Match Preview

Yet to score inside the first 15 minutes of any La Liga (LL) match, and still threatened by relegation, Valladolid’s home form has been particularly uninspiring. Ahead of kick-off, the ‘Pucelle’ have been losing at half-time and full-time in their last three matches here, failing to win at home since early October (D2, L3).
Valladolid clearly need to rethink the way they start matches. They have opened the scoring just four times, and have led at half time on just three occasions (W3, D9, L8). Consequently, they have a dreadful first-half goal difference (GD) of -7, which stood as the third-worst in LL going into this round.
Given Valladolid’s poor home form, Celta Vigo are the ideal visitors for them. They have returned a lacklustre record of: W1, D1, L4, from their last six away games, and conceded two or more goals in their last six LL away matches.
Composure is also another major issue for Celta Vigo on the road. Across all competitions, six of their last seven away matches have seen them go on to concede again – without reply in between the first two opposition goals – after conceding their first goal in the match.
Players to watch: Rubén Alcaraz (Real Valladolid) is averaging 3.8 tackles per home game (equal-best in the league) and will be up against Celta Vigo ace Maxi Gómez, who has been involved in goals in five of his last ten LL appearances.
Stat attack: Real Valladolid’s last four LL games have all seen under 2.5 total goals scored.
Both teams have scored in all but one of Celta’s nine away LL matches.
Expect late drama, as 25% of the 40 goals scored or conceded by Valladolid have fallen inside the 76th-90th+ minute period.
Meanwhile, 11 goals have been scored in the last 15 minutes of Celta Vigo’s away matches.
