Valencia – Villareal Preview

Valencia hosts Villarreal at the Estadio de Mestalla in a match from the 19th round of the Spanish La Liga. Let’s see what we can tell you about this clash in our bet of the day predictions.

 

Let’s start with the hosts here. Valencia are 10th in the standings with 23 points won and a record of 6 wins, 5 wins and 7 defeats. The team was in a long run without a win in the league, but before the break Valencia finally won again – 1-0 against Rayo Vallecano away from home. Sergi Canos became the hero with a winning goal in the 61th minute. Diego Lopez provided the decisive assist.

 

Valencia’s manager Ruben Baraja will have to make some changes in the line-up against the Yellow Submarine. Thierry Correia was sent off in the 91th minute of the match so he will miss the next one.

 

Villarreal are having an average season so far. The Yellow Submarine is 13th in the league with 19 points won. Their record so far shows 5 wins, 4 draws and 9 losses. They need to step up if they want something more from the 2023/24 campaign. So far they are disappointing.

 

Before the Christmas break Villarreal enjoyed their 5th win for the season. Marcelino’s team had a very tough game against Celta Vigo, but managed to secure a 3-2 win at home. Alfonso Pedraza, Mandi and Dani Parejo scored Villarreal’s goals in this game. Celta scored twice in the second half, but it wasn’t enough for them.

 

Gerard Moreno remains Villarreal’s most prolific striker since the start of the season. So far he has scored 8 goals in the league. Alexander Sorloth is following him with 6 goals on his tally.

 

That’s the bet of the day predictions for the La Liga game between Valencia and Villarreal at the Mestalla. Both teams have some difficulties so far, but let’s see what will happen here.
