The hosts are already 11 points adrift of safety in La Liga and Friday's visitors look appear overpriced to come out on top at Estadio El Alcoraz

Having been promoted to La Liga for the first time, Huesca's stay in the Spanish top-flight is looking unlikely to be an extended one.

The campaign started well with a win over Eibar but very little has gone right since then for Francisco's men.

Bottom of the league with just 11 points to their name, 888Sport still make Friday's hosts 6/5 (2.20) to beat Real Valladolid.

The visitors could be worth chancing here though. Sergio's side are priced at 23/10 (3.30) to win the match while the draw is available at 11/5 (3.20) with the same firm.

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.
