Villarreal vs Sevilla Prediction & Betting tips
Five teams compete in Spain’s La Liga for the Champions League – two of them will meet in a direct duel for the qualification for the premier class on Monday: Villarreal (7th place) receives Sevilla FC (3rd place). The last hunter meets the first hunted, seen in tabular form.
The two teams are separated by only five points. If Villarreal wins a home win, the Submarinos Amarillos will be fully involved in the fight for the Champions League.
It is therefore no wonder that the duel between Villarreal and Villarreal vs. Seville is completely balanced in terms of betting odds – it’s an eye-to-eye and a knife-edge game that involves a lot – only rivals Atletico Madrid, Getafe and Real Sociedad would benefit from a tie.
Villarreal, in particular, will definitely play for victory in the slipstream of the teams mentioned, with three points you could even overtake Getafe and Real Sociedad in the table, the situation up there in La Liga is so narrow – like a look at the table in the Primera Division clarifies.
Three games, three 1-0 wins, nine points – Villarreal is already sniffing the Champions League places. That is Villarreal’s flawless yield after the La Liga restart. After the interruption, the yellow submarine is doing exceptionally well.
With efficiency and minimalism, Villarreal suddenly crawls back to the international meat pots, the optimal point yield suddenly makes the team dream of the Champions League – something that seemed impossible before the break.
At the weekend, a 1-0 away win at home strong FC Granada, which was previously unbeaten even after the restart. Carlos Bacca’s early goal in minute 16 was enough to win. “That was the hoped-for start”, Villarreal coach Javi Calleja sums up after the game and then praised the “defensive stability that gave us victory after victory”.
Now you can land a big point in the top game on Matchday 31 when it comes to Sevilla at home – the hunted, who is in third place in the table. “We have a team that is struggling to get to the top,” said Calleja, referring to the Champions League.
At the same time, however, he warns that his team may not take off due to the good start. “We have big dreams, but we have to keep our feet on the floor.”
A win in the home game against Sevilla and the dreams become more and more tangible. Villarreal and Sevilla would then only separate two points; in the race for participation in the European elite class, everything would finally be open.
Villarreal naturally wants to sparkle in at the top, Sevilla defend its CL position. The Sevillanos have held the desired third or fourth place for four match days, but the cushion is melting.
This is due to three draws in the last four games. If the draw in 1-1 at UD Levante was still clearly a loss of points, the point against FC Barcelona at the weekend (0-0) was certainly seen as a point win.
Here Sevilla showed a committed and closed team performance against the previous league leader La Ligas, especially against the ball, Sevilla presented itself excellently organized on the defensive, frustrating Barça and earning a point.
Goalkeeper Tomas Vaclik was also happy about the draw, “that is a valuable point,” said the Czech goalkeeper. While Sevilla’s players were still satisfied with the division of points against Barcelona, another victory is now expected.
“Now you have to gold-plate this point by winning the next game,” Reguilon says of the difficult game in Villarreal, while Vaclik explains: “I expect a tough game against Villarreal on Monday. They have a good rhythm, they win their games and they don’t allow anything. ”
