Villarreal v Sporting Gijón Betting Tips: Joy for both teams expected at El Madrigal

After their surprise win at the intimidating Vicente Calderón on Tuesday evening, Villarreal will be looking to kick-on against a struggling Gijón on Friday night, although this might not be as easy as many expect. Villarreal may well have got the better of Atlético on Tuesday, but that victory wasn’t exactly convincing. In addition, the visitors are fighting for their La Liga lives at present and, although they’re not exactly picking up regular wins, they come here unbeaten in two and are sure to have a real go. The hosts are long odds-on in the betting but, although they really ought to…

Alavés v Villarreal Betting Tips: Stick with the visitors at Mendizorrotza

After Sevilla dropped points on Sunday afternoon, Villarreal have a good opportunity to cut the gap between themselves and 4th place when they travel to take on an Alavés side who’ve already fulfilled their primary objective for the season on Monday night. As they sit nicely in 12th place, a massive 18 points clear of the drop-zone, Alavés’ season is all but over at this point. The newly promoted side have performed with real credit this season and have booked their place in La Liga for another year. Although they have been a tough side to face this season, there has been…

AS Roma v Villarreal Betting Tips: Lack of goals expected at Stadio Olimpico

This tie is all but over after Italian side AS Roma pulled off an incredible 4-0 victory in their away tie at Villarreal, meaning that the Spaniards have to score at least four without reply in Rome on Thursday to have any chance of qualifying. Roma are currently on a fantastic run with 10 wins in their last 11 matches in all competitions. They do sit seven points off top spot in Serie A but it has still been a fantastic season so far. Luciano Spalletti’s side are excellent in both boxes, scoring 54 goals in the league this season…

Real Sociedad v Villarreal Betting Tips: Hosts to kick Yellow Submarine while they’re down

Having won each of their last two fixtures in La Liga, Real Sociedad will be looking to make it three on the bounce when they host an out-of-form Villarreal in Sunday’s early kick-off. In recent weeks, it appears as though these two have been heading in different directions and, as they currently sit in 5th and 6th, this looks to be the perfect opportunity for Sociedad to put some real daylight between themselves and their opponents here. Right now, only one of these two clubs look as though they’re at the races and, in front of a home crowd, Sociedad…

Villarreal v Real Sociedad Betting Tips: Second leg to follow same path as the first

Villarreal and Sociedad will meet each other for the second time in a week as they come together at Estadio El Madrigal for the second leg of this Copa del Rey last-16 tie. Having secured a fairly convincing home victory in the first leg (3-1), Eusebio Sacristán and his Sociedad team will be reasonably confident that they can make it through to the last eight of the competition; however, in conceding a late goal last Wednesday their lead isn’t as secure as it would’ve been and Villarreal – a team who’re tough to face on their own patch – aren’t out…

Athletic Bilbao welcome Villarreal to San Mamés on Sunday night as two of La Liga’s better teams go head-to-head. It’s been a pretty good start to the new campaign for both of these clubs, and, as they sit 7th and 3rd respectively, both will have serious ambitions of pushing hard for the Champions League spots. From a betting point of view, ‘Both Teams to Score’ is the way to play this one. Each side has plenty about them in an attacking sense and it’s fancied that both will find the net at least once here. In front of their own…

Eibar v Villarreal Betting Tips

Eibar play host to Villarreal at Ipurúa on Sunday. The two teams, who’ve both fared reasonably well so far this season, go head-to-head in La Liga’s early kick-off. In the betting, neither team is heavily fancied for this match and, realistically, a solid case could be made for both. One thing that is fancied, certainly by the bookmakers, is a low-scoring match; however, despite an ‘Under 2.5 Goals’ valuation of 4/7, these two teams could easily surprise the majority and serve up a few goals. At odds of 11/8, ‘Over 2.5 Goals’ is too good to miss, as is ‘Both Teams…

Steaua București v Villarreal CF Betting Tip

Having made it into this competition as a result of failing to qualify for the Champions League via the play-offs, these two teams experienced contrasting starts to life in Group L a fortnight ago. After conceding in the second minute of the match, Villarreal fought back to claim a 2-1 victory over Swiss side Zurich, while Steaua slumped to a 2-0 away defeat at the hands of Turkish outfit Osmanlıspor. As a side with fairly lofty ambitions, Villarreal must look at the Europa League as a potential passage through to Champions League football next season. With this in mind, although…

AS Monaco v Villarreal Betting Tip

This match is certainly intriguing as, despite the fact they conceded two away goals in the first leg, Villarreal are by no means out of this tie. Monaco secured an outstanding result by beating the Yellow Submarine in their own waters and securing two away goals in the process. This impressive win against one of the bigger names in Europe followed on from their impressive 5-2 aggregate victory over Turkish giants Fenerbahce in the previous round. Their Ligue 1 campaign also got off to a good start with a win away at Nantes. However, Leonardo Jardim’s team have even more…

