Valladolid hosts Elche in round 19 of Spanish LaLiga. The match will be played on Tuesday, January 19th at Estadio José Zorrilla (Valladolid)
Valladolid is one of the poorest teams in the division. But they have Sergio Gonzalez Soriano, a specialist with whom the team manages to squeeze the maximum out of the modest capabilities. It seemed that everything could end badly because the start of the current championship was failed - five defeats and only three points scored after eight matches. But in January, Valladolid was quite active in gaining points, and a draw with Cadiz and a 1-0 victory over Getafe allowed the team to break away from the relegation zone. However, after that, Pucelanos lost to a direct competitor, Valencia, at home (0:1). But they won their last cup match with a score of 4-1.

Elche is in the relegation zone, but the situation is not critical. The Green-striped ones are gaining one point per match on average, just like their next opponent. However, Valladolid has already held 18 meetings in this Temporada, and the newcomer has only 16. But it's far from certain that these postponed matches will bring positive results. After all, Jorge Almiron's charges pleasantly surprised their fans only at the start, until October. They even had a streak with 10 out of 12 points scored in four rounds. But they have not won in the championship for more than 2.5 months. By the way, Elche played its last match only on Saturday, that is, it had less time to rest than its opponent had. At the same time, the team's shape is clearly not great. Elche lost both LaLiga matches in 2021 (a minimal away defeat to Athletic and a 1:3 home loss to Getafe).
In the last eight head-to-head meetings, the team that played at home did not lose. But the clubs did not cross their paths after the 2016/2017 season. By the way, then they exchanged home victories. Valladolid gradually gained shape. Elche has not won since November, and its results only got worse. We recommend betting on the victory of the hosts.
Prediction for the match: Valladolid to win
