An In-Depth Look at the Match
Here are our top Valladolid v Valencia betting tips. The hosts have put together an impressive run of form to haul themselves clear of the danger are and they go into this match sitting 16th in the table with season stats of 10-11-16. They were staring relegation in the face only recently but were able to ease their worries with a run of three wins and a draw in their last five, moving them four points clear of the bottom-three. There’s still six points to play for so there will be no back-slapping in the dressing room just yet, but they have handed themselves a real chance of beating the drop and playing La Liga football again next season.
Valladolid have won each of their last two league starts to put together a 100% run for the month of May so far. They also went close to beating Real Madrid last month when scoring first to take the lead at home thanks to a Mohamed strike on 29 minutes. That seemed to ruffle their opponents who responded in style, scoring through Varane, Modric and a Benzema double, despite Madrid having Casemiro sent off following two bookings. Valladolid enjoy home advantage here, but they are 13/2 outsiders with Ladbrokes, the draw trading 7/2 with the same firm.
Bookies Pick Valencia
Two wins on the bounce has thrown Valencia into contention for a top-four finish and a crack at the Champions League next season. They have enjoyed a decent season fighting for prizes in both Spain and the continent and stats of 14-16-7 has them fourth in line, level on points with Getafe in fifth and only two better than Sevilla down in sixth. Valencia are at a vital stage of the season. Win their last two and they’ll likely qualify for Europe’s elite, while anything less will leave the door open for Getafe to take advantage.
The visitors have won three of their last five and were seen hammering Huesca 6-2 on the road in their first La Liga match of the month. They followed that with a comfortable 3-1 over Alaves last time out in front of their own fans, a result that helped take the sting out of losing to Arsenal in the semi-finals of the Europa League a few days previously. The hat-trick has been marked up as favourite with bookmakers and you’ll get no more than the 4/9 currently being offered by Unibet. That’s tight about an away win but the form is there, and we’ll put it to good use in accas.
