Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Real Valladolid will be aiming to record their first win of the season when they host Athletic Club at their Estadio Jose Zorilla on Matchday 9. La Pucela made a slow start to the season, but it still early for us to start drawing conclusions. Unlike previous seasons, Valladolid have been struggling at home in the new La Liga campaign, and it has to be noted that they suffered a 2-0 loss to Alaves in their last home game.
The Lions, on the other hand, aim to build on a come from-behind win over Sevilla. The Basques aim to keep on climbing the standings, and seeing that Gaizka Garitano can count on key players for the Valladolid game, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the visiting team. In their last meeting at Estadio Jose Zorilla Athletic Club outclassed Real Valladolid 4-1, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself.
