Valencia vs Villarreal – After losing to Cadiz 2-1 in their previous La Liga match, Valencia will be looking for a better outcome this time around.

Valencia enjoyed 60% of the game’s possession and only one of its 16 shots on goal were on goal. Samuel Lino was the lone scorer for Valencia (51′).

With eight tries at goal, Cádiz was successful in two. Cádiz scored goals through Gonzalo Escalante (39′) and Sergi Guardiola (46′).

Recently, Valencia hasn’t displayed their defensive steel nearly enough. They will be concerned because Valencia have allowed eight goals while failing to stop opponents from scoring in five of their last six matches.

Valencia had lost their previous two league games to Villarreal coming into this one.

Villarreal enters this contest having defeated Celta Vigo 3-1 in their previous La Liga match.

Villarreal enjoyed 52% of the possession in that game and three of their nine shots on goal were successful. Ramón Terrats (70′) and Nicolas Jackson (2′, 12′) scored the goals for Villarreal.

Celta Vigo, their rivals, had 14  total attempts, five shots at goal with only one of them being successful. For Celta Vigo, Jorgen Strand Larsen scored after 29 seconds.

The numbers don’t lie, and Villarreal have allowed goals in five of their last six games while having nine goals scored against them.

Villarreal simply hasn’t been that reliable defensively. Whether or not that tendency continues into this upcoming game will be a fascinating thing to watch.

In the previous four league games against Valencia, Villarreal had failed to prevail while playing them away from home. Not one of the best road records.
