Villarreal vs Las Palmas: Preview and Predictions

Villarreal vs Las Palmas
Primera Division
Date: 22nd October 2017
Kick off at 11:00 UK/ 12:00 CET
Venue: Estadio de la Ceramica (Villarreal).

Cedric Bakambu inspired Villarreal’s back-to-back wins over Eibar and Girona in last two rounds netting each of the team’s five goals during the process.

Can he continue his spell of excellent form on Sunday morning when The Yellow Submarine host Las Palmas at Estadio de la Ceramica?


Villarreal were close o dropping the ball in Europa League where they conceded two early goals against Slavia Prague, but they fought their way to a 2-2 draw at the end to preserve the top spot in their respective group.

The manager Javi Calleja rested Bakambu giving Carlos Bacca an opportunity to find his top shape. The Colombian striker took advantage of it notching the equalizer as the team will generally come into the clash with the Canaries in high spirits.

This can’t be said for the visitors who will have a mountain to climb in order to save the top flight status at the end of the season.

Pako Ayesteran’s men will head into this on the back of four consecutive losses in La Liga and after allowing as many as five in a demolishing home loss to Celta Vigo on Monday.
