Villarreal vs Granada
Spain La Liga
Date: Wednesday, 20 January 2021
Kick-Off at 20.30 UK
Venue: Estadio De La Ceramica.
Unai Emery was given a specific task upon his appointment as new Villarreal’s head manger – to battle for top four positions and a spot in UEFA Champions League next season. So far he has done good work.
The Yellow Submarine is 4th with 32 points from 18 games, a couple above other contenders Sevilla and Real Sociedad. They will welcome Granada this Wednesday at De La Ceramica, hoping to take the whole prey.
Visitors have ended the bad streak in La Liga with home 2-0 win against Osasuna on 12th January. Form throughout whole season has been very inconsistent though.
Home victory is currently offered at 1.53 odds, which is a bit lower than we expected. Granada have demonstrated quality in Europa League appearances this season after all.
Villarreal vs Granada Head-to-head
Last season’s head to head clash at this venue was truly spectacular. The spoils were shared after a 4-4 draw.
Four out of the last five h2h’s have ended Under 2.5 goals.
All-time stats are going in favour of Yellow Submarine who have won seven out of twelve encounters, while losing only two (none at this stadium).
Villarreal vs Granada Prediction
Villarreal have made significant progress in Spanish Copa Del Rey recently by eliminating Zamora and Tenerife. Total goal difference in those encounters was 5-1. Fer Nino was goalscorer in both games.
In terms of La Liga appearances, Yellow Submarine has three wins in the last five duels (defeated Osasuna, Levante and Celta Vigo), one loss (vs Sevilla) and one draw against Athletic Bilbao. Overall, there is room for improvement when it comes to away days. The current score at this venue is five wins and four draws.
Emery is surely satisfied with form of his attacking duo. Gerard Moreno and Paco Alcacer scored total of 15 goals so far. Granada have lost more than 50% of their duels on the road so far, so we do feel confident in picking home win as banker bet. Villarreal to win & Both to score is where the value is, but stake obviously should be lower.
