Valladolid is one of the strongest clubs in Segunda, with a quality roster on level to Primera teams. They come from a difficult 1:0 victory against Leganes and win the 4th match in a row. The main priority is promotion to LaLiga with only 5 points away from 1st place Almeria and good 8-2-1 record at home. Coach Pacheta said the he will make some rotations, but have a competitive team, who can be really dangerous to the porous Betis defense. Betis was out of rhythm against Celta Vigo and that was visibly due too heavy problems with positive players on Covid 19. They are in third place in the standings in LaLiga, and the away match against Rayo Vallecano follows on Sunday. Manager Pellegrini will make many changes in the first eleven possible. Due to various reasons, out of the squad are William Jose (16/5), Pezzella (9/1), Joaquin (9/0), Bravo (7/0), Montoya (6/0), Miranda (6/0), Rober (4/0), and Akouokou (3/0). Valladolid is a very good team for the level of Segunda and scores close to two goals per game, and should give their best to secure their place in the 1/8 finals.
