Gracia: Valladolid strong, but…

Javi Gracia has acknowledged Real Valladolid’s strengths, but says that their home form is something for Osasuna ‘to take advantage of’ this Friday.

Week 14 begins with the Pamplona outfit’s trip out to the Jose Zorilla tomorrow evening with them two points and three places below their opponents.

Even with Osasuna also sat 19th in the table, their Coach is looking for something from this weekend meeting.

“Valladolid are a team that in the initial phase of play are combative,” Gracia has stated to reporters today.

“They are bold, brave, deep, with much impact from the wings, much strength and attractive.

“But, in all but one of their home games so far they have conceded two goals, so there will be advantages and disadvantages for us to consider.

“We come into this game looking to better than recent results and we are looking for the victory. This is a good chance against an opponent that is close in the standings.”
