Valencia vs Villarreal Preview


Valencia and Villarreal have been well below their best and are miles away from the top six in Spain. Neither club can be backed with any confidence so I’m predicting a draw in La Liga.

  • Valencia are undefeated in 5 of their last 6 home matches.
  • Valencia have drawn their last 2 home matches.
  • Valencia are undefeated in their last 6 home matches against Villarreal.

Head to Head


Valencia have a 24-21 advantage against Villarreal with 11 draws in 56 matches.

Valencia Form


Valencia have been incredibly inconsistent in La Liga, failing to win consecutive games since the start of the season.

Rubén Baraja’s side recently failed to win in five La Liga matches, including three defeats on the road where they conceded eight goals.

Valencia gained some confidence to end the year, starting with a 1-1 draw against Barcelona. They then won 1-0 at Rayo Vallecano, Sergi Canós scoring the winner with his first goal of the season.

Valencia Injuries & Team News


Left-back José Gayà and midfielder André Almeida have muscle injuries.

Right-back Thierry Correia is suspended.

Villarreal Form


Villarreal had a poor start to the season which saw Quique Setién sacked. Pacheta lasted 12 games before Marcelino returned for a second spell in charge.

Marcelino went undefeated in his first five games in charge before a 3-0 defeat against Real Sociedad. They bounced back with a 3-2 win at Rennes in the Europa League which saw them take top spot in Group F. 

Villarreal returned to La Liga with a 4-1 defeat at Real Madrid where they were thoroughly outplayed. The Yellow Submarine are coming off a 3-2 win against Celta Vigo after leading 3-0 in the 48th minute.

Villarreal Injuries & Team News


Winger Yeremy Pino is out for the season after undergoing cruciate ligament surgery.

Midfielder Etienne Capoue is available after suspension.

Verdict

Valencia and Villarreal are way off the top six in La Liga, both clubs lingering in midtable. I am expecting a close match to end in a draw.
