Villarreal B vs Espanyol Predictions

[wptb id="391287" not found ]

A Battle of Resilience against Dominance

Key Stats
– Villarreal II are unbeaten in their last five games.
– Espanyol average over two goals per match, leading the Segunda Division.
– Both teams have seen goals at both ends in Villarreal II’s last six matches.

As the Segunda Division’s tenth game week unfolds, we find Villarreal II preparing to host league leaders Espanyol. The stakes are high, with Villarreal II currently nestled in the 13th position, indicating their struggle this season. Their performance last year saw them narrowly escape relegation, and the ghosts of that battle might haunt them this season. With only ten points accumulated from their nine encounters (two wins, four draws, and three losses), their start was less than stellar, registering losses in three out of their first four fixtures. However, recent form paints a brighter picture; they managed to hold Levante to a 1-1 draw and haven’t tasted defeat in their last five outings. Their home record is commendable, but facing a team like Espanyol, the odds seem to be stacked against them.

Espanyol’s tale is quite the opposite. After their unfortunate relegation from La Liga, they appear eager and well-poised to reclaim their spot in Spain’s top-tier football. They currently dominate the Segunda Division with 20 points. Their record so far – six wins, two draws, and a solitary loss against Tenerife – speaks volumes of their intent.

Their recent 3-0 victory over Racing Ferrol and a 2-0 win against Cartagena in the midweek match have solidified their standing. With an average of over two goals per match, they’ve netted 19 times, outscoring all other teams in the division.

Key Players to Watch

Villarreal II’s Strongholds: The spotlight will undoubtedly be on Javier Ontiveros, the midfielder boasting a BettingTips4You Expert Rating of 7.42. Close behind are Iker Álvarez, the goalkeeper, and forwards like Ilias Akhomach and Álex Forés. Interestingly, Álex Forés has emerged as their top scorer with five goals.

Espanyol’s Arsenal: Nicolás Melamed, the midfielder with a stunning BettingTips4You Expert Rating of 7.51, is expected to create ripples. Martin Braithwaite, with five goals in just seven appearances, is another player to keep an eye on.

Statistical Analysis

When we deep-dive into the numbers, Villarreal II have scored 14 goals, equal to their conceded count, suggesting a balanced but vulnerable defence and attack. Their attack stats reveal an average of 1.6 goals per match with an impressive 10.8 successful dribbles. However, their average ball possession stands at 50.2%.

Espanyol, on the other hand, have been dominant. With 19 goals scored against the eight they’ve let in, their stats show dominance. They’ve also been superior in terms of ball possession at 52.8%. Their attacking prowess is evident with an average of 2.1 goals per match.

Expert Predictions

1. Match Outcome Prediction: Given the performance and the available data, backing Espanyol to win seems a logical choice. Yet, with Villarreal II’s knack for scoring at home, a prediction favouring both teams to score with an Espanyol win is tempting.

2. Correct Score Prediction: Drawing from the teams’ recent scoring patterns, a 3-1 victory in favour of Espanyol seems plausible.

3. Goalscorer Prediction: Martin Braithwaite is the man in form for Espanyol. Having scored in three of his last four matches, predicting him to find the net in this game is well-supported by the stats.

4. Corner Forecast: Espanyol, with their attacking style, average 5.9 corners a game, as opposed to Villarreal II’s 2.3. It’s reasonable to expect Espanyol to win the corner battle. A total corner count of 8-10 for the match is a fair prediction.
