Athletic Bilbao may have to resort to second choice players, given the number of first choice players that are now unavailable through injury, illness or suspension.

Real Valladolid’s campaign so far has seen them accrue 17 points this season

Another victory would be a terrific achievement, but that is what Pacheta will be asking from his team, as they go into this game on the back of strong results after beating Elche 2-1 and Osasuna 2-0

Also, Valladolid keep finding ways to win, having secured three victories in their last four fixtures is astonishing this season. Now they have 5 matches won, 6 games lost and 2 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in tenth place, with a total of 17 points having won five matches, drawn two meetings, and lost six games.

With a poor record on the road, which amounts to one win, one dart, and four losse, it is hard to predict a positive outcome for Valladolid as they travel once more.

A victory for Real Valladolid would put them on 20 points.

It is likely that five key players will miss Tuesday’s fixture, which is something of a concern for Pacheta and his Valladolid team.
