Sevilla is welcoming Villarreal to Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan in round 11 in the Spanish LaLiga.
Sevilla is in good form, and they haven’t lost any of their last 5 games while winning 4 of those 5 games. Defensively, Sevilla has been fantastic this season, but their offense has been shaky, and they have scored only 15 goals in 13 games. With 23 points, Sevilla is in 6th place, but the competition is strong in LaLiga this season. in their latest LaLiga game, Sevilla was playing against Valencia on the road, and they were the dominant team with 70% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and a solid 85% of the correct passes. Despite the dominance, Sevilla was struggling with finishing their chances, but they were able to score a goal in the 81st minute. Sevilla has won this match 0-1. En-Nesyri is the leading goalscorer for Sevilla with 4 goals, while El Haddadi, Ocampos, and De Jong added 2 goals each. Navas has added 3 assists. Escudero and Vaclik are both injured for Sevilla at the moment. Sevilla has had some time now to rest and regroup and to work on their offense, but the season is moving on, and I hope Sevilla will start playing better offense from now on.
Villarreal is having a fantastic season, and they are in 4th place with 26 points, just 6 points away from the top of the table. Villarreal has lost only 1 game so far this season, and they have scored 20 goals while conceding only 14 goals in 15 games. Gerard Moreno is the leading goalscorer for Villarreal with 8 goals, while Alcacer has 5 goals and 2 assists. Alberto Moreno, Alcacer, Iborra, Coquelin, and Gaspar are all injured, and they will most likely miss this game. Villarreal was hosting Athletic Bilbao in their last LaLiga game, and they were a much better team in that game with 65% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and a solid 85% of the correct passes. Villarreal was losing 0-1 at halftime, but they were determined to tie the score, and they did. Villarreal scored a goal in the 74th minute, and the final score of this match was 1-1. Villarreal’s improvement started when they signed Unai Emery as their head coach, and it paid off. Villarreal is playing dangerous soccer, they are solid on the defensive end, and I see them in the battle for the Champions League spot this season.
Both Sevilla and Villarreal are in good form, but the trends are on Sevilla’s side in this matchup. Sevilla hasn’t lost any of their last 5 games, but they also haven’t won any of their last 4 home games against Villarreal. Sevilla has the ability to shut out any team out there, and I think they might do the same to Villarreal. I will take a shot at a draw here.
