Villareal vs. Seville: to ensure places in the European cups

The League has already found its champion and after conquering Real Madrid with four games to go, there are still important issues to be defined, such as those teams that will lose the category and those that will qualify for European competitions for next season. Indeed, next Sunday Villarreal and Sevilla will play an unmissable clash.

On the one hand, the Yellow Submarine wants to quickly refocus on La Liga considering that elimination in the Champions League semi-finals was a blow. However, there are 12 points left at stake and the goal of placing in the Europa League zone, as sports forecasts anticipate, is possible.

For its part, the situation in Seville is completely the opposite considering that it remains in the Champions League qualifying zone, although a defeat against Villarreal could be dangerous considering the closeness of Atlético Madrid and Betis.

Last Villarreal matches

Unai Émery once again placed the Yellow Submarine among the best four teams in Europe. However, history repeated itself and as sports forecasts anticipated, Villarreal was left on the verge of the final.

It is clear that the defeat against Liverpool was logical, although Villarreal knew how to put suspensive points in the semi-final second leg after going into the break with a two-goal lead. However, on matchday two the team could not withstand the intensity and Liverpool showed all their arguments for advancing to the final.

The double competition wore Villarreal down and little by little it was losing ground in La Liga until it reached the seventh position it currently occupies as a result of 52 points after 14 wins, 10 draws and the same number of losses in the tournament. Likewise, the Yellow Submarine converted 54 goals and conceded 33 points with a good goal difference that can be important in case of equality of points.

Villarreal remains out of the European cup zone, although only four points separate it from Real Sociedad, a team that today would access the Conference League, and six points from Betis, which occupies a Europa League position, the Submarine's main objective Yellow.

Analyzing in retrospect, Villarreal's last clashes in the competition were as follows: they equalized goalless against champion Real Madrid, thrashed Granada 4-1, away, thrashed Espanyol 5-1 in keeping with sports betting, fell 1-0 against Osasuna, defeated Celta de Vigo 1-0, lost by the same result against Cádiz, lost 2-0 against Levante, tied 1-1 against Athletic Bilbao, beat Getafe 2-1, 2-0 against Valencia and fell again, this time 2-1 against Alavés, on the last day.

Last Seville matches

Julen Lopetegui keeps his team focused on the goal of winning a ticket to the next edition of the Champions League. Indeed, Sevilla could not keep up with Real Madrid and although they had a more than acceptable season, they lost points with lesser teams that ended up distancing them from the dream of being crowned in the domestic tournament.

So far, Sevilla has accumulated 64 units and is in third place as a result of 17 wins, 13 draws and four falls in La Liga. In addition, he converted 50 goals and only received 28 goals in 33 games played.

The good moment of Seville is also explained by its results in recent days: it equalized 1-1 against Espanyol de Barcelona, ​​defeated Betis 2-1 in the city derby, equalized goalless against Alavés, 1-1 against Rayo Vallecano, 0 -0 against Real Sociedad, lost 1-0 against Barcelona, ​​thrashed Granada 4-2, lost 3-2 at home against Real Madrid, beat Levante 3-2 and drew 1-1 against Cádiz, on the last day.
