Real Valladolid vs Villarreal Match Preview
Valladolid did exactly what we predicted when they lost to Huesca last weekend, but can be confident of bouncing back when hosting a Villarreal side enduring a terrible domestic season.
We advised backing Huesca to beat Valladolid and also a clean sheet to be kept in that game, and both bets were landed at odds of 13/10 and 19/20 respectively.
But with home advantage, the club that have Brazil legend Ronaldo as their majority shareholder look a good bet to return to winning ways at the expense of a Villarreal team who have slumped from finishing in the top six in each of the past five years to relegation candidates this time.
Villarreal need to start winning matches soon if they are to avoid going down, like they did in 2011-12, for they are without a victory in the league since November and their most recent triumph on the road was in September.
The Yellow Submarine have just reappointed Javier Calleja as manager only seven weeks after sacking him, and to complicate the scenario even further they have a Europa League knockout tie coming up next week against Sporting Lisbon.
It’s difficult to see how Villarreal can be favourites for this game considering their poor current form and the odds must be based largely on reputation – which simply makes Valladolid’s price to win look much the better value.
