Valladolid vs Huesca
Spain La Liga
Date: Friday, 29 January 2021
Kick-Off at 20.00 UK
Venue: Estadio Municipal Jose Zorrilla.
Valladolid and Huesca will raise the curtain on the Matchday No 21 in La Liga on Friday evening when they take on each other in a low-profile clash at Estadio Municipal Jose Zorrilla.
The visitors are in a much tougher position going into the tie. They sit at the rock-bottom of the league standings with 13 points from 20 games. The safe zone is six points away at the moment. Their rivals are also near the relegation water, sitting on 20 points ahead of the clash.
Fatigue might play a big role for the hosts here as the important relegation six-pointer comes just three days after their Copa del Rey tie against Levante (on Tuesday). Interestingly, Valladolid played Los Legionarios last weekend as well, when the teams shared spoils in a 2-2 draw in the league. Sergio’s men will thus head into this match off the back of two straight 2-2 draws in La Liga.
Valladolid vs Huesca Head-to-head
- The head to head record is all square at six wins apiece ahead of the teams’ 16th encounter.
- They shared spoils in a 2-2 draw when they last met each other in mid-October last year at Estadio El Alcoraz.
- There were four or more goals scored in three of the last four head to head matches between these two outfits.
Valladolid vs Huesca Prediction
Both the recent head to head record and Valladolid’s form suggest an open game packed with goals. Nevertheless, the problem we have with the Over 2.5 goals FT pick is the fact that Huesca have the worst attacking line in the entire division. They have failed to score more than 14 goals in 20 league outings this term. Moving forward, Azulgranas notched just one goal in the last five league fixtures.
None of the last three games Huesca played has produced three or more goals. The visitors will come into this off the back of a goalless draw with Villarreal. The game has a massive importance for both sides, especially the visitors who have made a managerial change two weeks ago. Huesca can ill afford a defeat and we expect them to sit carefully at the back waiting for an opportunity from the counter attacks. We’ll back the low-scoring draw here.
