Villarreal – Valencia, La Liga Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR VILLARREAL - VALENCIA
Villarreal continued to struggle for their survival as the shape dropped once again, and were also disappointed with 2 losses and painful draw with Barca (4-4), with the yellow submarine leading with 2 goals difference a few minutes before the end . As we have seen, however, Villarreal is quite another team in the Europa League. In this tournament, they show a completely different face and still have no loss, so they are definitely far from being doomed against Valencia.
The season is getting better for Valencia and the loss of Vallecano in the last round will not change that. Of course, the main goal of bats is to enter the top 4 and this can happen, but now the focus is on the Europa League. Valencia is definitely a tournament team. Surely they will come out very well prepared and will show their full strength in defense. It is logical for Valencia to try to get the right result for the rematch, because that is exactly what will be the clash – extremely strategic.
It is precisely for this reason and because the two teams know each other very well, we do not expect to see a big spectacle. Maybe in the rematch, but not now. There will be prudence, watching for errors, and very strictness in defense. For this reason, we expect very few goals. What we saw from both teams in the tournament so far has been a game great game in defense. Our prediction here is Under 2.5 goals at 1.74.
- Villarreal have only conceded 4 goals in their last 8 Europa League matches
- Valencia has also conceded just 4 goals in its last 8 Europa League matches
