Rapid Wien vs Villarreal Prediction & Match Preview

Rapid Wien vs Villarreal
Europe – UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 8th November 2018
Kick-off at 17.55 UK/ 18.55 CET
Venue: Allianz Stadion, Vienna.

Austrian team Rapid Vienna hosts Villareal in the fourth matchday proceedings for Group G in the Europa League.

This group is one of the most tightly contested ones in the competition so far. All four teams are still in the hunt for the top two spots. Villareal, though the group toppers, has only posted 5 points from their three matches. Rangers, too have five points and are on the second spot, owing to their inferior goal difference.

Villareal has a goal difference of +5. They have scored ten goals while conceding five in return. The reverse fixture, which Villareal won for 5-0, shot them to the top over Rangers.

As competition gets tougher, Villareal will see this as a chance to gain three more points and to improve their goal difference further.

Rapid Vienna has won one match and lost two. They have three points on the board. Their sole win came against Spartak Moscow, possibly the worst of the four. Vienna has scored just three goals and has conceded eight.

Rapid Wien vs Villarreal Prediction

Villareal won the reverse fixture with absolute authority over the team from Vienna. An own goal by Rapid Vienna and four different goalscorers completed the formality then.

As Group G gets embroiled in fierce competition, Villareal will realize this match as an opportunity to easily secure three points and to put further distance between themselves and other teams in the case of goal difference.

Expect Villareal to easily win this match. Once again Rapid Vienna will have no chance or answer against the quality of a top team from La Liga, quite easily one of the top two domestic leagues in the world, along with the English Premier League.

Villareal will win both the halves.

Over 2.5 match goals is an alternative bet for someone willing to take a little bit of risk, but strictly in singles @ 1.80 (4/5).
