THE PREDICTION

Villarreal have been in fine form since the restart and have won three and drawn one of their four matches as they push for the European places. Valencia on the other hand have been struggling amid rumours of dressing unrest and unhappiness with head coach Albert Celades. Their away form especially has been poor losing 3-0 to Real Madrid and 1-0 to Eibar last time out, while Celades is not helped by some ill-discipline and poor defending. They will have their hands full against this in-form Villarreal attack who can compound their problems and pile the pressure on Celades.
