THE PREDICTION

Valencia’s form remains dismal but there were some positive signs last time out as they managed a draw against Granada. That said, their psychological state remains fragile to say the least as seen by the late equaliser they conceded but they were signs under their caretaker coach that they were fighting. They welcome a Valladolid side that are safe after their win over Alaves and can afford to relax a little now. That could potentially make them more dangerous to play against but there is enough talent in this Valencia side to outplay them and this should be a home win.
