Las Palmas vs Villarreal – La Liga: Las Palmas: Winless for 5 matches, Las Palmas continues to fight to avoid relegation from La Liga
The team occupies the 18th position with only 20 points and they saw their situation get a little bit more complicated with Levante’s win on the round that besides closing out a long drought without victories opened up a 4-points advantage on the league table.
Even if Las Palmas win, they still stay on the relegation zone. This match got even more dramatic for the home side, with the 3 points being even more fundamental, besides facing a team that has been doing very well on the competition.
On their last match at home, the team was able to hold off Barcelona to a goalless draw, and that can give new motivation to the players.
Villarreal: Coming off 2 consecutive losses, inclusively having lost a match against a direct opponent on the fight for a spot in the Europa League,
when they lost at home against Girona by 2-0, Villarreal isn’t just looking for rehabilitation, but also to return to the 6th place they lost with Girona’s victory over Deportivo this round.
The team has a good campaign as visitors, being the 5th best so far, inclusively having beaten Real Madrid at the Bernabéu.
Las Palmas vs Villarreal – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Expectation of a very open and exciting match here, since both teams really need the 3 points.
The objectives here are different: while Las Palmas is desperately fighting to avoid relegation, Villarreal is fighting for a spot in the next Europa League.
I see some favouritism on the side of Villarreal, by having a better team that has been oscillating a lot.
Therefore, I believe on a match with goals here, and from both sides, heavily favouring our bet on the “Over 2.5 Goals & Both teams to score” selection.
