Villarreal x Bayer Leverkusen
The team from Leverkusen conceded three or more goals in each of the last three matches, although their opponents were not very strong. Villarreal, on the contrary, concede very little. Their 620-minutes streak without conceded goals in the league ended only in the last match. This was the record in Villarreal’s history and best result in Spain this year.
Villarreal’s season is, in general, more successful than Bayer’s, and Spanish clubs rarely lose in two-leg confrontations in Europe to foreigners. So, Marcelino’s team has an excellent chance to win at home. Villarreal are dreaming of winning the Europa League, which could be the first trophy for the club.
Moreover, they’ve just lost to Las Palmas at home, and another home game will come in handy. Villarreal will try to improve the situation.
