Team News: Valencia
Valencia manager Javi Gracia has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Jasper Cillessen (Hamstring Injury) and Kévin Gameiro (Muscle Injury) won’t be making appearances.
Our assessment here is that Valencia will need to put in a solid display to hit the back of the net against this Real Valladolid team who will likely gain the upper hand.
We’re therefore seeing a 1-0 winning margin for Real Valladolid at the conclusion of the game.
Should be a close one.
