Villarreal vs Valencia betting tips, predictions and preview for the Europa League quarter final match on Thursday 11th April 2019. Who will get the first leg advantage in this all Spanish tie tonight? See our predictions and betting tips below.
This all Spanish affair could be a wide open match as both sides look for a first leg advantage.
Villarreal drew 4-4 with Barcelona in their last home game but haven’t won in their last three.
These two sides are separated by less than 50 miles.
Goals are the order of the day for our betting tips on this match and that means a good chance to get a winning anytime goalscorer. Villarreal’s last game at home was a remarkable 4-4 draw with Barcelona and they’ll still be wondering how they didn’t get all three points.
In the match, there were four different scorers for Villarreal and they’ve been sharing the goals around all season. In this competition, Gerard Moreno is leading the charts with four and their La Liga top scorer Karl Toko Ekambi has two.
Valencia dropped down from the Champions League after being handed a tough group and they have also been sharing the goals around their team this season with Dani Parejo leading the La Liga charts on six.
For tonight’s anytime goalscorer bet, we’re going for in-form Villarreal striker Karl Toko Ekambi, who has scored four goals in his last four matches now. He’s favourite with some bookies but if you use Unibet you’ll get the much superior odds of 5/2 for this selection.
This all La Liga affair could be an exciting match tonight judging by the recent form of both teams. Seven of Villarreal’s last eight matches have had three or more goals in them with their last four games ending 2-1, 4-4, 3-2 and 3-1.
Valencia aren’t as open in their play but have recently beat Real Madrid 2-1 and then lost 2-0 against Rayo Vallecano, so they are by no means reliable. In this competition so far they beat Celtic home and away and won the home leg against Krasnador in the last round, before drawing the away leg 1-1.
Valencia will be keen to get an away goal tonight and that’s why both teams to score looks a great bet in this one. The odds for this are 20/23 with Ladbrokes.
The last of tonight’s Valencia vs Villarreal predictions is the correct score and we’re taking a chance on this being a high scoring affair at El Madrigal.
This is largely based on Villarreal’s recent form and hopefully they’ll keep their high scoring up, as well as high goals against rate. There is every chance this could be a more cagey affair but at odds of 15/1, a 2-2 correct score bet looks a god bet to get a run for your money on tonight’s Europa League matches.
