Las Palmas vs Villarreal
Spain – La Liga
Date: Sunday, 11 March 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK
Venue: Estadio de Gran Canaria (Las Palmas de Gran Canaria).
Las Palmas look to have gained the fighting spirit about them of late. They are yet to get a real result, but their displays against the likes of Barcelona and Celta Vigo have definitely been encouraging and the Canaries have strong chances to save the elite class status if they are to keep this level until the end of the season.
Sadly for their fans, the Canaries are still amid a super tough schedule and they are now set to play the top-half Villarreal side. The good news for Paco Jemez and his men is, however, the Yellow Submarine’s form. The visitors are going through a tough period after selling their top scorer Cedric Bakambu as they clearly seem to lack attacking options at this stage of the season.
Javi Calleja’s side has lost three of last four games across competitions without scoring a single goal in these defeats. They were particularly powerless last weekend when they fell 0-2 to the likes of Girona at their Estadio de la Ceramica. Given that Las Palmas have significantly improved their defensive displays of late, we have reasons to believe that this will be another tough trip for the Yellow Submarine.
Las Palmas vs Villarreal: Head-to-head
Villarreal have been slightly more successful over the history and they lead the head to head tie by two wins ahead of landmark 20th encounter with the Canaries.
The Yellow Submarine have picked up a demolishing 4-0 victory when the two teams met in this term of Primera Division back in October last year at Estadio de la Ceramica.
Only one of last five H2h meetings has seen both teams on the scoresheet.
Las Palmas vs Villarreal: Prediction
Las Palmas have lost just one of last four league matches in front of the home crowd and given that Villarreal’s form is seeing a massive slump at the moment, we have to back the home win or draw double chance set at the odds of 1.75.
Since the visitors have been struggling badly for goals lately, we will alternatively take Villarreal to score less than two gaols in the match at 1.66.
