Sevilla welcomes Villarreal
These two teams are separated by just one point in the league standings. Sevilla is 7th with 46 points, while Villarreal is 6th with 47 points won so far. It’s clear that both teams are trying to qualify for the next edition of Europa League and at now Villarreal has a slight advantage.
Sevilla has a record of 14 wins, 4 draws and 13 defeats since the beginning of the season. But here’s the moment to remind that they are without a win in four consecutive games. For the last time, Sevilla won against Athletic Bilbao. Since then, they suffered three defeats and won one point against Barcelona at home. One point in the last four matches – this is certainly not good enough for the Rojiblancos and their manager Vincenzo Montella.
Villarreal, on the other hand, has a record of 14 wins, 5 draws and 12 defeats. In its last five matches, the Yellow Submarine won twice – against Las Palmas and Atletico Madrid, and suffered three defeats – against Girona, Malaga and Athletic Bilbao. Right now Villarreal is in a run of two consecutive defeats. Can they stop it against Sevilla?
Sevilla’s disadvantage here is the fact that Montella’s team played against Bayern Munich in the Champions League during the week. The Rojiblancos travelled to Munich, where they made a 0-0 draw at the Allianz Arena. Sevilla left the competition after a 1-2 defeat in the first game, but reaching the 1/4-finals of the Champions League was certainly a success for them.
This is our take on the La Liga game between Sevilla and Villarreal. Are you ready?
