Despite sitting in mid-table, Andoni Iraola’s boys have struggled on home soil this year, failing to win at the Campo de Futbol de Vallecas in La Liga since a 2-0 victory over Alaves on 18th December. Can they put their poor home run to bed with three points on Thursday?

Villarreal Preview – Can the Yellow Submarine get back to winning ways?

Unai Emery’s Villarreal shocked many by reaching the last four of the UEFA Champions League, where they were beaten by Premier League giants Liverpool. Their superb form in Europe’s elite club competition has impacted their league progress, as the Yellow Submarine have picked up just two league wins in seven.

Villarreal are in seventh position at present, three points away from sixth-place Real Sociedad. Emery’s men have had a tough time on their travels lately, losing four of six in all competitions.

Rayo Vallecano vs Villarreal Betting Advice

In December, Villarreal sealed a 2-0 victory over Rayo Vallecano at the Estadio de la Ceramica. Aissa Mandi opened the scoring in the first half, with a Gerard Moreno penalty doubling their advantage shortly after.

The Castellon club are undefeated in four in this fixture, winning three and drawing one. Vallecano’s last victory came in the 2015-16 La Liga season.


Key Facts – Rayo Vallecano vs Villarreal Betting Tip

  • Rayo Vallecano have not won at home in the league since December
  • Villarreal have lost three and drawn one of their last four league and cup games
  • Vallecano have not beaten the Yellow Submarine since 2016


Rayo Vallecano were outstanding at home in the first half of the season, but Iraola’s Vallecans have really struggled in front of their own fans in 2022.

Villarreal have been in patchy form of late, though we fancy them to take advantage of the home team’s poor run at the Campo de Futbol de Vallecas and leave with a big three points. The away victory is priced at 16/5.

Emery’s side kept a clean sheet in the reverse game, and you can get 2/1 for Villarreal to win to nil again in this one.
