Away Villarreal CF

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Under 2.5 goals at 11/10 is one of our football predictions here. Neither side have been in good goalscoring form so do not expect there to be many goals.

2 We fancy:

The draw at 11/4 leads off our La Liga predictions in this one. Neither side have much to suggest they can get a win so the draw looks the most likely for this game and is one of the best football predictions for today.

3 It's a long shot, but…

0-0 to be correct in the football score score predictions at 14/1 could be a way to go here given neither side have looked great going forward and that neither side will want to lose. Could be worth some money on it.

Sevilla FC vs Villarreal CF Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Sevilla’s famous Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan hosts Villarreal this weekend

In this La Liga preview we will be looking at the league game between seventh placed Sevilla and sixth placed Villarreal. Sevilla start the game as favourites at 10/11 but have been very disappointing this season and will miss out on Champions League football in the 18-19 season.

As for the away side, Villarreal are also in a poor run of form lately after losing four of their last six games in La Liga. They start the game at 11/4 and need to start picking up more wins if they are to stay ahead of Sevilla and make the Europa League next season.

Sevilla managed a 2-2 draw with Barcelona in their last home game and generally have been good at home this season. They have just three defeats at home all campaign but two of those have come in their last four games at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium and have conceded 10 goals in that process and scored only three, which is something to consider in football score predictions.

They are without a win league home win since early last month but being knocked out of the Champions League will enable them to concentrate purely on the league. One of our leading free football betting tips in this game is the draw at 11/4 given how both sides are in a poor run of form and a point would at least provide some kind of positive.

Sevilla’s defence has been awful this season considering their pedigree in Spain. They have the fourth worst defence in the whole league and have conceded 50 goals and scoring just 39. Villarreal will be confident they can score past them but their goal record on the road is not promising of late, with just three in their last four away games.

Goals are not expected here given that both have struggled for them in recent weeks. Sevilla have seen under 2.5 goals in four of their last six league games, whilst Villarreal have seen under 2.5 goals in six of their last seven games on the road. Under 2.5 goals at 11/10 looks good value and it makes up one of our football predictions for the weekend.

This game seems to be a case of two teams lacking in confidence and in need of a morale boosting win heading into the final few games of the season. Sevilla are out of the Champions League now and that should help them with the league and a home game this weekend provides a good opportunity for them to win, so they’re worth considering for any football betting tips for the weekend.
