Villarreal v Espanyol

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Villarreal have scored exactly two or three goals in eight of their last nine home matches
Expert verdict
Having already played Sevilla and Barcelona in their first four matches, Espanyol are arguably in a false position in the table. Certainly the 2-1 win over Celta last time will have lifted morale, although it was a far from convincing success. However, Villarreal are strong at home and didn’t concede a goal against Espanyol over two games last term.
