Real Valladolid vs Huesca
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 7 October 2018
Kick-Off at 11:00 UK 12:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal Jose Zorrilla (Valladolid).
Valladolid broke into the top half of the standings after back-to-back wins over Levante and Villarreal. The league newcomers will be hoping to make it three on the bounce on Sunday when they host last season Segunda Division rivals Huesca in the first game of the day at Estadio Municipal Jose Zorrilla.
Sergio Gonzalez looks to have finally found the wanted rhythm, especially when it comes to Valladolid’s defensive displays. Pucela were particularly impressive last weekend in a 0-1 win over Villarreal away at Estadio de la Ceramica.
They should have a nice chance to keep such form going against the struggling Huesca side here. The visitors promised a decent run in their inaugural elite class campaign by winning four points from opening two games of the season. Nonetheless, they went on to collect just one point more in following five ties. Such form saw them drop down to 19th place (second from bottom).
Real Valladolid vs Huesca: Head-to-head
- Outfits have five wins apiece coming into their 13th head to head meeting.
- They both picked up narrow home wins in the previous term of Segunda Division.
- Both teams scored in just one of last four head to head affairs.
- At home, Valladolid won 4 and lost 2 of 6 matches against Huesca.
Real Valladolid vs Huesca: Prediction
The visitors have actually never recovered from a painful 8-2 defeat to Barcelona in the third round. The loss at Camp Nou triggered a streak of three consecutive defeats which saw Leonardo Franco’s men fail to score a single goal along.
The momentum was somehow improved last weekend when Huesca managed to fight out to a 1-1 draw to Girona at home. Still, their build-up play was really poor in the Blanquivermell clash and their lone goal came from the penalty spot 18 minutes from time.
Based on the current form and the H2H trend (home wins mainly), we have to fancy Pucela to claim the spoils and keep climbing up the Primera Division ladder.
