Espanyol vs Villarreal Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Despite scoring twice on the road, Espanyol were disappointed not to come away with three points against a newly promoted team like Rayo Vallecano. Espanyol have several winnable games in the next five that can be used to cement their place in the top 10. The Catalan outfit have struggled without a goalscorer like Gerard Moreno, and none of their players have been able to score more than two goals so far this season. Villarreal have had multiple disappointments in recent weeks and the away win over Athletic Bilbao is the only solace. The recent Europa League match caused a lengthy travel schedule for Villarreal, who have drawn four in six visits to the RCDE Stadium. However, their travel exertions make me go with a draw.

Three consecutive clean sheets at the RCDE Stadium raise expectations for Espanyol coming into the game. However, Villarreal have a decent scoring record and have just come up with three goals in their Europa League match. The Yellow Submarines have also been unable to score in just one of the last five visits to the RCDE Stadium. I would opt for both teams to score.

Draw – 11/5

Both teams to score – 19/20