Villarreal – Deportivo. Alexander Vishnevskiy’s prediction

Villarreal looked extremely disappointing at Anfield. I have seen Marcelino’s team that mediocre for quite a time. They looked like they were suppressed by the power of the Liverpool stadium, and were not able to fight on the field. Villarreal have guaranteed themselves the fourth place and have got really nothing to fight for. And for the Galicians this is one of the most important games of the season. They need to get three points to guarantee the survival. And it’s better to do that before Real Madrid game. Villarreal will try not to lose in front of their fans,…

Liverpool – Villarreal. Tancredi Palmeri’s prediction

Do you believe in Klopp? Because at this point, and with such a person, it is a matter of faith. The single goal conceded by Liverpool in the first leg  is massive because of the solidity of this Spanish outfit. Villarreal will try to be very disciplined defensively and give nothing away, as they know they are likely to cause problems when it comes to counter attacking and going forward themselves. At this point it is also a matter of faith in Klopp: do you believe that he can inspire his side here or not? I do believe. I believe that…

Liverpool – Villarreal. Konstantin Genich’s prediction

It really is hard to predict anything here. Neither of the two teams carry a great advantage after the first leg. Although were the visitors to score an early goal tonight, this would all change and it would be Villarreal with the upper hand. With this in mind, the scoreline of the first leg (1:0) certainly does make Villarreal the favourite. They are a side who’re capable of remaining disciplined at the back and will likely use counter attacks at Anfield. Considering that Liverpool’s defence is far from perfect we can certainly expect the Spanish side to threaten and it…

Liverpool – Villarreal. Mark O’Haire’s prediction

A late Liverpool defensive lapse handed Villarreal the advantage in this Europa League semi-final but the two teams head to Anfield for the second leg on Thursday night with the tie finely poised. The Merseyside faithful are confident their side are capable of yet another famous comeback in front of the Kop but it’s a feeling not shared by the bookmakers with the Reds outsiders to overturn their 1-0 deficit. Jurgen Klopp’s curious decision to leave sulky Daniel Sturridge on the bench cost the Premier League outfit a focal point for their counter-attack in Spain last week but should the…

Liverpool – Villarreal. Laure James’ prediction

Thursday trading has only thrown up quite short odds for Liverpool to qualify, despite having a 1-0 deficit to overturn. The bookies probably have the same gut feeling as I do; which is Jurgen Klopp’s men will be Europa League finalists. They fielded a dramatically under-strength starting XI – not least the youngest team in the club’s history – against Swansea and were beaten 3-1, so will be well-rested for the return leg at Anfield. Home support counts for a lot with Liverpool. Their fans travel well, yet I’m confident the atmosphere on Merseyside will roar them to victory. Having…

Liverpool – Villarreal. Gabriele Marcotti’s prediction

Liverpool are firm favorites here, despite losing the first leg 1-0. Jurgen Klopp rested plenty at the weekend and you’d have to assume that he has a clear plan for the return leg. Equally, Villarreal can be spiky and defend well. In fact, the bookies have been generous on the total goals markets. Too generous, in my opinion. Liverpool have to attack and with the attacking players at their disposal you wouldn’t bet against them being a real threat, but I’m not sure they’re that good defensively and will likely leave themselves open, as we’ve seen already seen countless times…

Valencia – Villarreal. Alexander Vishnevskiy’s prediction

This match has derby status. It’s important for Valencia and their fans to put in a big performance against their rivals, who are looking set to take the hosts place in the Champions League next season. Although it has been a tough season for Valencia, they have been playing some quality football recently, while Villarreal have had very little time to prepare. Moreover, I would say that Villarreal have prepared mostly for the second leg against Liverpool in the Europa League and therefore have given this game little thought. Without exaggeration, the Europa League semi-final is the most important match…

Villarreal – Liverpool. Konstantin Genich’s prediction

It’s tempting to go for both teams to score here. Villarreal are a team who can vary their style and use different tactics, but Liverpool are well prepared too. The attack of the English team is strong with Firmino, Coutinho and Sturridge all set to start here. With these three the reds still look very strong going forward and I think that the absence of Origi won’t have too much of a negative impact. Liverpool will surely score tonight, regardless of the fact that Villarreal don’t concede many at home this season. On the flip-side Villarreal are extremely good going…

Villarreal – Liverpool. Alexander Vishnevskiy’s prediction

It seems somewhat strange that Liverpool are favourites according to the bookmakers. I think that Villarreal, who are now 4th in La Liga, are extremely underestimated here. Marselino’s team are good in defence (only 31 conceded goal in 35 Primera games) and are a very well balanced side indeed. Bakambu and Soldado create a lot of moments in attack, while Denis Suarez has been near brilliant on the left this season. The hosts also have the highest rate of wins and scored goals in the tournament. The Yellow Submarine have never played in a European cup final, so these games…

