Sevilla vs Villarreal Prediction
Sevilla narrowly lost their chance to make it six wins in a row in all competitions the last match-day. They were on the road, and were locking horns with Osasuna. Despite the hosts being a newly-promoted squad, the seasoned veterans from the Sevilla side had to settle for a 1-1 draw at the end of ninety minutes.
Meanwhile, the Yellow Submarines piled on the misery of Atleti the same game week. The former had the home advantage against Diego Simeone’s men, and held them to goalless draw, to share the spoils at the end of the fixture.
The favorite for this match-up is picked up in a rather straightforward process. Sevilla are one of the best teams in the league at the moment. They are placed third in the table, just below Barcelona, and Real Madrid.
Also, do note that, both the top two teams have tough fixtures this upcoming match-day, and then the El Clasico will follow. Suffice it to say, it’s a magnificent opportunity for Sevilla to make it to the top of the table, considering that they are trailing by just three points currently.
Moreover, Sevilla have lost just once this whole league campaign at home, and they are on a long 11-match unbeaten run at the moment. In fact, their last loss had come against Barcelona, and of their three defeats this season, two had come against the titans of the competition – Barca, and Real.
On the other hand, Villarreal are winless in their prior six overall match-ups, and have lost five of their former six games on the road as well. Do also keep note that the Submarines have lost all of their league fixtures away from home, bar two games.
Moreover, Sevilla have been absolutely dominating at this venue in h2h clashes over the years. To quote a stat, they have recorded 14 of the previous 17 wins here, and have lost against this opponent only once in the prior 12 years.
Considering these irrefutable pointers, the hosts Sevilla are massive favorites for this upcoming weekend encounter.
