Well respected in the Spanish La Liga, Villarreal currently sit fourth on the standings, with a decent return of eight points from their opening five games. An encouraging start, the Yellow Submarines will be looking to continue recording good results as the season progresses.

Meanwhile, Valencia can also be satisfied with their start to the season. They weren’t entirely convincing last term, and will need to return to the top-end of the La Liga table this year. So far, they are on the right path to achieving this goal.

Villarreal vs Valencia Team News

One of the better sides in the league last season, Villarreal garnered a whopping 60 points from their 38 fixtures to command a fifth-place finish. Unai Emery must have been proud of his players for their displays, as they qualified for the Europa League.

For their recent exploits, the Yellow Submarines might be deserving of a pat on the back like a Patriot’s jersey – fans of American football will appreciate that clever reference. This season, they will be pushing for a top-four finish but will have their work cut-out to bring this to fruition.

Villarreal were outstanding in their previous two games, picking up four points. After easily dispatching Alaves 3-1 last month, they went on to hold Spanish juggernauts Atletico Madrid to a goalless draw.

Even at the Wanda Metropolitano, Villarreal denied Atleti maximum points – a wonderful feat that cannot be overlooked. The hosts dominating proceedings throughout the match, they couldn’t find a breakthrough as Emery’s men frustrated all their efforts to pinch out a point.

Heading into this weekend’s fixture, the Yellow Submarines will be desperate for victory to build on their previous result. Valencia haven’t enjoyed an ideal start to the season, but are faring quite well in the league with seven points to their name.

As much as their performances on the pitch have been questionable, Los Che are also experiencing some disturbing off-the-field issues that need sorting out. Head coach Javi Garcia recently revealed his desire to terminate his contract as he remains unhappy at the Mestalla.

The gaffer has been left disappointed in the club owners’ poor transfer business over the summer, claiming they aren’t ambitious enough. Their last game saw them suffer an embarrassing 2-0 defeat to Real Betis. These ones need to get their act together to stand any chances in this upcoming contest.

Villarreal vs Valencia Predictions

Valencia’s squad lacks quality after the likes of Ferran Torres, Rodrigo Moreno, Cristiano Piccini and Ezequiel Garay all moved on during the summer. Also, the club failed to find suitable replacements for these key players, leaving Los Che in the lurch.

A much more balanced side, Villarreal are in with a shout here. Capitalizing on the visitor’s numerous problems, Emery’s men should have enough about themselves to topple their troubled rival.
