Pick Over 2.5
Villarreal welcomes Sevilla to the Estadi Ciutat de Valencia for this match in the La Liga. The home team are in 5th position with 10 points while the visitors are in 16th position with four points. Villareal lost their last league match 1-0 to Real Betis which was their first defeat of the season. They also conceded their first goal after keeping clean sheets in their first four matches. Villareal have been in excellent form in the Europa Conference League winning their opening two matches and currently topping their group. They will come into this match with confidence as they are unbeaten in their last four home matches against Sevilla. The home team are in a great run of form dating back to the pre-season as they have only lost once in their last 19 matches across all competitions.
Sevilla made a disastrous start to their campaign with three losses and a draw in their opening four matches which led to speculation that manager Julen Lopetegui could be facing the axe. The team has responded to these threats by claiming their first league win in their last match against Espanyol and then followed up with a goalless draw away to Copenhagen in the Champions League. This match will provide the real test for Sevilla as Villareal have won their only league home match by a four goal margin. Sevilla have only won one of their last seven matches across all competitions with four losses and two draws.
