With more than 20 years spent alternating between La Liga and Segunda, this club is yet to firmly establish themselves as a consistent part of Spain’s top flight.
Under the leadership of coach Sergio Gonzales, though, they’ve been climbing the ranks for the past 5 years. Each of these seasons ended with better results than the last – though with no small amount of controversy in between.
In 2019/20, they made it all the way up to 13the place in the league. If the trend continues, 20/21 might just be the season they break into the Top 10. That said, this part of the table is when teams start being a bit more consistent in their performances, so it’s easier said than done. To illustrate, the La Liga betting odds for a Top 10 Finish for Valladolid are a massive 8.00.
On the flip side, relegation markets are in the range of 2.5 to 3.0, indicating that the bookies are quite pessimistic despite the upwards trend.
Valladolid Key Players
The lack of an effective attack strategy might just be this team’s biggest problem. Though a simple double-pivot approach down the centre might work on weaker opponents, cracking bigger teams requires some creativity.
Midfielder Rubén Alcaraz has proven to be instrumental in delivering the ball to the opposing net so far, though that might change if Sergio figures out a different option.
The transfers Gonzales made over the summer indicate that he’s looking to solve the problem. A perspective left-winger from Benfica, Jota, was brought in on a loan as one option. Additionally, Wolfsberger’s forward Shon Weissman was signed to give their finishing plays a bigger punch.
