ℹ️ Team News: UD Almería
There is just the sole fitness concern for the UD Almería boss Joan Rubi to be concerned with from an otherwise fully-primed group of players. El Bilal Touré (Muscle Injury) misses out.
In all likelihood, UD Almería should go for a 4-2-3-1 system this time, utilising Fernando Martinez, Alejandro Pozo, Rodrigo Ely, Srdjan Babic, Sergio Akieme, Cesar de la Hoz, Gonzalo Melero, Adrian Embarba, Lucas Robertone, Largie Ramazani and Lazaro.
ℹ️ Team News: Real Valladolid
Real Valladolid boss Paulo Pezzolano has a number of players out of action. Anuar (Cruciate Ligament Injury), Selim Amallah (Shoulder fracture) and Luis Pérez (Adductors avulsion) miss out here.
From our viewpoint, Pucela might play in a 4-3-3 formation, settling for Jordi Masip, Ivan Fresneda, Martin Hongla, Javi Sanchez, Lucas Olaza, Alvaro Aguado, Roque Mesa, Oscar Plano, Gonzalo Plata, Cyle Larin and Darwin Machis.
We feel that over the course of the game, Real Valladolid will have to play well to break down this UD Almería team who we think will likely score & stay on top.
We’ve gone for a highly competitive game with a 1-0 advantage for UD Almería at the end of the 90.
Hoping for a good game.
