Now they will be up against Villarreal. Can they pull up this one too? Let’s see what Villarreal vs Sevilla betting odds and predictions have to say.

Villarreal vs Sevilla Total Goals 2.5 (Over/Under)
Sevilla is not in good shape. They have managed a win against Espanyol in their last game, but their past three failures ( two in LaLiga, one in the champions league) can’t be overlooked. Julen Lopetegui‘s team is 16th in the league’s table, and any setback at this stage might crush their dream to reach on top.
At the other end is Villarreal, a team that has fared well in their campaign. On their way, they have managed a thrilling 4-0 home victory against Elche and morale-boosting away win against Atlético Madrid (2-0) and Real Valladolid (3-0). Moreover, they have maintained a positive rapport in the Championship arena, defeating Lech Poznan (4-3) in their first game.
But they suffered a setback against their direct competitors for the European competitions – Real Betis. Not only Betis defeated them 1-0, but it also pushed them further back from their second place in the league. Therefore, if Villareal wishes to continue their good run in the current season, they must pick themselves up in their home and defeat Sevilla.
