Bet of the Day: Villarreal to extend winning run against Espanyol
They have a great record against Los Periquitos
Villarreal made a shaky start to the current campaign, losing both of their opening two games. They’ve been much improved lately, winning three on the bounce in all competitions.
They’ll be looking to make it four wins in a row against Espanyol in La Liga tonight.
Recent history suggests the Yellow Submarines should be confident – they’ve only lost one of their last 17 games against Los Periquitos.
Villarreal have scored three goals in each of their last three games. And the Coral News Team have tipped them to do it again – today’s Coral Bet of the Day is Villarreal to win and Over 2.5 Goals at 15/8.
Bakambu to score?
Villarreal boss Fran Escriba will be encouraged by what he’s seen from Carlos Bacca and Cedric Bakambu’s strike partnership so far.
Bacca has netted in the last two league appearances, while Bakambu has three goals in his last two appearances.
Bakambu has also scored on Espanyol’s two most recent visits to the Estadio de la Ceramica. The DR Congo international is 6/4 to score Anytime.
Home Clean Sheet?
Espanyol didn’t score in either of the two meetings between these clubs last term.
They’ve not been firing recently either. Quique Sanchez Flores’ side have scored just three goals in league action so far this season. Only two clubs have a lower total.
Villarreal are 9/5 to shut them out and Win to Nil.
