Villarreal 2-1

Reason for tip

Villarreal have conceded exactly once in five of their last seven home matches, but scored at least twice in six of their previous ten La Liga games, including a 2-1 win over Getafe. Espanyol have netted exactly once in six of their last seven games, losing three of them 2-1.

Villarreal vs Espanyol Predictions

  • Four of Villarreal’s last five games have contained at least three goals
  • Both teams have scored with three or more strikes in four successive Espanyol away fixtures
  • Villarreal have kept just one clean sheet in their last seven home outings

Inconsistent Villarreal need to get back to winning ways

Successive defeats, both by a 2-1 margin, have hampered Villarreal’s hopes of finishing in a Champions League qualification place this season.

Quique Setién’s side are seriously struggling in defence, where they have managed just one clean sheet in their last seven outings at la Ceramica, conceding exactly once on five occasions.

Both teams have netted in three of their last five on home soil, as well as their last three games at all venues, each of which have contained at least three goals.

Espanyol in deep trouble

Espanyol on the other hand remain in the La Liga relegation zone, with their dire away form of four straight defeats a major reason behind their lowly position.

Both teams have scored with three or more goals in each of those games, as they have in eight of their last ten outings at all venues.

That perhaps points to another defeat for Luis García’s side, who have only won on one of their last seven trips to la Ceramica, with five of those games seeing both teams net and containing three or more strikes.

I predict there will be three or more goals in this game and that both teams will score, but suspect Villarreal will come out on top, selecting a 2-1 home win as my correct score prediction.
