Visitors also claimed no more than one point from past three league matches. They were so unlucky to concede a last-gasp stoppage-time goal on Sunday in what ended as a 2-2 draw to Champions League hopefuls Getafe at their Estadio Municipal Jose Zorrila.
Pucela enjoyed a solid spell of form previously with a 1-2 win at Eibar, a 1-1 draw to Real Sociedad. They then went on to lose back-to-back fixtures against Leganes and Sevilla without scoring a single goal in the process.
Alaves were very tough to break down in front of the home crowd throughout the entire season. They conceded only 13 goals and lost just 2 of 15 league games at Estadio de Mendizorroza. Valladolid only scored 12 goals in 16 matches on the road this season. We will thus back the Under 2.5 goals FT as the main betting option at 1.53, while you can also try with Alaves to keep a clean sheet at 2.20.
Alaves have only lost 2 of their last 16 home league games, which is a measure of the task that Valladolid are faced with here. The visitors haven’t been great travellers since the turn of the year and have lost 5 of their last 6 on the road in La Liga. Their overall form is a concern too with just 2 wins in 17 league outings. With the division’s worst goal-scoring record, there’s an argument for saying that they are the worst team in the league, with Huesca and Rayo Vallecano beneath posing much more of an attacking threat.
With home advantage, backing Alaves to Win could be the way to go here, although it’s unlikely to be a classic.
