The campaign started well with a win over Eibar but very little has gone right since then for Francisco's men.
Valladolid – who ended a four-year spell outside the top tier with promotion last season - aren't exactly flying in La Liga themselves. They’re sitting in 13th spot coming into the weekend but are often a tough proposition, especially on the road. With 14 points from 11 matches the underdogs boast the sixth best away record in the division.
Huesca, on the other hand, have the worst home record in La Liga this term (7 points from 10 games), as well as the worst attack and sit second bottom in the defensive standings having leaked 39 times.
The only teams Valladolid have lost to away from home this season are Real Madrid, Sevilla and Levante. Given that they're generally trustworthy on the road, 888Sport's price of 11/8 (2.38) about them in the Draw No Bet market makes some appeal.
This selection sees stakes returned in full if the match ends all square while still offering a tasty potential return if the visitors secure a victory at Estadio El Alcoraz.
Valladolid won the reverse fixture between these teams by a 1-0 scoreline and it looks worthwhile keeping a similar outcome onside in Friday’s clash due to the hosts’ struggles since making the step up to the top tier.
Punters seeking a bigger quote should consider the 23/10 (3.30) on the away win with 888Sport.
