Аnother elimination round in the Europa League is coming. There are only eight clubs left, which means that at this stage the teams are strong. The games become more intriguing and the opponents – more conqurrent. Except two opponents.
The draw decision is Villarreal and Sparta Prague to face each other in the quarterfinal of the Europa League. The Spanish are definitely delighted with the draw, while all potential opponents seemed a serious challenge to the Czech club. Logically Villarreal enters the match as a favorite and no one doubts this.
The new star of the club – Cedric Bakambu – is the leading goal scorer with his 11 goals in the Spanish league and 5 goals in this year’s Europa League. It is logical that he will be the main threat for the Czech team. It should not underestimate the team spirit in the club and the great collective that brought prestigious victories over the Italian Napoli and the German Bayer Leverkusen.
Sparta Prague is an outsider in the game, but surly hopes to be understate by the Spanish team. The Czechs have nothing to lose and will be psychologically unencumbered. The fans will hardly be disappointed with the outcome of the match if their team loses, because Sparta Prague exceeded its plan to pass through the groups. Furthermore, the team was able to defeat the Russian Kuban Krasnodar team and the Italian Lazio, which brought much joy to the supporters.
My prediction is an easy win for Villarreal as bookmakers give odds around 1.50 this happen. Sportingbet and William Hill even offering odds 1.55 for a home win. The gamblers could bet serious amount of money on that tip. Sparta Prague is a team that rarely allows goals, so I predict a win for Villarreal with 1 or maximum 2 goals. Logically, I suggest a bet on under 2.5 goals in the match, ass 188bet offers coefficient 1.80 for this to happen.
