Villarreal vs Slavia Prague: Preview and Predictions

Villarreal vs Slavia Prague
UEFA Europa League
Date: 19th October 2017
Kick off at 20:05 UK/ 21:05 CET
Venue: Estadio de la Ceramica (Villarreal).

Villarreal will be looking to grab the victory which would separate them from the rest of the group this Thursday when they host Slavia Prague.

The in-form Czech side is on level terms with the Spaniards after opening two rounds and they’ll be looking to maintain the fine shape and try and stun The Yellow Submarine at Estadio de la Ceramica.

Villarreal

The hosts have been playing hot and cold since the start of the Primera Division campaign, but they will enter this particular match on the back of subsequent wins over Eibar and Girona in the top flight of the Spanish football.

The main responsible for the mentioned successes is the red-hot striker from Congo Cedric Bakambu who bagged each of five Villarreal’s goal in last two La Liga ties.

Bakambu confirmed the spell of excellent form by finding the net for his national team as well in the 1-2 win over Lybia last weekend.

Slavia Prague

Jarosllav Slihavy’s side climbed up to the second position in Czech Liga after back-to-back clean sheet wins over Zbrojovka Brno and Karvina.

Keeping their net untouched for the third time on the bounce will, however, be a massive challenge given Villarreal’s fine attacking form.

Villarreal vs Slavia Prague: Head to head

Villarreal and Slavia Prague have never crossed paths before, but the Spaniards were more than successful when they came up against the opposition from Czech Republic winning five and drawing two of seven previous such encounters.

Villarreal vs Slavia Prague: Prediction

The Yellow Submarine were held to a goalless draw two weeks ago in Israel, but we can’t see such a scenario happening this time out given both team’s fine attacking shape.

Villarreal to win & BTTS is the bet that stands out, while Bakambu to score anytime is a must-take at 6/5.

Villarreal vs Slavia Prague: Bets
