Live on Skysports 1: Sun 18.00 & 20.00: Fresh from an inpressive Europa League display, Villarreal are 10/11 (Ladbrokes) to beat Sevilla.
With a defeat to Barcelona their only La Liga reverse since the opening day loss to Sociedad, Villarreal are building up a reputation of being resilient and it shows as they currently lead the pack in La Liga, below the big two.
Sevilla cannot find rythym at all and at 7/2 (), don’t really appeal here. After 3 straight losses (to nil) they got a necessary win over bottom placed Zaragoza, as most do with any pretence of finishing in the top half, but followed it up with 2 home losses and a bit of a thumping at PSG in the Europa League.
This is Villarreal’s game should they decide to play it sensibly and even the 12/5 at Betfred with a -1 handicap about the Yellow Submarine can be achieved with the red hot Rossi to score anytime, 13/8 at Boylesports.
Later on, barely anything separates Sociedad and Bilbao in the table, just a couple of goals infact, but it’s the home side, Sociedad, that take it at 7/5 with Ladbrokes. The newly promoted Sociedad have been holding their own of late, scoring in the last 8 matches is a noteworthy achievement. Compare this with the fact that Bilbao have scored in every league game this season and the 4/6 at bodog for both teams to score is, whilst short, appealing.
