Live in-play betting – 

Villareal won their last match 3-0 which was their first major victory this season and their fans will be hoping that is the start of good things to come.

They have been plagued by injuries this season which is still troubling some of their key players.

Despite the injuries though, the Yellow Submarines have enough fit players to maintain their winning momentum as they look to climb up the league table.

With the likes of Roberto Soriano and Enes Ünal playing from the bench in their last game, they seem to have the depth to see out Espanyol in this game.

Villareal have won 4 of their last 6 home games against Espanyol.

Espanyol are also experiencing some bad luck with injuries especially to their defensive players.

Their 5-0 loss at Barcelona was the most obvious show of their defensive struggles and going away to Villarreal, they know they will have to do better than they did against the Catalans.

They played on Monday and had fewer days than their opponents to rest ahead of this game – it will be interesting to see if Quique Sanchez Flores rests some of his players ahead of their home game on Sunday or put out his best players for this game.

Espanyol have kept only a single clean sheet in their last 11 away league matches.
