Real Valladolid claimed a much-needed victory in their previous match, and they will be hoping to record a second straight success this weekend to ease any danger of relegation. Girona will be the visitors, as they look for a third win in four matches.
La Liga Preview
Real Valladolid aren’t safe from the threat of relegation just yet, as they remain five points clear from the bottom three. The Spanish side has won just once in their previous five matches. Over that period, they have lost just twice, with two of the matches ending in draws. Valladolid has certainly thrived being at home this season, as they have won six of their 14 matches.
However, it was a rare victory on the road in their previous match that lifted them up the standings. Their 2-1 win at Villarreal was just their second success away from home this season. Selim Amallah opened the scoring after two minutes, before Jawad El Yamiq doubled the advantage with ten minutes of the first half remaining.
Girona currently sits in the top half of the standings, and they could move up to eighth with a victory this weekend. They come into this fixture in solid recent form, as they have recorded two wins from their previous four, with the other two matches during that period ending in draws.
Girona was extremely professional in their previous match, as they recorded a 2-0 win at home against Elche. Valentin Castellanos opened the scoring after 45 minutes, before the points were secured with 20 minutes remaining following Oriol Romeu’s strike.
