The La Liga season is slowly but surely coming to an end and while we know the identity of the champions, there’s still a lot left to be resolved – especially with regard to the European places. Spanish football has represented themselves honourably so far during the campaign and two reasons for that, Villarreal and Sevilla, will attempt to showcase why this weekend.
The story of Villarreal’s season revolves around their utterly memorable run to the Champions League semi-finals that so nearly saw them make it all the way to the final under Unai Emery. They haven’t quite been at the races domestically but this is a memory their fans will take with them for years to come, and unfortunately, we don’t think there will be much left in the tank – even with a top six finish in their sights.
Danjuma may not be ready to make it back in time for this game but with Moreno back to full fitness and no other major injury problems to worry about, this should be a strong Villarreal side.
Sevilla performed below expectations in the Europa League which is a competition that many associate with the history of the club. In La Liga, however, they spent a long time as the closest challengers to eventual champions Real Madrid, which is why they should be given a lot of credit. Now, they just need to make sure they keep their spot in the top four – and possibly push for a 2nd place finish.
Fernando and Martial are both still expected to miss out through injury with Mir being back in contention after his recent suspension.
Factors to Consider
- Villarreal are 7th in La Liga whereas Sevilla are 4th.
- Villarreal have won two, drawn one and lost three of their last six games.
- Sevilla have won two, drawn one and lost three of their last six games.
- Villarreal have scored eight goals and conceded nine in their last six games.
- Sevilla have scored nine goals and conceded 10 in their last six games.
The old fashioned ‘adrenaline dump’ is something that happens a lot towards the end of the football season and we can see that being the main story of the day here when Villarreal battle Sevilla. Both understand that they’ve got something left to play for but they aren’t going to take too many risks, with the hosts having the pain of their midweek efforts to deal with. In the end, we’re going to go for a 0-0 draw.