Villarreal – Liverpool. Tancredi Palmeri’s prediction

Liverpool are flying on the wings of Klopp, and it looks as though this could well be their Europa League, but Villarreal, who’re a very tough opponent, stand between them and a place in the final. Because of their name, and the fact they knocked out the tournament favourites in the previous round, Liverpool are given the status of favourites for this one, but tactically there really doesn’t seem to be much between themselves and the Yellow Submarine. Once again it will be a 180 minute game, and Klopp won’t make the mistake of underestimating the opponent. In fact, Liverpool…

Villarreal – Liverpool. Gabriele Marcotti’s prediction

What I find interesting is that both these teams have pretty much focused on Europe at the expense of the league of late. That to me suggests more specific preparation and a somewhat tighter defense. The bookies’ prices reflect this, with the unders price being very short. While it’s true that Villarreal are a stingy side, I dont think the same applies to Liverpool who will also have Sakho missing. For that reason, I like over 2.5 goals at 2.2 which is a pretty big price. Single: Lost Villarreal - Liverpool 28.04.2016 20:05 BST Europa League Bet: Over 2.5 goals…

Villarreal – Real Sociedad. Alexander Vishnevskiy’s prediction

Villarreal have recently got perhaps too carried away with the Europa League, and as a result have suffered two consecutive defeats domestically. If Marcelino doesn’t resume winning ways it may cost them their Champions League qualification spot, something that would be very costly from a financial perspective. Meanwhile, in a weeks time, the focus will switch again, and Villarreal won’t be too bothered about the league game, as it will be sandwiched between the two legs of their European semi-final. So, Villarreal must win – here and now. They are good at home (19/25 wins). They have everyone healthy, including…

Real Madrid – Villarreal. Konstantin Genich’s prediction

It’s a game between the two teams sat third and fourth in La Liga. The point gap between them is huge, but still it’s a great rivalry. The last match between these two ended with a Villarreal win. But now the Yellow Submarine have less motivation to play: they are unlikely to lose the Champions League spot and have no chance of moving further up the table. They also have the small matter of the Europa League semi-finals to consider. This is probably why they lost their last game in La Liga to Rayo Vallecano. Barcelona have lost some points in…

The gates to the semi-finals have been well and truly opened for Yellow Submarine after they won 2:1 at El Madrigal. Villarreal are so focused on this target and it’s a problem for Sparta Prague who are usually a tough side to face. Sparta’s game-plan in Europe is to use counter attacks. But this time it is not going to make any sense for them. And because of the aggregate scoreline they will struggle to play as they always play. That’s why we can go for a draw or for both teams to score. Villarreal will surely qualify, but at 1.90…

Villarreal are enjoying their best La Liga campaign since 2010/11 and looking on course for a return to the Champions League having cemented their position in fourth. Head coach Marcelinho has sculpted a side based on efficiency, organisation, defensive discipline and hard work and the results are easy to see. Villarreal are at their most threatening at their El Madrigal and since returning to the Spanish top-flight, the Yellow Submarine have recorded W32-D10-L12 when welcoming La Liga opposition. Since May that return across all competitions reads W19-D3-L3 including 15/25 clean sheets. The likes of Napoli and Bayer Leverkusen have been…

Sparta Prague were good against FC Krasnodar and Lazio, but Villarreal are a team from a different level. The Spanish team are on fire: they are going to get the 4th place in La Liga. I can’t see them losing the Champions League spot. So, now they can concentrate on the Europa League. Villarreal have players to rotate and what is more important – they have strong attack. Villarreal’s best goalscorer Bakambu missed their last game and today he’s expected to play. So, I back Villarreal to win with total match goals over 1.5. I can see the home team…

Villarreal – Barcelona. Alexander Vishnevskiy’s prediction

Villarreal and Barcelona always play exciting games between each other. There are a lot of goals in them, because Villarreal always offer an open-wide game to Barca. And then it is a question of the quality of players, so the last seven games between these teams ended with Barcelona wins. And in six of these seven games there were three and more goals. In the last four games Barcelona scored at least three and conceded from nil to two. So we can go for Barcelona to win and total match goals over 2.5. Luis Enrique’s team had more time to…

Bayer Leverkusen – Villarreal. Alexander Vishnevskiy’s prediction

Villarreal won 2:0 in an unsuccessful game for the German goalkeeper Leno. Bayer are unlikely to make a comeback in a game against Villarreal that concede very little. Leverkusen are not in the best condition, and had only one victory in the last five matches in Bundesliga. In addition, Bayer are torn with injuries and have their right back suspended. Villarreal don’t have such problems. Striker Soldado is ready to play after missing the last La Liga game due suspension. His attacking partner Bakambu is in excellent shape. However, this time the Congolese  may not be fielded, but Leo Baptistao…
