Betting tips for Valencia VS Valladolid 12.01.2019
Valencia and Valladolid come face to face this Saturday afternoon at the Mestalla, in a challenge to count for the 19th round of La Liga. Valencia come here in the hangover of another defeat, this time in the field of Sporting Gijón for the King's Cup, and is still to win in 2019. On the other side comes a Valladolid who has not won any of the last four meetings, of them to the King's Cup, and begins to get too close to the relegation places.
Valencia ranked 11th with 22 points, 4 wins, 10 draws and 4 losses, with 16 goals scored and 16 goals conceded. Compared with last season, Valencia have fallen far short of expectations and then carried out a disappointing campaign, it is still close to places of access to Europe, but their displays do not put Marcelino Toral's team as a candidate to gain access to competitions next season. The team has only one win in the last five matches in national competitions, starting with a draw against Sevilla (1-1) and Eibar (1-1), then beating Huesca (2-1) and losing the last two games, against Alavés (2-1) and Sporting Gijón (2-1), the latter for the first leg of the first knockout round of the King's Cup.
At home it is where the Che have achieved better results, and in 9 games played here this season for the championship the team won 2 and lost only 1, tying the remaining 6, scoring a total of 10 goals scored and 7 goals conceded. However, despite having managed to draw at home against Atletico Madrid and Barcelona, the victories were against the last two two of the Spanish championship, mirroring the disappointing moment of form of Valencia. Gonçalo Guedes and Kondogbia, injured, and Diakhaby, punished, are confirmed low.
O Valladolid, in turn, ranks 15th with 21 points, 5 wins, 6 draws and 7 losses, with 16 goals scored and 20 goals conceded. After beating Real Sociedad (1-2), Valladolid eventually disappointed and failed to win any of the following four consecutive games, losing against Atletico Madrid (2-3), tying on Athletic Bilbao (1- 1) and losing the last two games against Rayo Vallecano (0-1) and Getafe (1-0), the latter for the first leg of the first knockout round of the King's Cup. The Pucelanos who even started the season very well , losing only 2 of the first 10 games of the competition, winning 4, have started to derail since losing to Real Madrid in the 11th round, winning only 1 game since then.
Curiously it is out of doors that the team won more points, since of the 9 games as a visitor in the league, Valladolid won 3 and lost only 2, scoring 8 goals scored and 8 goals conceded. The only defeats as visitors came at the hands of Sevilla and Real Madrid. Sergio has no last minute lows, but players like Nacho, Ruben Alcaraz, Michel and Kiko Olivas are just saying a yellow card to be punished. The team has 4 points above the waterline, and needs to start scoring to build a further distance from the downhill zone.
None of the teams are in good form, with Valencia having been in disappointing form since the start of the season, and newly promoted Valladolid to be in a descending form in the last 8 days. This is the kind of game that may well end up tied, like most matches of the two teams, and believe in a match with few goals to the mix, where if there is a winner, it will be by a minimum margin.
