Villarreal is going to welcome one of the surprises in the quarter-finals of the Europa League Sparta Prague. Take a look at our football prediction.
After removing Napoli and Bayer Leverkusen in the previous two rounds, Villarreal needs to reinforce its good performance against Sparta Prague. Yellow submarine is in a series of nine shutouts in the tournament, but the Czech team certainly is capable of putting an end to their good performance, if the team underestimated its rival.
Villarreal is on the fourth place in the Primera and has an advance of 8 points ahead of the fifth goal. It seems that the `yellow submarine` will find a place in the Top four and qualify for the Champions League qualifiers. Their good games in La Liga are topped with wonderful results in the Europa League, where the team has not made it to the final from best betting picks in its history and will try to do it this season.
`Yellow` achieved success in each of their last five home games in the competition and they will seek to maintain their sixth consecutive win. The good news for fans is that Jonathan dos Santos and Jaume Costa have recovered from their respective injuries, but Bonera and Musacio remain out of Commission for the upcoming game. Antonio Rukavina was punished, so Marcelinho will have to deal with a lot of problems in the defense before household of Sparta Prague.
The guests shocked Lazio in the 1/8 finals and after classic success in Rome, they fell into the top eight of the Europa League. After a 1:1 draw in the first game with the Eagles, Sparta Prague demonstrated a great performance at the Stadio Olimpico and surprised many experts with the classification for this phase of the tournament. The team is in a series of three consecutive wins as a guest, marking a total of nine goals in those matches. In the 1/16-finals, the Czechs were also more than convincing winning with 3:0 in the visit to the team of Krasnodar.
Even more striking is the fact that Sparta would not defeat in the Europa League this season. It has had 3 draws and 3 wins in the group stage, and the direct eliminations won three times with only one draw and one goal allowed.
However, whether the Czech fairy tale will continue, we`re going to find out on Thursday night. Certainly the Spanish team is the favorite in the clash, but its good game at home lately makes us give them the advantage in the first leg. They will be eager to make a good advance before the return leg in Prague next week and we expect them to win the match.
