The La Liga league table might not tell the truth so early on, but it's the best truth we have so far. Villarreal and Valencia are placed 4th and 8th respectively.

We should expect both teams to be fresh and ready for this match, as there is some time since both teams last played. Let's have a look at how the teams are doing!

Villarreal form and stats

Villarreal, who have the most points (7) at home in La Liga, have collected seven points from their first three La Liga games here at Estadio de la Cerámica, a promising start. Two home wins in a row for Villarreal bring valid hopes of a third.

An away draw last time out for Villarreal, facing Atlético Madrid in a game that ended 0-0. Ahead of that match, Villarreal won a home game hosting Deportivo Alavés (3-1).

The hosts are favourites to win this game, with an estimated chance of about 55-60% of that outcome. Earlier Villarreal matches with similar probabilities have ended with four wins, zero draws and three defeats (from seven games).

Another home game is coming up fairly shortly for the hosts, as Sivasspor are coming to town in four days.

Villarreal can score goals in their home matches. After 3 league matches they have found the net 6 times. On the other hand, Villarreal have conceded 3 goals.

Valencia form and stats

Valencia are doing rather OK so far in their away games in the La Liga, having played 2 games and collected 3 points (1 win, 0 draws and 1 loss).

Valencia might have something to prove in this game as they lost at home in their previous match. Real Betis proved too strong as Valencia slumped to a 0-2 defeat in front of their own fans at Estadio de Mestalla. Preceding that game was the away victory against Real Sociedad with the score of 1-0.

It's a bit worrying for Valencia that their goalkeeper Jaume Doménech made six saves in the Real Betis game last time out, but still couldn''t prevent the loss.

Looking at the earlier recent performances of Valencia when being an outsider away as they are today, we find three matches with the visitors losing one time, drawing zero and winning two games.

As for goals scored and conceded in the league games away so far, Valencia has managed 2 goals and let in 2 from 2 matches.

Head 2 Head

Head-to-head totals (for the last ten meetings): Villarreal won four games, one match ended with a draw and Valencia has five wins. Over 2,5 goals / under 2,5 goals: five / five
