Villarreal hosts Valencia
Villarreal hosts Valencia at the Estadio de la Ceramica in a fixture from the 32th round of La Liga. We are going to present you our football expert betting tips for this fixture on Sunday.
Villarreal are unbeaten since the restart of the league after the coronavirus pandemic – three wins and one draw from four matches played. Thanks to this solid performance the Yellow Submarine is now 6th in the league standings with 48 points won. Being just one point behind the 5th Getafe, Villarreal could hope for an even better finish of the season.
Few days ago Javi Calleja’s team made its 6th draw for the season. Villarreal had a tough test against Sevilla at home. The game ended without winners – 2-2. Twice Villarreal were ahead in the scoreline, thanks to Paco Alcacer and Pau Torres, but at the end Sevilla managed to win a point.
Javi Calleja was not happy with the way his team missed the opportunity to win again, but now they could do better against Valencia on Sunday.
Valencia lost twice since the restart of the league, which is a bit worrying for the manager Albert Celades. In the previous round Los Che suffered their 9th loss for the season. Valencia visited Eibar and suffered a 0-1 defeat. It was a bad performance by the former champions.
The French center-back Ellaquim Mangala won’t be avaliable for the next game. Mangala got sent off in the last few minutes of the match against Eibar. He won’t be travelling to face Villarreal.
Villarreal are the team which performs better since the COVID-19 pandemic, compared to Valencia. They will have the home advantage on Sunday, although it’s not much of an advantage without the fans. Can Valencia bounce back after their last defeat? Most certainly they will try to.
