Our man in Spain believes neither of these struggling sides will be able to keep a clean sheet in Monday's encounterOne win in 13 games means Real Valladolid are one of the most out-of-form teams in the Primera Division.
It is this stark fact which underlines the severity of the problems facing Juan Ignacio Martinez's side ahead of the visit of Celta Vigo this evening.
It should also be stressed that the visitors themselves are far from firing on all cylinders, with Celta just two points above the relegation zone. Both teams then could really do with a win, and bet365 price a home victory at 7/5 (2.40) while the away side are offered at 2/1 (3.00).
It is worth pointing out that Celta have been finding the back of the net of late, and their total of 20 goals scored is the highest in the bottom half of the table.
The Galicians have netted six times in their last two league games, with those goals coming from six different players. Against a Valladolid side that has kept just one clean sheet in their last 11 matches, the team from Vigo will fancy their chances of scoring.
While the hosts have been unreliable at the back they do have some quality upfront with the trio of Manucho, Patrick Ebert and Javi Guerra more than capable of creating and taking chances. Both teams to score is offered at 8/11 (1.72) and has paid out in three of Valladolid's last four home matches.
With Celta having scored in each of their last four away fixtures there is every chance we should see goals at both ends.
