With the hope of moving closer to the top 6, Villarreal will be hosting Sevilla this Sunday, in the Spanish La Liga 2021-22.
Villarreal had a packed and exciting last few weeks, as they moved past Juventus and Sevilla to make it to the semifinals of the Champions League. After facing a meek 2-0 defeat against a red-hot Liverpool, Villarreal put up a valiant effort at the El Madrigal in the second defeat, notching up a 2-0 lead in the first half itself. However, Liverpool put up a late assault, and 3 goals within a span of 12 minutes in the second half ensured that the English side sailed through with an aggregate score of 5 goals to 2.
The packed schedule took its toll on Villarreal’s domestic performance too, as they have won just 2 of the last 6 top-flight games. A 2-1 loss against a delegation that threatened Alaves in their latest top-flight outing means that Villarreal is now on the 7th spot on the points table, 4 points behind Real Sociedad and 9 points away from the top 4. With just 4 matches to go before the season ends and no other distractions, Unai Emery will be rallying behind his boys to collect the maximum possible points from the upcoming matches.
Thanks to its performances in the first half of the season, Sevilla is still holding on to 3rd place in the La Liga table. The club, which at one time was seen threatening Real Madrid’s top finish ambitions, has managed to win just 2 of their last 8 matches. As a result, a 5th placed Betis is now just 6 points behind, and any more slippages will seriously hamper the chances of Julen Lopetegui making it into next year’s Champions League.
Sevilla was held to a 1-1 draw by another relegation-threatened team, Cadiz, in its latest outing, and would be looking to put up a better performance this time around. Most football betting sites are predicting a close contest between both teams.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Villarreal C. F. vs Sevilla F. C. La Liga 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Estadio de la Ceramica, Villarreal, on 8th May 2022.
With all other distractions out of the way, Unai Emery’s only focus will be to make it into the top 4 at any cost, a dream which looks almost impossible at this stage. But the club's recent exploits on the big stage will provide hope to the fans. The coach is expected to field a full-strength squad this Sunday, in a 4-4-2 formation.
Sevilla has a couple of fitness concerns, as Fernando and Karim Rekik are unlikely to take the field due to injuries.
We expect both the teams to finish on an even scoreline.
Bet on a draw.
2 of the last 3 games between the two clubs have seen an aggregate score of less than 2.5 at full time. Villarreal has conceded a total of 4 goals in the last 4 matches, indicating we could be in for a low-scoring encounter this time as well.
Each of the last 4 matches for Sevilla has seen both the teams score at full time. Similarly, 3 of the last 4 La Liga games for Villarreal have seen both teams being able to get on the board. This bet as well as the other one recommended above also act as a hedge to each other.
