Deportivo awaiting Villarreal in 18th round of Spanish Primera. Deportivo is in good shape, they are undefeated in last ten matches in all competitions, while most recently in last round of Primera divided points with Getafe on the road after goalless draw. They suffered only two defeats in this campaign against Malaga and Gijon and now are hoping that maybe can achieve another positive outcome in this campaign. Deportivo currently occupies decent 6th position and they are for sure satisfied with their results, they showed decent attacking skills while also did a solid job in defense. They have negative record in duels against Villarreal and in last five matches they suffered three defeats, celebrated only once and got one draw in their last match in previous season. Deportivo must show really outstanding performances to earn some points here against strong Villarreal. As for absent players, midfielder Celso Borges (11/1), goalkeeper Fabricio and defender Alberto Lopo (4/0) will miss this match due to injuries while forward Jonathan Rodriguez (9/0) and attacking midfielder Luis Alberto (11/2) are having problems with minor injuries and their appearances are in doubt.
Villarreal on the other hand is in great shape, they are coming here after four straight victories, three in league and one in Cup and in all four games they manged to keep a clean sheet. They suffered four defeats in league in this season, achieved ten victories and got three draws, currently are at more than decent 4th position and for sure are satisfied with results so far. In Europa league they managed to reach knockout stage as 2nd placed team in group E. Villarreal is in good shape, they will for sure give their best to continue with great results, so far they showed good performances and now are having slight advantage for this match. As we used to in Spanish Primera first three positions are taken by Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid and Villarreal can be more than satisfied with their position which leading them into qualifications for Champions league for the next season. Most of their defeats Villarreal suffered in matches on the road but now they seems pretty confident, they managed to defeat Real Madrid three rounds ago and for sure will go for a victory here. Forward Adrian (4/0) and defender Daniele (5/0) will miss this match due to injuries, while appearances of defenders Eric Bailly (15/1) and Jaume Costa (16/1) are questionable due to a minor injuries.
Deportivo achieved good results so far and they are in decent shape but now have really hard task to achieve positive outcome against strong opponents, while Villarreal is in great shape at the moment and for sure will give their best to continue in the same manner, I expect great and open match with plenty of chances and both teams to score.
