Reason For Sevilla vs Villarreal Predictions

  • Sevilla head into this Matchday 17 contest unbeaten in their last eight La Liga outings (W5, D3).
  • The hosts have accrued 14 points from seven league games at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan this term, losing only to joint-leaders Real Madrid (1-0) on Matchday 5.
  • Villarreal travel to Andalusia without a win in their last six La Liga matches (D3, L3).
  • The visitors have struggled badly on the road this season, winning just two and losing six of their away games.

Sevilla enjoying a big season

Sevilla’s 11-match unbeaten run in all competitions may have come to an end on Thursday night after they were beaten 1-0 by APOEL Nicosia in Cyprus, but the result won’t concern Julen Lopetegui and his side too much. They had already qualified easily for the Last 16 of the Europa League as Group A winners.

Los Palanganas can now concentrate solely on La Liga until European competition resumes in February; they are enjoying a massive season domestically after the disappointment of missing out on the Champions League places last term. Sevilla have a stranglehold on third place after a run of five wins and three draws from their last eight top-flight matches.

They head into their penultimate La Liga fixture before Christmas just three points behind joint-leaders Barcelona and Real Madrid. The Andalusian giants will have been frustrated not to get the better of Osasuna at El Sadar last weekend, after the hosts were reduced to 10men with half an hour to play, but the 1-1 draw nonetheless kept Sevilla’s unbeaten run in-tact. They will be hopeful of a six-point haul over the next fortnight with an away game against strugglers Mallorca to come on Matchday 18.

Villarreal struggling to make progress

Villarreal endured a nightmare 2018/19 domestically as they slumped to a poor 14th-place finish and it looks as though El Submarino Amarillo are set for a similar berth again this time around.

Despite a positive start to the campaign in the opening rounds, Javier Calleja’s side are now without a win in six La Liga game,s following three draws and three defeats. Although last weekend’s 0-0 stalemate against Atletico Madrid at La Ceramica can be considered a fair result, they desperately need a victory soon to restore confidence and prevent being drawn into the relegation battle.

Things could look much worse for Villarreal over the Christmas period, though, as they face a tough home fixture against 5th-placed Getafe on Matchday 18 and head to Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan this Sunday, having lost six of their eight league matches on the road this season.

Sevilla worthy odds-on favourites

Based on recent form, Sevilla’s strength in Andalusia and Villarreal’s struggles away from home, the hosts are worthy odds-on favourites for this Sunday’s encounter. But they still represent a bit of value at around the 4/6 mark.

We’re confidently getting behind Lopetegui’s side to bag all three points and we’re also predicting a 3-1 correct score. While Villarreal have lost six from eight on their travels, they have managed to net in all their away games this season, a trend we can see continuing here due to their attacking style of play.

As seen on many occasions this term, though, El Submarino Amarillo regularly leave themselves exposed and Sevilla can take advantage, despite their less-than-prolific record of nine scored in seven on home soil.
