Competition: Spanish Segunda

Market: Real Valladolid win

Odds: 19/20 @ 1xBet

Looking to widen their buffer in the play-off chase, Real Valladolid will welcome Levante to the Estadio Jose Zorrilla on Saturday lunchtime.

Starting with the hosts, while Real Valladolid might have lost their La Liga status last season, Paulo Pezzolano’s side have their sights firmly set on securing an immediate top-flight return. Making a real statement prior to March’s international break as they stormed their way to a 3-1 romp against Eibar, the Pucelle mark their return from the fortnight break sat just two points adrift of breaking into the automatic promotion spots. Suffering just a single defeat from any of their previous 10 Segunda appearances – a run that stems back to January 13th – Valladolid have also continued to gain a reputation for their success on home soil. Including a 2-0 victory against Zaragoza earlier in the month, Pezzolano’s side have won all of their last three contests at the Estadio Jose Zorrilla by an aggregate score of 8-1. Likewise, it should also be highlighted, Saturday’s hosts have collected 13 points from their previous five Segunda showdowns in front of their own supporters.

As for the visitors, although Levante might have entered March’s international break with an action-packed 3-2 victory against Elche, the Frogs have continued to struggle with their consistency this season. Facing what appears to be a real uphill battle in their bid to clinch another play-off ticket this year, Felipe Minambres’ men have recorded just a pair of victories from any of their previous 10 Segunda appearances – a run that stems back to January 13th. Opening March with a 3-2 loss at the hands of Levante, Saturday’s guests have also continued to show a string of issues on the road. Including a 2-1 defeat against Espanyol last month, Levante have failed to muster a single Segunda victory outside of Valencia since the start of October. It should also be noted, Minambres’ side have not recorded back-to-back wins over the past five months. Facing what will be s tern challenge this weekend, we are backing a home victory here.
