Sevilla vs Villarreal
Spain – La Liga
Date: Saturday, 14 April 2018
Kick-Off at 12:00 UK
Venue: Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan (Sevilla).
Sevilla are back to domestic affairs on Saturday when they host Villarreal in the direct clash for the Europa League spot next term. Los Rojiblancos could not do much to threaten Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarterfinal losing 1-0 on aggregate. However, we have to praise them for a decent performance in the rematch at Allianz Arena where Vincenzo Montella’s men kept their net untouched in a goalless draw.
The team thus quickly forgot the humiliating 4-0 defeat they had suffered last weekend away at Celta Vigo. Overall, Sevilla struggled with their form in the most recent set of ties in Primera Division. They only took a single point in last four league games conceding two or more goals in each of the matches during the process. Interestingly, the only point came from the match against table-toppers Barcelona.
Sevilla generally tend to play much better against stronger opponents and we can expect them to be highly motivated to put on a decent effort against Villarreal here-.The visitors will also come into this low on confidence after losing back-to-back league games to Malaga and Athletic Bilbao. Additionally, the Yellow Submarine has struggled for results in fixtures away from Estadio de la Ceramica. They lost five, drew one and won one of last seven matches on the road in all competitions.
Sevilla vs Villarreal: Head-to-head
Trips to Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan have never been a pleasant occasion for Villarreal.
Sevilla won 13, drew 3 and lost only 2 of 18 home outings against Villarreal.
Los Rojiblancos came on top when the two teams met in this term of La Liga, clinching a 2-3 victory away at Estadio de la Ceramica.
Sevilla vs Villarreal: Prediction
Sevilla are worth backing to clinch the spoils at the 1.85 odds because of the dominance in H2H clashes with Villarreal and the fact the Yellow Submarine have really been struggling with the form on the road recently.
We will alternatively back the hosts to net two or more goals at the odds of 1.72 here.
