Relegation battle in Valladolid
Both Valladolid and Elche are in a relegation battle at present and there should be little to separate the sides in this Tuesday’s La Liga encounter at Estadio José Zorrilla.
Valladolid have been able to find something resembling form in recent weeks, winning eight points from their last six games but despite this they still only sit two points above the relegation places and two points above their opponents on Tuesday.
Elche have really struggled in recent weeks, drawing two games in their last six to pick up their only points in that period. They need to find points soon with the sides around them closing the gap as the season enters its second half.
Goals look like they could be a premium in this contest with both sides averaging less than a goal a game this season. Valladolid have managed to score five in their last six and Elche have managed to match that total but both sides have really struggled in the final third. With that in mind we’re predicting this game to have under 2.5 goals.
Valladolid have the better form coming into this game as well as home advantage and, for that reason, we’re forecasting them to pick up a slender but vital 1-0 win.
