Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
After shocking league leaders Barcelona at the weekend, Almeria will look to give fans yet another reason to celebrate when they face Villarreal on Matchday 24. The Andalusians did well to put an end to their three-game losing run, but their La Liga status is still in great danger. El Bilal Toure should keep his place up front after getting his name on the scoresheet in the previous two league matches, while there are no fresh injury worries in the home team.
The Yellow Submarine, on the other hand, desperately needed a win against Getafe, and they managed to get one, with the team moving closer to the Europa League berth. Villarreal produced an excellent display on Monday evening, and we predict that they will pick up all three points from Saturday’s clash as well. In the first half of the season the Yellow Submarine defeated the Andalusians 2-1. Manu Trigueros is back from suspension, while Francis Coquelin remains in the recovery room.
