Villareal vs. Sevilla Prediction

Five games of the sixth round of the Spanish LaLiga will be played on Sunday. All matches will be in the shadow of El Derby Madrilena, but Villareal and Sevilla will meet in a very interesting duel. The start of the clash is scheduled for 16:15.

This will be a clash of teams whose form is diametrically opposed at the moment. Zuta Podmornica has been playing very well, while Sevilla is in serious trouble and this difficult visit does not come at a good time.

Villarreal Team News

Villarreal players entered the new season with a lot of confidence. Encouraged by excellent results from the previous season, in which they reached the semi-finals of the Champions League, as well as good performances in the pre-season, they registered three wins and one draw in the first four rounds in LaLiga.

They suffered their first defeat last week in Andalucia against Betis 0-1, and now they have a clash with Betis’ city rival. It should be noted that they played four of the first five games in the new season away, which is an additional aggravating circumstance.

Unai Emery’s men recorded positive results in the group stage of the UEFA League Conference as well. They beat Lech Poznan 4-3 and Hapoel Beer Sheva 2-1, so after two rounds they have the maximum number of points.

Alberto Moreno will certainly miss the duel against Sevilla, while the performances of Foyth, Danjuma, and Reina are questionable.

Sevilla Team News

On the other hand, Julen Lopetegui’s players started the new campaign very badly. In the first five rounds, they achieved only one victory, against Espanyol 3-2 in the previous round. They carried over their bad form to the Champions League matches, where they won only one point in the first two rounds. They played against Manchester City 0-4 and FC Copenhagen 0-0.

The defense is the most vulnerable part of Sevilla. Let’s remember that during the summer they sold Jules Kounde and Diego Carlos, and the two of them were the most important defenders last season. Tanguy Nianzou from Bayern and Marcao from Galatasaray arrived in their place, but they still did not play well enough.

The team’s offensive line has also not been functioning well enough. In the first five games, they scored only six goals. It is a modest contribution because the individual quality of their attackers is at a high level.

Coach Lopetegui has problems with injured and suspended players. Papu Gómez, Jesus Corona, and Eric Lamela will not travel for this match and this could disrupt the coach’s plans as all three are indispensable parts of the rotation.

H2H

Villarreal is unbeaten against Sevilla in front of their own fans in their last four meetings. They achieved two wins and two draws.

Expected lineups

Villareal (4-3-3): Rulli; Pedraza, Torres, Albiol, Femenia; Capoue, Lo Celso, Parejo; Pino, Jackson, Moreno

Sevilla (4-3-3): Bono; Acuna, Nianzou, Gudelj, Carmona; Jordan, Fernando, Rakitic; Mir, En-Nesyri, Dolberg

Villarreal vs. Sevilla Prediction

Villarreal’s form is far better than Sevilla’s. Lopetegui’s players failed to overcome significantly weaker teams in the previous rounds, so we give them little chance for a positive result in this clash.
