Villarreal vs Marseille Match Preview and Prediction

Villarreal vs MarseilleIn their last eight La Liga games, Villarreal has not lost. In three of the previous four games in all competitions, Marseille scored four goals or more. In the preceding three league games, El Submarino Amarillo scored eleven goals.

Marseille easily defeated Villarreal 4-0 in the first leg of their match seven days ago at the Stade Orange Velodrome, thereby ending their round of 16 match. From the first kickoff to the very end, the French team dominated play and created numerous opportunities in front of the opposing goal.

On Thursday night at the Estadio de la Ceramica, Villarreal will be looking to at least make the right impression. El Submarino Amarillo defeated Real Betis 3-2 on the road on Sunday in an effort to recover domestically. It was Marcelino’s team’s third straight victory in La Liga.

Marseille had a successful weekend as well. On Sunday, they defeated Nantes 2-0 thanks to a brace from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Thus, Les Phocians have once again demonstrated their impressive form, winning five games in a row in the process. Only six points separate Jean Louis Gasset’s team from third-place Monaco in the Ligue 1 rankings; their position is seventh.

Villarreal vs Marseille: Betting Analysis

Seven days ago at the Stade Orange Velodrome, Marseille destroyed Villarreal 4-0 in their first competitive head-to-head match. In their prior encounters with Villarreal, Marseille had a victory in 2018 and a draw in 2021. In this encounter, can Villarreal win for the first time?

Despite having a four-goal disadvantage, Villarreal will probably have an uphill struggle to win this Thursday in what will likely be the final game of European football. El Submarino Amarillo has recently shown a great deal of efficiency in the last part of La Liga. Eight league games later, Marcelino’s team is unbeaten.

They’ve defeated Barcelona in the Catalan capital with five goals earlier, and they’ve scored eleven goals in their last three victories at home. Despite Marseille’s recent success, Gasset may decide to rest several members of his starting lineup for Sunday’s derby against Rennes because of the first leg’s result. Villarreal is our pick to win at 2.20 odds.

With eleven goals, El Submarino Amarillo has won its last three league games. They had scored in all five La Liga games. Marseille scored four goals or more in three of their previous four games in all competitions. Additionally, Les Phocians had only one clean sheet in eleven road games across all competitions. At 1.53, we have every reason to back Over 2.5 goals FT.
