A very clinical Villarreal have helped themselves to an abundance of goals over their previous 6 games (23 to be precise). That translates to an outstanding average of 3.83 goals scored per match for this time. That kind of trend might not be carried forward here, of course.

Looking at the pre-match facts, Villarreal:

  • remain undefeated by Elche CF in away games against them for the last 3 league matches.

🗞️ Team News: Elche CF

The Elche CF manager Francisco Rodríguez will be grateful to have no fitness worries at all ahead of this match with a completely injury-free squad available to select from.

It seems likely that Los Franjiverdes look set to opt for a 4-4-2 system this time, beginning the first half with Edgar Badia, Antonio Barragan, Enzo Roco, Diego Gonzalez, Johan Mojica, Tete Morente, Gerard Gumbau, Omar Mascarell, Pere Milla, Lucas Boye and Lucas Perez.

📰 Team News: Villarreal

Villarreal manager Unai Emery has to currently contend with reduced team options. Rubén Peña (Shoulder Injury), Francis Coquelin (Achilles Irritation) and Paco Alcácer (Muscle Injury) can’t be considered.

We’re of the thinking that El Submarino Amarillo could decide to play in a 4-4-1-1 system, starting the game with Geronimo Rulli, Juan Foyth, Raul Albiol, Pau Torres, Pervis Estupinan, Moi Gomez, Etienne Capoue, Daniel Parejo, Alberto Moreno, Manuel Trigueros and Gerard Moreno.

💡 Prediction

Our feeling is that Elche CF might well have a job on their hands to get anything against this Villarreal team who will likely end up scoring and staying ahead.

We therefore fancy a 0-1 win for Villarreal when the referee blows for full-time.

Our expert partners are tipping over 1.5 goals for this match. Check out their VIP predictions here.
