Las Palmas - Villarreal

PICK: over 2,5 goals @1,80 PINNACLE 4/10

On Estadio de Gran Canaria, 12th Las Palmas will host 5th placed Villarreal, who is in super form lately.

Las Palmas had some problems inside the club in last weeks. Position of coach Setien for next season is still questionable, but as he said, that's less important now. They need to keep working hard and winning as many points as possible. They will miss Michel, Montoro and Castellano, while good news for Setien are that important players Mesa and Livaja are coming back after suspension.

Villarreal won 4 from last 5 matches and jumped on 5th place with same number of points like Real Sociedad and 4 points less than 4th placed Atletico Madrid. Fran Escriba, coach of Yellow submarine said that he perfectly knows, that they will need to attack and score goals, because defending against Las Palmas means that you are every minute closer to defeat. They will miss Soldado, Asenjo, Cheryshev and Adrian, which means that we can expect Sansone up front, probably with Bakambu as partner. 

I was little bit doubtful because of Villarreal who is capable to play defensively and waiting wisely on their chances, but words of their coach convinced me to go with it. I totally agree with him, that against Las Palmas with offensive threats like Boateng, Jese, Tana, Viera, Mesa.. you can not play defensively, because sooner or later you'll concede and than it could be to late to come back. For everyone who has chance, I suggest to play over 2,5 and both teams to score - odds for approx. 0,25 higher.

FT: 1-0
