Villarreal performed well during the past season. And the final fifth place in the standings is a display of their excellent play.
What concerns style of play, the team looked much better in the attack, but not always perfectly acted in the defense. Be that as it may, fans of ‘yellow submarine’ are obviously more interested in the current success of their beloved team.
For the time being, the team doesn’t seem to be leading. This season Villarreal may boast only 14th place in the intermediate results table and 4 points gained in 4 matches.
Interestingly, the bookmakers prediction for the upcoming match is in favor of Javier Kalihi wards. However, this is not due to a great Villarreal performance but because the Valencians are currently far from the best shape.
Valencia proved to be excellent in the past game year, but the current season is not so successful for them.
They are on the 18th place in the standings and the difference of goals scored-conceded is not the most outstanding (3-5).
Valencians failed to fight adequately with Juventus in the recent European Cup match (0:2). Therefore, the loss was quite obvious.
As in many past matches of the season, that evening Valencia absolutely nothing turned out in counterattacks, although before it was the undoubted trump card of the Spanish team.
Villarreal: Asenjo, Mario, González, Ruiz, Costa, Trigueros, Raba, Layun, Morlanes, Moreno, Toko-Ekambi.
Valencia: Neto, Vezu, Murillo, Paulista, Gaia, Parejo, Soler, Vass, Gedesh, Rodrigo, Batshuayi.
Our prediction for the upcoming match is in favor of zero handicap for Villarreal because of several reasons:
- Villarreal act much better at home than away.
- Valencians are not in the best shape at the moment.
- Villarreal consistently won in the last 3 head-to-head meetings.
If you check by names, Valencia certainly look like a favorite in this meeting. However, if we take into account the current shape of both teams and other nuances before the match, our bet has all chances to succeed.
