Real Valladolid vs Real Betis Preview

Two bottom half but safe sides meet on the final weekend at the Jose Zorrilla. Truth be told, this is far from the most interesting game on the final weekend but it does feature two sides who are directly battling for position. A Real Valladolid win would see them leapfrog Betis and potentially condemn the Seville club to their worst top flight finishing position since they were relegated last in 2013/14.

Real Valladolid meanwhile will be very pleased with their efforts again this season. They can start planning for a 3rd straight top flight campaign in 2020/21 and Sergio continues to work wonders on a limited budget. Again defensive foundations have been the key to their success and they head into the final weekend with the 7th best defensive record in the division.

They have kept clean sheets in 30% of their league games this term, a ratio that increases to 39% at home and with that kind of record, they are always in with a chance in games. Their January signing of Hatem Ben Arfa didn’t pay off but with Fabian Orellana arriving this summer, they will hope to have a bit more in the final third next season to potentially push on further towards mid-table.

As for Betis, it has been a second successive season where they’ve basically failed to live up to expectations. It never quite happened for Rubi who felt like a dead man walking for most of the campaign but there is a degree of cautious optimism with the experienced Manuel Pellegrini taking over this summer.

Betis head into this game following a 2-1 home defeat against Alaves and in truth you sense their players will be glad to just get this game out the way and start a fresh after the summer break.

Real Valladolid vs Real Betis Predictions

Score Prediction: 1-0 Valladolid

Neither side take any form into this with Real Valladolid having lost their last 3 and Betis their last 2. This will have an end of season feel but it’s hard to really fancy a Betis side that has the 2nd worst away record in LaLiga with just a single road win all season. Real Valladolid may just nick it but it’s unlikely to be a classic.
