Salzburg vs Villarreal Prediction & Tips
The Europa League restarts and one of the round of 32 sees Salzburg and Villarreal face off. The Austrians come from the Champions League in which they finished group A, that of Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid, in third place. The team owned by Red Bull is in a positive period and is first in the league with 40 points, three points higher than Rapid Vienna. A more complicated season for Villarreal which is experiencing a complicated moment with five unsuccessful league games that have brought it down to sixth place in the ranking with 36 points. The progress in the Europa League was excellent with sixteen points resulting from five wins and a draw that earned first place in group I. Particularly interesting is the challenge in attack where the hosts can count on the couple Koita-Daka, 27 goals in two in championship, while the Spaniards have Gerard Moreno in pink, 13 goals in La Liga and on the podium of the top scorer ranking behind only Suarez and Messi.
Salzburg are back from six straight victories between the league and the Austrian Cup
In the same period, the Red Bull team conceded only three goals, scoring 14.
The Austrians can count on an atomic attack with 64 goals scored in the season between the league and the Champions League in 24 games.
Negative moment instead for Villarreal who arrive at the Europa League match after a streak of four games without a win.
Our prediction for the first leg of the Europa League round of 32 between Salzburg and Villarreral sees the hosts as favorites. Salzburg has a squad with many young people with pure talent and must win at home at all costs in order not to have to try a very difficult feat in Spain. Villarreal are not going through a great period and therefore, in our opinion, could capitulate in Austria.
