Our match prediction:
Thanks to a goalless draw with Celta Vigo Villarreal extended their unbeaten run in all competitions to 10 games. The Yellow Submarine are on the right track to book their place in the Champions League qualifiers and it has to be noted that they are just four points behind third-placed Real Madrid in the La Liga standings. Marcelino’s troops have been impressive at the back of late and given that they conceded only one goal in previous eight games in all competitions, we would not be surprised if they managed to keep a clean sheet in Saturday’s encounter against los Amarillos. Villarreal are eyeing their fifth consecutive win at home and taking into account that Las Palmas are not regarded as good travellers, we predict that the visitors will return to Gran Canaria empty-handed. The two sides played out a goalless draw in the reverse fixture.
