Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Valencia and Villarreal face each other at Estadio de Mestalla in the opening match of Wednesday’s program. Los Che aim to recover from a 2-1 loss to Cadiz and they are likely to fight tooth and nail in the midweek clash. Fit-again winger Samu Castillejo is pushing for a start, while Marcos de Sousa remains on the sidelines with a meniscus problem. Both Justin Kluivert and Cristian Rivero are major doubts and the duo will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
The Yellow Submarine, on the other hand, proved their worth in back-to-back wins over Espanyol (4-2) and Celta Vigo (3-1). The visitors are eager to stay in the Champions League race and seeing that the relegation-threatened are eager to pick up all three points from the match as well, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. All Jose Luis Morales, Kiko Femenia, and Francis Coquelin are sidelined with injuries, while Gerard Moreno is a major doubt.
Highlighted Player (Edinson Cavani):
Edinson Cavani is a professional footballer who plays for Paris Saint-Germain as a striker. The Uruguayan attacker was born in Salto on 14 February, 1987 and he began his senior career at Danubio. In 2007 he moved to Europe, signing a deal with Serie A outfit Palermo.

You should have in mind that Cavani scored a brace on his Napoli debut against Elfsborg in the Europa League. The Uruguay forward scored 78 goals in 104 Serie A games for the Partenopei and, as a result, big-spending French club PSG decided to sign him in 2013.
Cavani scored 19 goals for les Parisiens in the 2015/2016 Ligue 1 campaign, but he was in Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s shadow during the season and he started a number of games from the bench.
