Prediction and odds for the game: Sevilla (4/6) v Villarreal (4/1)
We are backing the home win
When: Sunday 15th December 2019, Kick-off 5:30 PM
Where: Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan
The Andalusians are enjoying a strong campaign under the stewardship of former Spain boss Julen Lopetegui. They are currently third-place in La Liga, just three points behind leaders Barcelona.
The home side are undefeated in eight games in the Spanish top-flight, having recorded an impressive five victories. A 1-1 draw at Osasuna last time out in La Liga ended a three-game winning streak for the Andalusians in the Spanish top-flight.
Their recent league games have been tight and low-scoring affairs, as seven of their last eight league matches have produced under 2.5 goals.
Sevilla have a strong recent record at the Sanchez Pizjuan in the Spanish top-flight, as they are undefeated in five games, having recorded four wins in the process. Their recent home games in the league have been low-scoring affairs, with under 2.5 goals scored in seven of their last eight outings, including their last four league matches.
The Andalusians have not been great in front of goal this season in La Liga, as only two teams in the leagues top 13 have scored fewer goals than Julen Lopetegui’s side.
The visitor’s recent form in La Liga has dropped rather alarmingly for everybody connected with the club. The Yellow Submarine have slipped to 13th position in the table, six points clear of the relegation zone.
A goalless draw at home to Atletico Madrid last time out in La Liga means that Villarreal have now failed to win in six matches in the Spanish top-flight, having suffered four defeats in the process. The visitors have also conceded at least two goals in those aforementioned four defeats.
Despite Villarreal’s poor campaign so far in La Liga, only the top-two Barcelona and Real Madrid have scored more goals than the Yellow Submarine this season. Their attacking exploits in La Liga have led to over 2.5 goals being scored in five of their last seven league outings.
Villarreal have been homesick of late in La Liga, losing five of their last six. The visitor’s defence has been generous to opponents on their travels, as they have conceded at least twice in eight of their last ten away matches in La Liga. Their recent poor defensive displays have led to over 2.5 goals scored in nine of their last away matches.
Sevilla are definitely the form team heading into this clash, with Villarreal’s recent league form awful of late. We are backing the home win due to the two teams respective form. Despite Villarreal free-scoring exploits, we are going to for the under 2.5 goals scored, mainly due to Sevilla’s low-scoring matches of late.
Verdict: Back the home win at odds of 4/6 and/or the under 2.5 goals scored at odds of 6/4.[geosnippet id=3620]
