VILLARREAL v VALENCIA: It’s week 19 of Spain’s La Liga and I am looking at the Saturday evening game between Villarreal v Valencia to find a BETDAQ winning tip.
Villarreal v Valencia
Matchday 19 of La Liga and after last week’s brilliant win for Sevilla over Real Madrid, the title race has opened up once again.
Whilst the top places are filled by the usual suspects, one name is notable by its absence and it really is a case of how the mighty have fallen.
Valencia sits fourth from bottom and faces a serious challenge to climb away from the relegation zone. Tonight, Valencia face sixth-placed Villarreal in a local derby so a few yellow cards can be expected.
Both teams come into this game with indifferent form although Villarreal has the most favourable being unbeaten in their last six drawing three and winning three. For Valencia three draws, two losses and one win of which came last week at home to Espanyol.
Valencia has incredibly gone through eight managers in just four years and is currently looking for a ninth after the last boss, Cesare Prandelli, walked away after just three months.
Current Valencia Caretaker coach’ VORO, did secure his team a draw and win in his first league games in charge this season and that alone does give hope. On the down side, the draw was against bottom club Osasuna but the win over a decent Espanyol outfit was impressive enough.
They now need to build on that away to Villarreal, a team who have lost only once at home in La Liga all season. That sole loss came after a tough away Europa League away game, a competition which the yellow submarines are taking very seriously.
On the head to head, these teams are almost evenly matched although last season Villarreal beat Valencia home and away.
Confidence is Low for Valencia and high for Villarreal who have drawn at home with Sevilla, Barcelona and beat Atletico Madrid three nil and also drawing away to Real Madrid- Decent Form.
As mentioned this is a derby however at the odds I can’t get away from a home victory.
Backing Villarreal on the Asian handicap is tempting however I am going for a straight victory and I am backing Villarreal to win, for five points, at odds of around 2.0 on BETDAQ.
BACK for 5 Points – VILLARREAL to win @2.0
