Villarreal – Espanyol: Preview & Prediction
Victory expected this Thursday for the 5th of the last Liga exercise! Spain’s Espanyol Barcelona, 8th last season and 11 points behind their next opponent at the end of the season, have a good opportunity to return to the head of the championship against an opponent within reach . With already two goals in the championship, Cédric Bakambu and Carlos Bacca, the duo of attack with identical initials, are in full bloom and should pose difficulties to the defense of Barcelona, strained since the beginning of the season with at least 1 goal conceded at every encounter!
After two defeats in the first two days (in Levante, 0-1 and Real Sociedad, 0-3), Villarreal has just 3 successes, 2 in La Liga and 1 in the Europa League!
Riding on last season, Villarreal remains on 6 wins and 1 draw in his last 7 home games!
Espanyol have just won their first win of the season against Celta Vigo on Monday (2-1), but came out of a crushing defeat at Camp Nou (0-5) and a setback against Leganes ( 0-1).
The last 12 confrontations between the two clubs in Villarreal have resulted in 8 yellow submarine victories, 3 draws and only 1 defeat!
Our Prognostic Villarreal Espanyol
Villarreal has scored 9 goals in 3 games and seems to have launched its season after two complicated first days. Confirmation this Thursday against Espanyol, a notch below his opponent!
