Competition: Spanish Segunda

Market: Over 1.5 goals

Odds: 4/9 @ Pribet

Two sides who have their sights firmly set on securing a Segunda play-off ticket this season, Real Valladolid will welcome Eibar to the Estadio Jose Zorrilla on Sunday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, making an immediate return to losing ways last weekend as they eventually fell to a 2-0 loss at the hands of Ferrol, Real Valladolid have seen their play-off dreams take a real dent. Despite flying out of the traps when opening up the 2023/24 campaign, Paulo Pezzolano’s men have continued to struggle with their consistency over recent times. Getting March underway with a 2-1 loss against Andorra, the Pucelle have recorded just a trio of wins from any of their previous 12 straight Segunda appearances. With that extended rut stemming all the way back to a 2-1 victory against Amorebieta on December 9th, Valladolid will certainly be excited to make a return to home soil here. Putting in a season-best performance on January 23rd as they stormed their way to a 3-0 romp against Real Oviedo, Sunday’s hosts have collected 10 points from their previous four Segunda showdowns in front of their own supporters.

As for the visitors, although Eibar might still find themselves sat in the driving seat to punch another play-off ticket this season, Los Armeros find themselves in an almost identical position to Sunday’s hosts. Despite being last seen clinching a 2-0 victory against Villarreal B, Joseba Etxeberria’s men have won just a trio of their previous seven Segunda appearances. Signing off February with an action-packed 3-2 defeat at the hands of Espanyol, the former Mirandes boss will know the importance of making a statement of intent here. Although Eibar might have collected just a pair of away victories since the end of October, they will certainly be excited by their most recent showdown against Valladolid. Storming their way to a stunning 5-1 romp when they welcomed the Pucelle to Basque County for their reverse meeting on October 27th, Etxeberria will certainly be calling on a repeat performance here. With all of the last eight meetings between Sunday’s opponents finish with over 1.5 goals, we are expecting a similar outcome.

Bet: Over 1.5 goals at Real Valladolid vs Eibar 4/9 for Sunday’s Segunda matchup @ Pribet
