Villarreal vs Ponferradina – Copa del Rey : Villarreal and Ponferradina face off this Thursday at the El Madrigal…
On a 2nd leg match of the Copa del Rey’s round of 32.
Villarreal occupies the 6th place in La Liga with 21 points conquered, recording 6 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses.
As we know, this team’s performance at the El Madrigal is traditionally very positive, and this season it has been the same, with them having conquered 13 out of 18 possible points in La Liga.
Regarding their goals ratio, they have 21 goals scored and 15 goals conceded, which results on an average of 2.8 goals per match.
The highlight then goes to their great finishing ability of the Yellow Submarine that this season present an excellent average of 2 goals scored per match as hosts.
Ponferradina occupies the 19th position on the Segunda B – Group 1 with 13 points conquered. On the 16 rounds already played, the visiting side has 3 wins, 4 draws and 9 losses.
On the goals chapter they have 16 goals scored and 20 goals conceded. However, their performance away from home is even more negative, only getting 2 points out of 24 possible.
On this condition, they only have 3 goals scored and 13 goals conceded, which is a good sign of their weak performance when they play away from their fans.
Villarreal vs Ponferradina – Betting Tip and Prediction:
On the 1st leg, Ponferradina won 1-0 against a Villareal that presented their reserves’ team. Even without their starters, Villareal had countless chances and wasted a lot of good goal opportunities.
This time, at the El Madrigal, counting with their best players, victory won’t escape the Yellow Submarine. The attacking arguments of the hosts will mark the difference against a defence that has shown weaknesses away from home.
I expect a comfortable win for Javier Revilla’s pupils that should score at least 3 goals.
