Valencia vs Villarreal
Spanish La Liga.
Date: Saturday, 26th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Estadio de Mestalla (Valencia).
The relegation placed Villarreal will be in action this Saturday as they welcome the Bats in LaLiga.
Los Che is 9th in the league table with 11 of their matches being draws. Scoring has not been on point, so has defended. A win would get them 7th spot depending upon other results. Two wins and losses have come for them in their last 5 competitive games. Over 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of those matches across all venues.
Clean sheets are hard to come by for the Bats, with none of their last 7 league matches giving them one. With 6 wins included, an 8 match unbeaten run is active for them at home. Three of their last 5 games were high scoring matches with only one game being a clean sheet.
Nobody knows what has happened to the yellow submarine. The team which finished 5th last season are not able to win a game this season. With just 18 points in 20 matches, they lie at the bottom of the table. A 7 match winless run is going on for the team in yellow across all venues. More than 2.5 goals were scored in 6 of their last 7 matches in all competitions.
Another disappointing 11 matches winless run, most of them being draws, is going on in away matches. If the coach Luis Garcia cannot come up with a remedy for this poor run of form, we may not see them next season.
Valencia vs Villarreal: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The yellow submarine has won 3 of the last 5 h2h clashes against this opposition.
- Less than 2.5 goals were scored in 4 of those 5 games played across all venues.
- Villarreal has won three matches on the trot against the hosts at this venue.
- Fewer than 2.5 goals were scored in 4 of those 5 previous h2h matches here.
Valencia vs Villarreal: Prediction
The hosts are looking strong at home considering their 8 matches unbeaten run. But the last 3 h2h matches here saw them lose to the team in yellow. In the last 11 away matches for Villarreal, 7 were draws. With both these facts in front of us, I think we will see both teams share the spoils on Saturday. Thus a bet can be placed for a draw with 3.60 odds.
Even though they are at the bottom Villarreal are scoring just above a goal per game. The hosts have found goals in 9 of their last 10 competitive games as well. So we can place our bets on both teams scoring in this game with 1.80 odds.
