Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
All eyes will be on Estadio Jose Zorilla when Real Valladolid and Leganes lock horns in the Segunda Division derby on Friday evening. La Pucela are eyeing their third consecutive league win and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. Morocco midfielder Anuar limped off with injury in a 3-2 win over Racing Santander, with Lucas Rosa likely to step up. The capital club, on the other hand, came from behind to beat Levante 2-1 in front of home fans.
Leganes are on a five-game winning run in Segunda Division, but beating Valladolid on the road is easier said than done. Taking everything into account, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on draw. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team, while midfielder Julian Chicco misses out through suspension. A man to watch in the away team will be Dani Raba, who scored a beautiful winner against los Levantinos.

Real Valladolid is a Spanish club based in Valladolid, the part of the autonomous community of Castille and Leon. Founded in 1928, Real Valladolid play their home matches at Jose Zorilla, the venue that has the capacity 26,512.
