Team News: Real Valladolid
Marcos André (Achilles tendon problems), John Victor (muscular problems) and Javi Sánchez (Muscle injury) are not available for Real Valladolid manager Paulo Pezzolano.
It’s our opinion that Pucela should use the 4-1-4-1 system with Jordi Masip, Luis Pérez, Flavien Boyomo, David Torres, Sergio Escudero, Stanko Juric, Ivan Sanchez, Víctor Meseguer, Monchu, Anuar and Mamadou Sylla.
Team News: Leganés
Due to a completely healthy group available to choose from, the Leganés manager Borja Jiménez has no fitness worries to speak of ahead of this match.
We are inclined to think that Leganés seem likely to make use of a 5-3-2 system with a starting lineup of Diego Conde, Jorge Miramon, Aritz Arambarri, Jorge Sáenz, Sergio González, Enric Franquesa, Iker Undabarrena, Luís Perea, Seydouba Cissé, Daniel Raba and Miguel de la Fuente.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Leganés will have to perform well to score against this Real Valladolid lineup who will likely manage to score & go ahead.
We’re therefore seeing a good battle with a 1-0 winning score for Real Valladolid at the end of this game.
