Valencia – Villareal
Valencia hosts Villarreal in a match from the 17th round of the Spanish La Liga. Here are our soccer tips for today for the game at the Mestalla Stadium in the city of Valencia.
Compared to the last season, Valencia are a completely changed team. They are playing much better under the management of Marcelino, who once again turned Los Che into contenders for a Champions League qualification. And maybe even something more?
Right now Valencia are third in the La Liga standings, but they will overcome Atletico Madrid for the 2nd place, if they win against Villarreal. They have 34 points won so far and a record of 10 wins, 4 draws and 2 defeats. In their last three games Valencia lost twice – against Getafe and Eibar, but now they are highly motivated to return to top form and start winning again on a more regular basis.
Villarreal on the other hand are 6th in the La Liga standings with 24 points and a record of 7 wins, 3 draws and 6 defeats. They are currently positioned in the Europa League zone of La Liga, but if they lose points at the Mestalla, most likely they will lose their place in the Top 6.
Let’s have a look at the team news before the game.
Valencia are without the injured Jeison Murillo and Javier Jimenez, while Gaya and Carlos Soler are doubtful for the match. Everyone else is fit and avaliable for selection.
Meanwhile Villarreal can’t use the injured Ruben Semedo, Nicola Sansone, Leonardo Suarez and Andres Fernandez. In the same time Daniele Bonera is doubtful for the game with a hip injury.
