. You can have the Under 2.5 goals FT as a banker bet at the 1.50 odds.

Alternatively, the value is with the draw at 3.10.

Valladolid vs Alaves: Bet Tips

  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.50 (1/2)
  • Full-time Draw @ 3.10 (21/10).
