Valladolid in desperate need of a win
With four draws in their last five matches, Valladolid have picked up just four points in a very critical time of the season. Valladolid have the most draws in La Liga with 16. It has been a tough season for coach Sergio’s team. All those stalemates in matches have seen Valladolid fight for survival in the La Liga this season.
With three matches still to be played in the season, The White and Violets are just one point above the relegation zone as the battle intensifies between six teams at the bottom to avoid relegation. Valladolid haven’t lost in their last two home matches and they hope to extend that form against Villarreal on Thursday.

Valladolid vs Villarreal Prediction
Valladolid have no other choice than to win this match as a loss here and they could find themselves in deep trouble with two matches remaining. Valladolid have not been scoring too many goals lately and we think defensive tactics by their coach Sergio might restrict their offensive game furthermore.
Villarreal on the other hand might have their mind on the Europa League final, but they need to win here to guarantee a European spot for next season in case they lose the final.
We predict low scoring game for our primary prediction.
