Valencia vs Villarreal Prediction
Valencia returned to losing ways in the La Liga last week after Real Betis made a stunning comeback to post a 2-1 scorecard. The hosts were dismal in that latter matchup, to be frank, and recorded no more than three shots on target as opposed to their counterparts who managed eight.
However, it goes without saying that Valencia have been showing a lot more promise in front of the home crowd this season. Albert Celades’s side are one of the only four teams left to admit defeat on home soil. At the moment, they are currently on a two-match winning streak in all competitions as well.
On the other hand, Villarreal were at the losing end for a second time in a running in their most recent matchup after Celta Viga took them down with a 3-1 scorecard. It is also worth mentioning that Villarreal have been struggling to taste success in their outings this season. The squad have admitted defeat in four of their previous five trips on the road.
Taking into account that they also failed to secure the bragging rights in their last visit here as well, the tag of favorites most certainly goes to Valencia in this one.
Be that as it may, the hosts have shared the spoils in four of their previous seven home games in the La Liga. Hence, a Draw no bet is sizing up to be the safest punt.
Furthermore, despite losing out on the win, the visiting contingent have been consistent in getting their names on the scoresheet in each of their trips on the road. Meanwhile, Valencia have kept a clean sheet just once in their last five games here in the first division.
Considering that Villarreal have also made no mistake in breaching this foe in three of their last five visits here as well, expect both teams to find the back of the net this weekend.
