Valencia won the UEFA Cup 15 years ago - the predecessor of the UEFA Europa League. A triumph that led to Villarreal in the semi-finals, when the two Spanish clubs, just 60 kilometres apart, had met in an international competition. The first leg game was first held at the Estadio de la Cerámica in Villarreal. After a goalless draw, Valencia's Murciélagos scored a 1:0 win at home for their place in the final. Now the yellow submarine would like to return the favour 15 years later and enter the semi-finals of this competition for the fourth time in the club's history after 2004, 2011 and 2016.
A total of 46 clashes between Villarreal and Valencia are recorded, including the two duels in the 2004 UEFA Cup semi-final. In the two international competitive games between the neighbours in eastern Spain fell with a goalless draw in the first leg and a narrow 1:0 win at the home of the “Bats” in the second leg only a single goal. In general, "Los Ches" lead the direct comparison but with 19 games won scarce, the Yellow Submarine has won ten games, draws also 17 times against the Taronges. Incidentally, both games have already been played in La Liga.
In short, in this all-Spanish duel, there is much to say that both sides will clearly focus on the defensive. Incidentally, this fits in with their performance in La Liga, where just in the game forward on both sides rarely took place a spectacle. In the end, even a single goal could be the rash in both teams. Valencia is the most sustainable bet in placing a bet on a maximum of one team. Villarreal against Valencia have odds of up to 2.50 * (@ Betfair), which adds value to the game. With five units we play the tip accordingly.
