  • Venue: Estadio Municipal José Zorrilla (Valladolid)

Recently promoted Real Valladolid and Almeria come face to face at the Estadio Municipal José Zorrilla on Monday for the first La Liga meeting between these sides since 2014.

Almeria, back in La Liga for the first time since 2015, arrives in Valladolid boosted by a fine 2:1 win against Sevilla last weekend however, Umar Sadiq, the match winner in that fixture, has since departed for Real Sociedad on the final day of the transfer window. 

Valladolid, returning to the top flight after a one-year absence, comes into this fixture having taken just 1 point from a tough opening run of fixtures which has seen them lose 3:0 at home to Villarreal and 4:0 at Barcelona, although they also managed to take something from Sevilla, holding the Andalusians to a 1:1 draw on their travels.

Real Valladolid vs Almeria Betting Tips - BTTS

Having briefly slipped into Segunda Division for one season, both teams made instant returns to La Liga, with Almeria edging Valladolid to the title on goal difference, with both finishing the season locked together on 81 points. 

Now back in the big time, Almeria have made a more positive start to life in the big league, although Valladolid have certainly had a tough run facing 3 of last season's top 6 in their opening matches.

A tough fixture to call, last season's meetings between these sides were attacking and entertaining affairs with a 2:2 draw played out when they last met at this arena in April. Almeria claimed a 3:1 win in the reverse fixture in November of last year. Going back a little further, 6 of the last 8 meetings between these sides saw BTTS, including each of the last 4.

Indeed, there has been little to split these sides historically, with 9 of their last 14 league meetings over the past 13 years finishing level, and a similar outcome looks to have a good chance here.

Given the entertaining nature of last season´s meetings between these promoted sides, we expect another back-and-forth contest with goals at both ends having a decent chance at attractive over even odds. Almeria have also seen BTTS in each of their opening 3 league fixtures.

Ultimately, with little to split them last season, and historically, a scoring draw would seem to be the likeliest outcome for this Monday night La Liga fixture.
