Football Bet of the Day: Defences to be rattled in basement battle

Spain football fans
Valladolid's Jose Zorrilla is the only place to be in Spain tonight

"Valladolid have scored in 7/10 home games, with the same fraction delivering BTTS"

Back Both Teams To Score @ 2.166/5 in Valladolid v Huesca

Two bottom-six outfits go head to head in the Friday-night game from La Liga and Tobias Gourlay fancies attacks to outwit defences

In the Netherlands yesterday, Sparta Rotterdam and Twente never really kicked off. In stout defiance of both teams' recent scoring and conceding records, it finished goalless.

We're hoping to find at least a couple of goals in Spain this evening. Today's sole La Liga match brings rock-bottom Huesca to fifth-bottom Valladolid. Valladolid have played 10 home games so far this season, while Huesca have completed 10 away games. Across those matches, they have managed just a single clean sheet between them. We like the odds-against price on both teams to score in this one.

Sergio's Valladolid are a predictably modest W2-D4-L4 at the Jose Zorrilla this term, but they have at least scored in 7/10 of those games, with the same fraction delivering BTTS.

Pacheta's Huesca are winless on the road (W0-D5-L5) but scoring has not been quite the issue you might think. They've found the back of the net in 7/10. We fancy they can find a way through Valladolid's shaky rearguard and help to land BTTS for an eighth time in 11 road trips tonight.
