Villarreal vs Sevilla Preview

  • Date – Saturday, May 11
  • Kick-off Time – 3:15 pm GMT
  • Venue – El Madrigal

Villarreal will host struggling Sevilla in a crucial weekend clash in La Liga on Saturday, May 11. Both sides are fighting for European qualification this season, with this game potentially being a thriller at El Madrigal.

The Yellow Submarines find themselves in the ninth position in the league table and are coming off a 3-2 away loss against bottom-placed Celta Vigo in its last game. But they have only managed to keep one clean sheet in their last eight fixtures. The hosts have had an underwhelming campaign and will see themselves finish with fewer points compared to the last campaign

Sevilla are sitting at 12th in the league table and are coming off a 3-0 home win against Granada in its last game. The Yellow Submarines have been underperforming throughout the campaign and have struggled on their travels. They have been a consistent performer in La Liga and other European competitions over the last two decades.

Villarreal vs Sevilla Prediction

Sevilla have had their own share of turmoil with a disappointing domestic performance that finds them 13th in the league table. The Andalusians are five shy of 9th-placed Getafe Villarreal and a top-half finish seems plausible for Quique Sanchez Flores’s men.

Meanwhile, Villarreal have been witnessing an underwhelming season as they struggled for consistency in the first half of the 2023/24 season. Marcelino’s men are nine points off sixth-placed Real Sociedad in the race to secure European action next season. The Yellow Submarines are under their third manager of the campaign after the sackings of both Quique Setien and Pacheta earlier this campaign. They still have a puncher’s chance of finishing sixth or seventh, which would see them qualify for Europe next term.
