Los Rojillos to earn fourth consecutive stalemate
Villarreal have won six on the spin in all competitions, but the Yellow Submarine could take their eye off the ball when they entertain a battling Osasuna side this weekend.
A Gerard Moreno penalty secured Unai Emery’s men a crucial 0-1 first leg lead in their UEFA Europa League quarter-final tie against Dinamo Zagreb in midweek, though the Valencian outfit endured a tough 90 minutes in Croatia and have to deal with a quick turn around here.
It’s also likely that they’ll be prioritising next week’s second leg considering how close to a trophy they are, and Europa League success would secure Champions League football next term which they can’t achieve via the league.
With those doubts in mind and the fact that Villarreal have drawn six of their 14 home league games this term, we think it’s worth backing a stalemate at la Ceramica this weekend.
Opponents Osasuna have eased their way clear of the bottom three in recent weeks thanks to some solid results and sturdy performances, and the visitors’ last three outings have finished goalless.
Los Rojillos have also lost just one of their last five away trips (W2, D2), so a draw appeals this Sunday afternoon and 0-0 could be a good shout again in the correct score market, with neither side expected to push the boat out.
