Under 2.5 goals at Valencia vs Villarreal 4/5 for Friday’s La Liga matchup
Competition: La Liga
Market: Under 2.5 goals
Odds: 4/5 @ 888sport
In a battle between two sides who are in the midst of a domestic sluggish patch, Valencia will host Villarreal on Friday night.
Starting with the hosts, making a worrying return to losing ways last time out, Valencia have continued on an inconsistent run over the past seven weeks. In their 25 La Liga matchups so far this season, they have recorded six wins, nine draws and 10 defeats, scoring 30 and conceding 35 in return. Managing to muster themselves a points tally of 27, the Bats open this weekend’s fixtures sat 14th in the table and three points adrift of breaking into the top-half. However, as for their recent run of results, Valencia were last seen getting hit with a thumping defeat against Getafe and they have managed to win just a pair of their last eight matchups across all formats. It should also be noted, Friday’s hosts have seen each of their last five La Liga matchups on home soil finish with under 2.5 goals by the final whistle.
As for the visitors, despite extending on their European run last week, Villarreal have continued on a hugely worrying domestic run of form. In their 25 La Liga matchups so far this season, they have recorded eight wins, 13 draws and four defeats, scoring 33 and conceding 27 in return. Managing to muster themselves a points tally of 37, the Yellows open this weekend’s fixtures sat seventh in the table and five points adrift of finding a route back into the European positions. As for their recent run of La Liga results, last seen getting hit with a 2-0 loss against Atletico Madrid on home soil, Villarreal have failed to win any of their last seven top-flight contests on the bounce, a run that stems back to the start of January. It should be noted, with five of their last six away fixtures finishing with under 2.5 goals, we’re backing a similar outcome on Friday night.
