Thursday, April 11th, 2019 @21:00 Estadio de la Cerámica Quarter Final Villareal 2.50| Draw 3.25| Valencia 2.95 Bet Now With Sportingbet Predictions | Betting Tips | Odds | Statistics An all Spanish affair as Valencia make the short trip up the coast to take on their La Liga rivals in this Europa League quarter final. Predictions Villarreal have continued to save their best performances for this competition this season, as they are yet to lose a single Europa League game. A 3-1 victory in St Petersburg assured an easier second leg match against Zenit in the previous round – and they will now be relishing the chance to knock out their local rivals. The bookies have Valencia favourites to go through from this tie and they have been enjoying a successful season – both domestically and in European competition. Tricky ties in the form of Celtic and Krasnodar were navigated after transferring from the Champions League and coach Marcelino will be confident of a victory here. Villarreal have been shocking in La Liga this season – although they will take some consolation from the 4-4 draw recently at home to Barcelona. The fact that they allowed their visitors to score two in the final minute will be cause for concern however – and any repeat of a collapse in this tie would give Valencia a huge boost going into the second leg. Valencia are currently in a tight race for the fourth Champions League spot in La Liga but will see this competition as an opportunity to return to their European glory days. The betting sites predict a Valencia victory and although it will probably be a close affair, the visitors could take a 2-0 lead to the Mestalla. 1×2 Prediction Bet Now With Sportingbet Score Prediction Bet Now With Sportingbet Betting Tips Valencia to win It is always difficult to predict how a game will go when both sides are from the same country, but Valencia are looking very impressive this season.

Stats It is hard to reconcile Villarreal’s dismal La Liga form with their Europa League success – especially when you consider that only Chelsea and Salzburg have created more chances than the Yellow Submarine this season. Valencia are on a very good run of form and have not lost a league game since the start of January when they were defeated by Alaves. It has been a while since Villarreal were getting to the latter stages of the Champions League – but they did make it to the semi finals of the 2016 Europa League where they were knocked out by Liverpool. Valencia made it to the final of the Champions League two years running at the start of the millennium, losing both times. But they have won the UEFA Cup since then – beating Marseille in the 2004 final.
