Villarreal vs Sevilla Prediction & Betting tips
In La Liga this season has been particularly exciting so far. This is because the power density in the Spanish league seems particularly high this season. Thus, there are some clubs that surprise very positive and other clubs that are unusually far back in the table. On Sunday, spectators at the Estadio de la Ceramica can look forward to a duel between Villarreal and Sevilla. A forecast seems to be easy at first glance due to the table situation.
Villarreal CF are still surprisingly on a relegation zone, while the visitors from Andalusia are in the Champions League. However, Villarreal usually has a significantly higher performance, as shown in the Europa League’s away win at Sporting Lisbon this week. Sevilla were also challenged on the European stage and made an excellent starting position for next week’s return leg with a 1-0 win away to Lazio. In the league Villarreal is four points behind a non-relegation zone and is thus extremely under pressure. The decisive factor in this game should also be the state in which the teams present themselves after the performances at European level.
Villarreal belonged to the top teams in La Liga last season and ended up with an excellent fifth place in the table. It is therefore even more surprising that the yellow submarines have such massive problems this season in the Spanish league. This led in the meantime to the dismissal of trainer Calleja. Under his successor Luis Garcia, but it did not get better and Villarreal won from six games only disappointing four points. This led to a curious situation at the end of January, when the president rescinded Luis Garcia after only 50 days and brought back his predecessor Calleja.
Under the new / old head coach Villarreal showed on penultimate round in a home game against Espanyol Barcelona a good performance. At first, there was a lot of hope for a home victory for the submarines, because after about an hour, Villarreal were already leading 2-0 with goals from Iborra and Cazorla. An own goal by Bonera and another goal in the closing stages, it was enough at the final whistle but only to a 2-2 draw.
Sevilla are in a neat fourth place in La Liga at the end of the season for the Champions League. Accordingly, those responsible are certainly satisfied with the overall development under coach Pablo Machin. Things are not going well for Sevilla this year in the league. From six completed games, the Andalusians won only one win and two draws. On the other hand, they lost in 2019 already three defeats in La Liga.
Their only success came at the end of January, when Sevilla were in a frenzy against Levante, scoring a 5-0 victory with goals from Ben Yedder and Promes, among others. On the next match day, however, the performance at Celta Vigo was again significantly worse and the Sevilla FC conceded a narrow defeat at the Galicians. Sevilla lost 2-0 at home to Eibar last weekend, but were beaten 2-1 by goals from Wissam Ben Yedder and Pablo Sarabia in the final minutes.
On Sunday, the Andalusians have to play abroad at the scoring Villarreal CF. There, Pablo Machin and his team want to polish their away record with the fourth away win in the league. During the week Sevilla impressed in the Europa League in the away game at Lazio and gave a great starting position for the return leg by a 1-0 win. Coach Machin can not bet on the injured Nolito. It also does not look too good for the injured Parreu and Arana.
Last weekend, Villarreal could not convince promoted Valladolid and left in a goalless draw important points in the relegation battle lie. A lot of confidence Villarreal should have fueled on Thursday in the Europa League. Finally, they prevailed in the first leg of the sixteenth final at Sporting Lisbon with 1: 0.
Now it applies to the table-19. but first of all, to focus fully on the next task in La Liga. However Villarreal is the weakest home team in the Spanish league with only one victory in their own stadium. Bruno Soriano will probably miss Sunday because of his knee problems.
