Sevilla vs Villarreal Prediction
Sevilla has been unbeaten in their recent three fixtures in the league with just one draw in it. The host enjoys the ground advantage in the game, but a two-game winless streak at home holds them back in the upcoming fixture.
In addition to that, Villarreal has also been unbeaten in their recent five encounters in the campaign. Their only drawback is the number of draws in that streak. Even though the away team has a shaky defense in the middle, they are still capable of taking at least a point in the match.
With both teams’ current form in the campaign and the scoring spree, we can expect a couple of goals in ninety minutes at Sevilla. So, the tip for over 1.5 goals will probably be the best bet for the punters in the encounter.
The double chance favoring Villarreal will probably be the ideal choice considering there is a good chance for the teams to share the spoils in the clash. Besides, the host hasn’t been the best at home in recent attempts in the league.
Sevilla vs Villarreal Betting tips
Over 1.5 goals @ 1.40 (2/5).
