– Villarreal went smoothly Sparta Prague in double disputed in the previous phase of the Europa League. Spaniards have won 6-3 on aggregate and we could say that were fortunate enough to encounter a more accessible opponent. However, it must not forget that the band prepared by Marcelino has already lifted Bayer Leverkusen groups such as Naples or so it has the power to do a victim-known in European football. It can be seen that at the moment, “yellow submarine” does not cross a bad shape. It has a series of three competitive matches without a win, only stronger opponent who met the Real Madrid. I must however add that in the current edition of the competition, Villarreal won all six clashes that took place on its own arena.
– Liverpool is on wave after sensational victory which obtained it in front of Dortmund. Remember that Jürgen Klopp’s band had a comeback in return, managed to impose 4-3 after 65 minutes was ruled 3-1. “Cormorants” crosses a very good form and are unbeaten in the last seven competitive matches. They have a series of five games in which they scored at least two goals and is doing increasingly better regarding construction. Actually at the moment, the main problem seems to be team defense. It can be seen that it collects empty almost every game so it does nothing eight of the last nine official matches ended with “Gol / Gol”. I must also mention that Liverpool never lost any of the 12 duels that occurred in the current edition of the Europa League.
As you can see, all the journeys made by Liverpool in the current edition of the competition ended with under 2.5 goals. The same is true for four of the six matches in which he was engaged Villarreal at home. This duel is extremely important, and given that it is only the first leg is quite likely that the two combatants not to take unnecessary risks. It can be seen that the hosts are extremely powerful in terms of defensive and the Europa League, earned one goal at home. I think that tonight we will not see very many forays into the area 16 meters and is quite likely that the match to end with under 2.5 goals.
