Villarreal vs FC Zurich: Preview and Prediction

Villarreal vs FC Zurich: Preview, Prediction and Betting Tips

Villarreal will be hosting Zurich at Camp El Madrigal, as Villarreal look to continue their new winning form.

Villarreal finished 4th in the last La Liga season, which qualified them for the Champions League qualifiers. Unfortunately, Villarreal lost to Monaco in the playoffs of the Champions League, which demoted them to Europa League group stage. They are seeded into group L against Steaua Bucuresti, Osmanlispor FK and Zurich. The yellow Submarines are favourites to come out top of the group.

Mean while, Zurich were relegated from Swiss Super League last season, they are currently playing in the Swiss challenge Cup. They won the Swiss Cup last season, which qualified them for the Europa League this season. Zurich have been good in the Challenge Cup, they currently on top of the table with 19 points from 7 games. The swiss side are currently on a winning streak and hope to keep the good form.

Villarreal vs FC Zurich: Prediction

Though the home team’s recent form haven’t been rosy, they are still the favourites in this game. They are currently 8th in the La Liga table with 5points from 3 games, they lost both legs of the of UCL playoffs against Monaco.

Zurich are not bad either, they are on a winning streak, and have kept clean sheets in 5 of their last 6 games.

Villarreal will surely win the game, but I expect both teams to have a share of the scoring.
