THE PREDICTION

Real Valladolid are unbeaten in their last two home matches as they scrap for survival in La Liga and face an erratic Athletic Club side who are chasing a top-six finish. There have been under 2.5 goals in five of Valladolid's last seven home league games, so another low-scoring game is in prospect.
