Looking at Real Valladolid vs Alaves Prediction, Real Valladolid play host to Alaves at Estadio Municipal.
Real Valladolid are back in the top flight of Spanish football, having spent four years in the second division. Surviving more than a year in this elite class competition will certainly be a great success for the team led by Sergio González.
However, they will have a hard task to complete. Their first task is to avoid falling into the relegation zone quickly.
As such, it is not surprising that Valladolid are still looking for their first goal of the season.
On the other hand, the visitors, Alaves were also in the same position after two rounds of the league. However, they can still bag the first goal of the season, in a victory over Espanyol in the third round match.
This goal came only within two minutes, when Borja Baston and Roberto Soriano made sure of a quick comeback , after Baptistao's penalty for Espanyol at the Estadio de Mendizorroza.
Interestingly, based on head to head , Real Valladolid still lead with one victory, ahead of their 20th meeting with Alaves .
This match will be the first meeting of the two teams at the elite level since 2003, since two years ago they have fought in the Segunda Division.
Real Valladolid has managed to strengthen their attack line, by bringing in players like Enes Unal and Duje Cop at the transfer deadline this summer. However, head coach Sergio still needs time to make the attacking duo united.
However, Sergio could be relieved by the solid form of his back line players, which has made Pucela not concede more than 1 goal in their 3 matches so far. They even lost only 1-0 when they hosted the defending champions, Barcelona in Jose Zorrilla.
Given that Alaves also has a solid defense, with only 1 goal conceded in the last 2 La Liga matches, this match is predicted to end in a low score.
