An equal start to the season for the two teams, who scored five points each. In the same way they came to those points, with one win each and two draws, with one defeat.
Villarreal came up with that only win in the last round, while Valladolid achieved their only triumph in the first round. Last season, Valladolid celebrated this away game with 1-0.
Villareal team news:
Villarreal played effective matches at the beginning of the season and this was especially seen in the first round when they played with Granada 4: 4 at home. After that they lost 2: 1 against Levante, and then they played with Real Madrid 2: 2 and this is still a good result.
At least two goals were received in the first three rounds, just to finally save their net in the fourth and then the first victory came. They won 3: 0 at Leganes, with striker G. Moreno shining with two goals scored. Goalkeeper Asenjo returned, Anguissa was in the midfield and Bacca was on the attack. Now he could get on the bench and Sam on the field and that would be the only change.
Probable lineup: Asenjo – Mario, Raul Albiol, P.Torres, Quintilla – Anguissa, Iborra – Moi Gomez, Cazorla, Samu – G.Moreno
Valladolid team news:
Valladolid started the championship with a win against Betis, but it turned out to be their only triumph so far. The consolation is that they have only one defeat, which they experienced on their third away game.
Levante defeated them 2-0, and in the second they played 1-1 at Real Madrid and that draw has the value of winning. They played their first home game in the last round, but failed to defeat new first-rounder Osasuna.
They had a lead until nine minutes before the end when they received a goal for the final 1-1. They had played with the same squad in the previous two matches, and now S. Ramirez could top the attack.
Probable lineup: Masip – Porro, Olivas, Salisu, Nacho – Waldo, Michel, Alcaraz,Plano – S.Ramirez, S.Guardiola
In the last round, Villarreal showed that they are in good form. Now it is time for their first home win.
Valladolid is coming after the opening triumph anyway, and will be in a subordinate position in this trial, so we forecast Villarreal’s triumph.
