Villarreal vs Lyon – Europa League : In one of the several matches being played this Thursday of the Europa League’s round of 32
On the 2nd leg of these knockout ties
The local side Villarreal and the visiting side Lyon face off in the city of Villarreal, at the El Madrigal stadium,
on a match between two teams that will meet again after the 1st leg, last week, where the French won 3-1.
The home side is making a very positive campaign so far, making a considerably positive run domestically and even having had a decent performance at the European level, although things could end prematurely after the loss suffered last week in Lyon.
The team is now on a streak of poor results, not winning for 4 consecutive matches, still having to recover from a 2-goals disadvantage on this Europa League’s knockout tie.
As for the visiting side, they are making a very positive campaign and also doing well in the domestic league, within their possibilities.
When it comes to the Europa League, the 3 goals they’ve scored in Lyon might be fundamental to ensure their presence on the next round of this competition, although the goal that was conceded might also make a difference.
The team is coming off a streak of results with some alternation, experiencing all the possible results on the last 3 matches they’ve played, where the team scored but also conceded a lot of goals (5 and 5, respectively).
Villarreal vs Lyon – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Since the tie tends to be leaning towards the French, given the advantage and the number of goals they’ve scored, but also considering the goal scored away from home by the Spaniards,
I believe that the first goal in this match will trigger a couple more, since neither of these teams will have anything to lose, especially Villarreal.
