Villarreal vs Espanyol Preview

A bottom half of the table finish last campaign seems to have spurred activity in the Villareal camp this season with the side sitting an impressive 9th halfway through the season (W8 D4 L7). Javier Calleja’s charges are the third-highest goalscorers in La Liga this season and currently, they are on a 3-match winning streak.

How much challenge will sorry Espanyol pose? Not much is expected from the bottom of the log side with only 2 wins this season (W2 D5 L12) and with the worst defense and attack than any other side. Relegation seems to have come calling early for the Catalan club. Interesting to note that 6 of the two sides 10 most recent meetings have ended in draws but that was before Espanyol descended to such lows. 

At this moment in time, Villareal is assured at least a point from this clash and Espanyol’s tactician has to find out a plan to keep away the host’s marauding duo of Carzola andMorena who have a combined 14 goals this campaign.

The home side will seek to reap maximum points from this affair. Espanyol, on the other hand, will be looking to build upon their most recent run of 2 unbeaten games; holding Barcelona to a draw and winning against lowly Reyes in cup affairs but with Villareal hungry for points, it will not be a mean feat. Their back line needs to be at its meanest if they are looking for any kind of result here.

Villarreal vs Espanyol Predictions

A Villareal win is on the cards. The Yellow Submarine will sink the Espanyol ship and is very likely to breach their defense on more than one occasion. Espanyol is not likely to leave with anything from Estadio de la Ceramica.
