The 2020-21 edition of La Liga is back in action with another fixture this weekend as Valencia take on Real Valladolid at the Jose Zorrilla Stadium on Sunday. Both teams have struggled this season and will want to turn their campaigns around this month.

Real Valladolid are currently in 15th place in the La Liga standings and have been well below their best this season. The home side edged Getafe to a 1-0 victory last weekend and will have to put in a similar performance in this game.

Valencia have suffered a miserable season so far and are in desperate need of a victory at the moment. Los Che were held to a 1-1 draw by Cadiz in their previous game and cannot afford to drop points in this match.

Real Valladolid vs Valencia Prediction

Valencia lost several players in the transfer market last season and have struggled to cope with the demands of La Liga as a result. Los Che have shown glimpses of their potential this year and will need to step up to the plate in the coming months.

Real Valladolid can be effective in the final third and are likely to employ a low block in this game. Valencia have a better squad and are the favourites to win this game.

Prediction: Real Valladolid 1-2 Valencia
