S. Gijon - position 12, points 32, GD 26:28; 8-8-8
Real Valladolid are chasing promotion back to La Liga, and have built their fine recent form upon a superb home record. The White and Violets, owned by Brazilian striking legend Ronaldo, have won their last seven home league games, keeping five clean sheets and conceding just twice during that run. Valladolid have also won five of their last seven league games, and only five teams in the 22-team Segunda division boast a better defensive record. At home, their rearguard has been even more fearsome; Valladolid have only conceded six goals in 12 home league games this term.
Visiting Sporting Gijon, meanwhile, are on a strong run of their own, going six league games unbeaten since losing to Las Palmas in early December. However, they have only won one of their last seven away league games, and have only found the net six times during those recent road trips.
