Villarreal are quite unlucky. They have had a good season in this year's Champions League (knocked out only on wednesday by Arsenal) and they were on course to participate next year again, but now in the most important stages of the season they have lost their most important players due to injuries. Santi Cazorla is out for the rest of the season and Marcos Senna is out for some weeks too.
Valladolid are 9th in the Primera Divsion what might seem a comfortable position, but they are only 9 points clear of the relegation zone, so after having lost their 3 most recent matches (against the best teams in Spain Barcelona, Real Madrid and Sevilla) they will really try to win this one. At home they mostly play well (record 8-2-5) while Villarreal has problems on the road (record 4-6-5). Interestingly Valladolid won the reverse fixture in November 3-0 (!). Certainly it won't be easy for Valladolid to beat a 'big' team, but we believe they can do it and see a lot of value in the best odds of 2.40 at Paddy Power.

Back Valladolid @ 2.40
Valladolid were slightly better but a bad refereeing decision (unjustified penalty and red card) decreased the chances for this bet to go through ...
