Valladolid vs Valencia: prediction for the La Liga fixture
Valladolid suffered defeats in five latest matches. Do hosts have a chance for success in the match against Valencia on January 29? The answer is in our prediction.
After a 0:3 defeat to Atletico, Real Valladolid are going into the game with a second-longest losing streak in Top-5 European leagues. Club's sporting director, Fran Sanchez, supported team's head coach Pacheta, saying that «there will be hard times, but we should stick together to get through this».
Nonetheless, today's match won't be easy for team's manager, because Pucela didn't win a single game against the Oranges in last 14 years. Hosts currently have five victories and two draws, delivering 17 points and an 18th position in the standings.
Anuar, El Yamiq, Kenedy and Escudero will miss the upcoming match.
Valencia got themselves into a difficult situation - team suffered a 1:3 defeat to Athletic Bilbao in a tough Copa del Rey encounter on Thursday evening. Two unsuccessful games against Cadiz (0:1) and Almeria (2:2) in La Liga makes things even more complicated in a relegation battle.
The Bats are going into the game with five victories and five draws to their name, delivering 20 points and a 13th position in the standings. Team is good on the offense, but defensive line worries Gennaro Gattuso.
Kluivert, Correia, Nico and Domenech will miss the upcoming game.
