Villarreal vs Valencia

SUN 28th JUNE 2020 – KO 16:00pm


On Sunday afternoon, Villarreal host Valencia at the Estadio de la Ceramica, in a game that could be crucial in the fight for European qualification from La Liga.


The Yellow Submarine currently occupies the last European qualification spot in La Liga. However, competition for the top-six is fierce, as the eighth-place visitors are currently just two points adrift of the Javi Calleja’s team.

Villarreal head into this clash in good spirits, as they are unbeaten in four games in La Liga. A 2-2 home draw against Sevilla last time out ended a three-game winning streak for them in the Spanish top-flight, though.

The draw also ended a run of three straight clean sheets for the home side in the top-flight.

They have experienced inconsistent recent league form at the Ceramica, although they have recorded three wins in their previous five home games in the league.


Los Che are still well in the race for the top-six. A victory in this clash would certainly boost their prospects of European football for next season.

However, a woeful recent run of form in La Liga, including one win in five games, has hampered Albert Celades team in their quest for a top-six finish.

A 1-0 defeat at Eibar last time out was a particularly disappointing result.

If it is one thing that could prevent the visitors from making it into European competition next season it is their form on their travels in the Spanish top-flight.

Valencia have failed to win in seven away games in La Liga, having suffered five defeats.

Team News

Villarreal look set to be without Ramiro Guerra and Ramiro Funes Mori due to injury, while Alberto Moreno and Manu Trigueros miss out due to suspension.

Valencia have their own issues heading into this clash. Cristiano Piccini, Francis Coquelin, Ezequiel Garay and Mouctar Diakhaby are unlikely to figure due to injuries. Eliaquim Mangala will miss out due to suspension.

Match Prediction

Villarreal will be in confident mood and I can see the Yellow Submarine sinking Los Che to consolidate their position in La Liga’s top-six.

Odds 11/10
