Betting Tips for the game
Valencia haven’t had such an extraordinary campaign, but they still find themselves 9th in the La Liga table, five points behind the top six. Los Che were on a three-game unbeaten run across all competitions prior to their 1-0 away loss at Getafe in their Copa del Rey midweek tie. However, Valencia have been a powerful side on home soil over the past two months, winning six and drawing two of their last eight competitive fixtures.
Villarreal, on the contrary, have been terrible throughout this La Liga season and their recent form has been similar. The Yellow Submarine come into this tie on the back of a seven-game winless streak across all competitions, although five of these have ended in draws. This leaves Villarreal 19th in the league table, already four points behind safety.
Valencia have been amazing on home soil over the past few months and they should be able to secure a win here against Villarreal. Our betting tips and predictions expect Valencia to win at odds 1.90.
