Villarreal take on the visitors Slavia Prague at “Estadio de la Ceramica” in the gameweek three of the UEFA Europa League Group stage. The match will be played in Villareal on Thursday, October 19th.
Villarreal haven’t failed in three recent battles, having won two latest clashes 3:0 vs. Eibar and 2:1 over Girona. With eight LaLiga rounds behind, “El Submarino Amarillo” settles on the eighth place in the standings with 13 points earned. In the UEFA Europa League the Spaniards share the first-second positions in Group A with Slavia Prague, having gained four points with 3-1 goal difference after 3:1 triumph over FC Astana and 0:0 draw against Maccabi Tel Aviv. The Spaniards conducted only four encounters in front of their supporters in this season, having got three victories and single draw in them.

Slavia Prague have not been broken since the 19th of August across 11 clashes in which the side recorded six wins and five draws. After 10 matchdays played in Czech 1. Liga, Ruslan Rotan‘s team has 22 points taken with 15-2 goal difference. In the UEFA Europa League Slavia Prague defeated Maccabi Tel Aviv 2:1 and deserved 0:0 draw against FC Astana, having picked up four points in two battles. The Czechs have not been beaten in last five encounters on the road covering four draws and single victory.
It will be the first head-to-heads for the rivals. The Spaniards are on fire now while Slavia Prague which have signed many strong players this summer, feel themselves comfortable in Eurocups. I believe that it will be a tough fight with not many goals scored in it.
Prediction for the match: Under 3.0 scored goals.
