Preview:
Villarreal and Rapid Wien meet at Camp El Madrigal, in a match for this stage of the UEFA Europa League (Group Stage). Both teams register significant differences between home and away results, so the home/away factor is worth atention.

Analysis of Villarreal

The home team is currently in the 2nd position, with 9 points won, after 3 wins and 1 loss. In the penultimate round, they have won a home match against Dinamo Minsk by (4‑0). In the last round, they have won an away match against Dinamo Minsk by (1‑2). This is a team that, oddly enough, has had better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 8 wins, 4 draws and 3 losses in away matches; against 8 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses at their stadium. In their last match, for the Primera División, they got a home tie against Eibar by (1‑1). In the last 10 home matches Villarreal has won 8, tied 1 and lost 1. Their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in all of the last 4 matches for this competition. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 6 times, but have turned the score around in 2.

Villarreal has proven its worth in La Liga. They are currently in the 4th position of the Spanish league, having already faced strong teams, only 3 points behind Real Madrid. In this Europa League, they have been considered the favourites, but they are in the 2nd position of the group. Despite facing the leader of the group in this match, the Spanish team should make good use of the home advantage to get the 3 points and the lead of the group. They surely have enough quality to do just so.

Confirmed Lineup: M. Barbosa, Mario Gaspar, A. Rukavina, Víctor Ruíz, Jaume Costa, Samu Castillejo, Denis Suárez, J. dos Santos, Bruno, C. Bakambu, Soldado.
Coach: Marcelino.

Analysis of Rapid Wien

The away team is currently in the 1st position, with 12 points won, after 4 wins. In the penultimate round, they have won a home match against Viktoria Plzeň by (3‑2). In the last round, they have won an away match against Viktoria Plzeň by (1‑2). This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 9 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses in away matches, with 34 goals scored and 19 conceded; against 9 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses at their stadium, with 32 goals scored and 18 conceded. In their last match, for the Bundesliga, they got an away win against Mattersburg by (1‑6). In the last 10 away matches Rapid Wien has won 5, tied 2 and lost 3.

In this competition, they have a sequence of 4 wins in the last matches. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 3 of the last 4 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored at least one goal in each of the last 4 matches for this competition. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 6 times but have turned the score around in 2.

Rapid Vienna has benefited from the fact that their national league is less competitive, so they have been able to focus almost entirely on this European competition. Although they clearly aren’t one of the greatest European teams, they have had good exhibitions, including in the home win against this very same opponent. However, the tables have turned and Rapid is now the away team, so they face their biggest challenge so far this season.

Confirmed Lineup: J. Novota, M. Sonnleitner, M. Pavelic, C. Dibon, S. Stangl, S. Hofmann, P. Schobesberger, F. Kainz, S. Schwab, T. Petsos, P. Prosenik.
Coach: Z. Barisic.

Betting suggestion:

Villarreal has many things going for them. The only negative issue is that they are behind Rapid in the table, but that may change after this match. They seem to have the advantage in anything else, so we believe they are clear favourites to win, especially if they make good use of the superior quality of their squad.
