Let’s check the latest news, stats, injury reports, and Spain La Liga odds for Villarreal vs Valencia. We’ve plenty of soccer predictions for you to consider.

Villarreal Highly Motivated

The following are Villarreal’s greatest achievements: Winning the UEFA Europa League and eliminating Bayern Munich from the UEFA Champions League. The first one happened last season, while the second one happened last week. Therefore, you won’t find a more motivated team than the Yellow Submarine.

Regarding La Liga, Villarreal’s sitting in seventh place, six points behind Real Sociedad. Whoever finishes sixth will secure a spot in a UEFA competition. The Yellow Submarine’s other option is to win the UCL.

Most recently, Unai Emery’s team visited Getafe and won 2-1. Gerard Moreno and Manu Trigueros were the scorers. Moreno scoring again is very good news for the Yellow Submarine. He’s the team’s top scorer with nine goals but has been bothered by several injuries throughout the season.

Domestically, Villarreal has been a more productive soccer pick when playing at La Ceramica. They own a 9-5-2 record (4-5-7 on the road). As I mentioned before, they haven’t lost in their last 11 games. That includes Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid, Juventus, and Bayern Munich.

Valencia Can’t Afford to Lose

The visitors are currently sitting in tenth place, 13 points behind Real Sociedad. If they don’t win the Copa del Rey, they won’t be in any UEFA competition. The Copa del Rey champion automatically qualifies for the UEL.

Real Betis, is playing at a great level, therefore, Valencia shouldn’t rule out qualifying through La Liga, and in that case, they can’t afford to lose against Villarreal.

Los Che owns a 5-5-6 record when playing on the road. They haven’t lost in their last four games, scoring in all but one.

Last Saturday, they played host to Osasuna and lost 2-1. Los Che, who were the favorites, won possession and finished with more shots on goal. It seems the attacking unit, led by Goncalo Guedes and his 11 goals, was not feeling it. They’re eager to bounce back.

There are plenty of reasons to consider Valencia a tempting soccer betting underdog, especially at +600. Besides the one mentioned, there’s the fact that physically, Valencia owns the advantage. Villarreal has played two games per week since April 2.

The Yellow Submarine owns a 5-1-4 record in its last 10 meetings with Valencia. During that span, both finished with a clean sheet at least three times, so you can expect a close game.

Villarreal vs Valencia Prediction

Yes, Valencia owns the physical advantage, but there should be no doubt that Villarreal is the better team. Emery has done a great job establishing a winning mentality, also, making them believe that the best defense is a good offense. The Yellow Submarine scored in seven of their last 10 games, winning every time.

The visitors will put up a good fight, enough for the total to go over, but not to pull off the upset.

Score Prediction: Villarreal 2, Valencia 1

Pick: Over 2½ -130
