Real Valladolid vs Osasuna
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 15 September 2019
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio José Zorrilla (Valladolid).
Both teams are representatives of the Segunda to this top division. While Valladolid has had an extra year at the level, their opposite number gained promotion just this last summer.
Despite the inexperience, the better of the two at the moment, at least as per league standings, is Osasuna. They are unbeaten this campaign in the competition, which even the two-time defending champions Barca could not make a claim on.
Even more impressive is the fact that, the squad had taken on this very same Blaugrana the last match-day, and managed to knock two potential points off the heavy favorites, and that too with an 81st-minute equalizer.
Quite easily, confidence is plenty in supply for the players as a result of this outcome, and the hosts for the day should be wary of this dynamics.
These two had been regular competitors in the lower division, and they are once again tying boots to ignite the rivalry at the grandest of stages in the country.

Real Valladolid vs Osasuna Prediction
Los Rojillos has the confidence of topping the competitive Segunda the last season and gaining promotion to arguably one of the best leagues in the world. Moreover, they have just added to their charm with an unbeaten run so far, and admirably this included them holding their own against the mighty Barca, with a 2-2 scorecard.
Moreover, over the years, they have held superiority in h2h clashes against this opponent. To quote a stat, the squad won three of the four former such meetings and registered six of the prior seven wins. And finally, since 2002, only once have they lost at this venue.
As such, count on the unit to avoid the loss at the least this Sunday, and continue their unbeaten run.
Coming to goals though, the home advantage will surely have a say in the matter. Consider that the most recent meeting had ended in a win for Valladolid, which was at this ground. Moreover, they won four of their five former overall home ties and even managed to find the back of the net against Real Madrid.
Taking these into account, the chance for BTTS to be fulfilled is pretty high this weekend.
