Villarreal vs Real Valladolid
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Saturday, 21 September 2019
Kick-off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: Estadio de la Ceramica (Villareal).
Valladolid had joined the La Liga after gaining promotion at the end of the 2017-18 season. The previous edition of this competition saw the team register a satisfactory campaign. Considering that their prime objective was to avoid relegation, the run was deemed successful by fans.
This time around, they had begun with a win, but owing to some tough fixtures (Real Madrid, Levante etc), failed to post any more wins on the board.
Hosts Villarreal will try to pile on the ongoing misery of Real, and to be frank, they really have no other option too. So far, the Yellow Submarines have been able to post a single win on the board, and if they are serious about getting back to the top of the food chain in the Spanish league, points will have to be accrued on a more consistent manner.

Villarreal vs Valladolid Prediction
Javier Calleja’s men may be on the downside of things right now. But keep note that they used to be one of the best in the competition for quite a long time before this. In fact, they used to be a perennial contender for the European spots before their fall from grace.
As of now, they have determined to get back where they belong. Considering that they are at home, and is taking on a relatively inexperienced squad, the upper hand goes to the hosts.
Moreover, the Submarines have lost just thrice in front of the home crowd this whole year and scored twice or more in their prior four appearances here. On the contrary, their counterparts were winless in 17 of their previous 20 road trips, and have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 24 games on the road.
Finally, h2h clashes too have been favorable towards the sides that hosted the fixture, with 15 of the prior 19 wins going to such squads.
Taking all these into account, the top pick is easily a win for the home team.
