Tip Reasoning

  • Villarreal are unbeaten in seven home fixtures
  • Espanyol have not won any of their last eight games
  • There have been three or more goals in four of Villarreal’s last six at La Ceramica

Villarreal heading for Europe?

A good run of form has pushed Villarreal to within touching distance of the top six. They head into this game having lost just one of their last ten La Liga games, winning seven times.

Unai Emery’s side have been victorious in seven of their 13 home matches in the league, losing just twice, scoring an incredible 29 times at La Ceramica already.

Indeed, their home La Liga fixtures are averaging over three goals per 90 minutes, with four of the last five including three or more goals, up until a 0-0 draw with Real Madrid last time out.

Espanyol in free-fall

Espanyol have slumped into the bottom half of the table thanks to a run of no win in seven league fixtures, losing to Elche, Athletic Bilbao and Real Betis during that period.

Their dreadful defence has conceded at least two goals in five of their last six and seven of their last nine La Liga outings, failing to keep a clean sheet in ten attempts.

Four successive away games have featured three or more goals, while Vicente Moreno’s side have still only won once in twelve attempts on the road.

Villarreal should win this one and I expect plenty of goals in the game. I predict a home win with three or more goals, selecting 3-1 to the hosts as a correct score prediction.
