Our football match prediction:
Estadio de la Ceramica will host Saturday’s football game between Villarreal and Valencia. The Yellow Submarine aim to put an end to their five-game winless run in all competitions, but beating the relegation-threatened visitors is easier said than done. Villarreal head into the game following a goalless draw with Deportivo La Coruna and it has to be noted that they hold Barcelona to a 1-1 draw in their last home fixture. Over the years Fran Escriba’s team have turned their Camp El Madrigal into a real fortress and we predict that the hosts will find the net on Matchday 19. Los Che, on the other hand, recorded a 2-1 win over Espanyol at the weekend, which was their first win in the league since October 16. Valencia, though, still sit in the danger zone in the La Liga standings, meaning that they are likely to go for a win in Saturday’s clash.
Highligted Player (Roberto Soldado):
Roberto Soldado is regarded as one of the most famous footballers in the history of Villarreal. The meaning of his surname in Spanish is “the warrior” and it has to be noted that he began his football career at Real Madrid, playing from the B team between 2002 and 2006. The pacey attacker made 16 appearances and scored two goals for the first team, but he was producing the best performances of his career during his three-year spell at Valencia. Soldado scored 59 goals in 101 appearances for los Che, but in 2013 he signed a deal with Tottenham Hotspur for a fee of £26 million. The Spanish attacker, who was born on 27 May, 1985 in Valencia, scored for the Spurs on his debut in a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace, but he netted the goal from the penalty spot. Soldado failed to impress in the 2014/2015 Premier League campaign with Tottenham and, as a result, he was sold to Villarreal on 14 August, 2015. Speaking of his international career, the Villarreal attacker made his Spain debut in June, 2007 against Latvia.
