Our Real Valladolid v Granada predictions, statistics and match poll can be seen below - plus the latest betting odds.
Real Valladolid will be looking for an improved result here after the 1-0 La Liga defeat last time out to Barcelona.
In that game, Real Valladolid managed 32% possession and 7 attempts at goal with 2 on target. FC Barcelona had 25 attempts at goal with 10 on target. Ousmane Dembélé (90') was the scorer for Barcelona.
Real Valladolid have struggled with their forward play in recent times. Their ‘goals for’ figure equals just 4 vs opponents over the course of their last six fixtures. In those games, Pucela have also seen the tally of goals scored against them total 5.
Going into this contest, Real Valladolid are undefeated in their last 2 league matches at home.
Following on from being beaten in their last game against Manchester United in Europa League action, Granada and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
In that game, Granada managed 32% possession and 11 attempts at goal with 3 of them on target. Manchester United got 13 attempts on goal with 2 of them on target. Marcus Rashford (31') and Bruno Fernandes (90') scored for Manchester United.
In the course of their 6 most recent matches, Diego Martínez's Granada have seen their efforts on goal rewarded 5 times thus yielding them the goals scored per game average of 0.83.
Their previous form shows that Granada:
- have not won against Real Valladolid when they've played them away from home in the last 2 league games.
- are without a win away from home in their last 8 league games. Who knows how long it might last, too.
Head to head
Looking at their most recent head to head meetings dating back to 18/05/2014 tells us that Real Valladolid have won 2 of these games and Granada 3, with the tally of drawn games standing at 1.
A combined total of 14 goals were shared by the two clubs during those clashes, with 7 for Pucela and 7 netted by Nazaríes. That’s an average goals per game figure of 2.33.
The last league fixture between these sides was La Liga match day 10 on 22/11/2020 which finished with the scoreline of Granada 1-3 Real Valladolid.
On that occasion, Granada had 59% possession and 16 shots on goal with 6 on target. Their only player on the scoresheet was Domingos Duarte (63').

Team News: Real Valladolid
Jota (Sprained Ankle), Jawad El Yamiq (Tear in the abductor muscle), Fede San Emeterio (Hamstring Injury) and Raúl Carnero (Knee Injury) will not be taking part for Valladolid gaffer Sergio González.
Team News: Granada
Due to a mostly healthy squad, there’s just the sole fitness problem for the Granada boss Diego Martínez to be concerned about. Luis Milla (Muscle Injury) won’t be playing here.
We’re envisaging that Granada may well find it hard to find the net against this Real Valladolid team who should win and very possibly keep a clean sheet.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a narrow 1-0 winning margin for Real Valladolid at the end of the match.
Hoping for a good game.
