Villarreal vs Getafe
Spain – La Liga
Date: Sunday, 2 May 2021
Kick-off at 15:15 UK/ 16:15 CET
Venue: Estadio de la Ceramica.
The Yellow Submarines are placed seventh in the table – in possession of the final European spot. As of now, they have a lead of four points over the eighth-placed Granada.
If they manage to keep a hold of the seventh position at the end of the campaign, the team would gain an entry into the Europa Conference League.
However, if they are able to climb to the fifth or sixth spot, they could secure a ticket to the Europa League.
Currently they are trailing one point below the sixth-placed Betis, and since the Heliopolitans are going through a struggling stretch of results, Unai Emery’s men have the opportunity to improve their position in the table.
Meanwhile, Jose Bordalas’s men are going through a dismal run. They have a narrow lead over the relegation cut-off, and have been one of the weakest teams in the Spanish top flight all through this campaign.
Going on, the Yellow Submarines also have a superb h2h record against this foe over the years, and have scored in plenty in the process.
For the reasons, expect a Villarreal victory this Sunday at the Estadio de la Ceramica.

Villarreal vs Getafe Prediction
The Yellow Submarines lost 1-2 at home the last match-day, against Barcelona. In the meantime, Bordalas’s men won 0-2 on the road against Huesca.
Going on, Emery’s men had won nine of their former twelve overall games, and they had scored two or more goals in eight of their last twelve matches.
Note that they have also lost just four times at home this whole season, and three of these teams are currently in the top-seven of the table.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in 13 of their past 15 overall fixtures, and they have won just four times on the road since June of 2020.
Taking these observations into account, expect Villarreal to deliver a winning performance this Sunday.
