Espanyol vs Villarreal Predictions and Betting Tips

Espanyol betting tips

Espanyol vs Villarreal predictions, betting tips and match preview for today’s Copa Del Rey match in Spain. The first game ended in a 2-2 draw and we’re predicting more goals for our football betting tips tonight.

Neither of these sides are going into this match in good form, with Espanyol winning just once in their last six and Villarreal failing to win in five (although they have drawn four of those), it could be another high scoring match so our best bet is a high scoring draw.

Espanyol vs Villarreal Predictions

The visitors were on a run of four straight draws before losing at home to Getafe at the weekend, and that run included the 2-2 draw in the first leg of this Copa Del Rey clash. The Yellow Submarine sit down in 19th place in the La Liga table and are looking all set for a relegation battle come the end of the season – they are going along nicely in the cup though and smashed eight past Almeria in one of the earlier rounds following a 3-3 draw in the first leg.

Espanyol scraped past Cadiz in the last round and have only won two of their last ten games. It has been a tough run for them but there are usually goals in their matches, that is why our correct score prediction for this clash is the 2-2 draw.

Given that both teams seem happy to score goals and not defend particularly well, a bet on over 2.5 goals could be a wise investment tonight. The start to the season that Espanyol made has tapered off but they still sit comfortably in mid-table with no signs of a relegation battle on the horizon. They raced into a 2-0 lead in the first leg only to be pegged back and that defensive vunerability could be their downfall again tonight.

The odds for over 2.5 goals in this Copa Del Rey match are 10/11 with William Hill and given that this has happened in six of Villarreal’s last eight matches, and in seven of Espanyol’s last ten, it looks a good bet.
