Villarreal vs Valencia
Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 5th May 2018
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Estadio de la Ceramica (Villareal).

Consecutive home wins placed Villarreal right back into the Europa League group stage qualification zone. Still, they need to keep the momentum going as Sevilla despite sitting at 8th in the table can through them out of the zone. The teams are separated by 7 points with 4 games each left to play. So, the team in yellow need to bag another 7 points from their remaining games. Bad for them as their last two games of the campaign is against Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Valencia, on the other hand, got their winless streak stretched to 4 games with the goal-less home draw against Eibar last week. It has been a long wait for them to confirm the tickets to Champions League next season. All they need to do is secure three points from their remaining three games as Betis just behind them is at an 8-point gap.

Villarreal vs Valencia: Head-to-head

  • Villarreal won 4 of the last 5 meetings with Valencia, lost the other.
  • Five of their last six meetings saw under 2.5 goals.
  • However, Valencia had won twice in their last three visits to Villarreal, but haven’t won in any of their previous 7.

Villarreal vs Valencia: Prediction

Despite some underwhelming performances lately, the yellow submarines have a decent record at their own backyard. But Valencia can be a big threat with the team looking to get back to winning ways after a barren run of four games. Besides, the visitors have scored in each of their last 9 away games. And Villarreal do not have a secure defense and have conceded in each of their last 5 home games. So, this will be a close game to call and the better bet is both teams to score.
