- Huesca have drawn 10 of their 20 La Liga fixtures this season.
- Real Valladolid have won only two of their 10 La Liga home matches this term.
- Real Valladolid and Huesca shared the spoils when they faced off back in October.
Share of the spoils likely in Valladolid
Two of La Liga’s bottom five face off at the Estadio Municipal José Zorrilla on Friday evening, where a share of the spoils between two well-matched teams looks the likeliest outcome.
Valladolid blew a two-goal lead to finish level with Huesca when the teams last faced off in October, and the evidence suggests the La Liga strugglers could be difficult to separate again in Friday’s return fixture.
Bottom club Huesca are the division’s draw specialists this season, and remarkably, the relegation candidates have drawn 10 of their 20 La Liga matches in the 2020/21 campaign so far.
Those ties have been evenly split between Huesca’s home and away games this term, and with that pattern well established, backing the draw again on Friday looks an avenue of approach worth taking.
Valladolid have been nervous hosts all too often this season, and having won just twice in 10 La Liga home games since August, we can see them struggling to break down a defensive Huesca team this week.
Indeed, goals are likely to be thin on the ground at both end when two of the league’s least prolific teams face off, and with Valladolid averaging 1.1 goals per home game and Huesca averaging 0.9 goals per 90 minutes on their travels this season, a 1-1 correct score prediction looks an outcome worth pursuing.
