Alaves vs Real Valladolid
Competition – Spanish Primera
Stadium – Estadio Mendizorroza
Date: 19th April 2019
Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT
Real Valadolid will continue their fight to remain in the Spanish top flight when they visit Alaves in this game.
They fought hard for a win in their game against Getafe at the weekend, but still ended up with just a point after the visitors scored a penalty inside added time.
They come into this game in 18th position and they will be looking for a win that could take them up to 15th before other teams play later in the weekend.
The visitor’s recent form doesn’t make for good reading as they have won just one of their last ten games.
What could be more appealing to the ear and maybe good for their confidence is that that win came away from home so just maybe they can get another one in this game.
Alaves were on course to finish inside the top four at the start of the season, but they have since lost that momentum and come into this game 8th in the league table with 7 points separating them from the top four.
A win here is important to their chances of finishing inside a Europa League place at the very least.
Alaves lost their last league game 2-1 at Espanyol and that has been the case in three of their last 4 games.
They have also not won any of their last four home games, so the visitors might just come away with something in this game.
Bookmakers have priced Alaves up as steady odds-against favourites to come out on top in this game while struggling Valladolid will start the game as underdogs.
Goal markets point to a boring game as under 2.5 goals is currently trading heavily odds-on.
This game gets underway at 20:00 BST.
