Villarreal take on the visitors Elche in the round 4 match of Spanish LaLiga. The match will be played on Sunday, September 4th at Estadi Ciutat de València (Valencia).
Villarreal, under the current coach, added in European competition, but to the detriment of performances in the domestic arena. It was with Emery that the Yellow Submarine won its first serious trophy. For Unai, it was already just a routine victory in the Europa League, and his current wards have not taken any serious title before, despite the status of a serious team. In the last season, they reached the semi-finals of the Champions League - this was possible only once, under Pellegrini. But the retribution for success in European competition was a regression in the LaLiga. So, in the spring it was only 7th final place. How will the accents be placed now? The Spaniards, having passed Hajduk, went to the group stage of the Conference League. But in the championship they started with a victory not only over Valladolid, but also with Atlético, and in Madrid ... And then they misfired, limiting themselves to only 0-0 with Getafe.

Elche are not shining yet. The "Green-striped" in recent years have been able to accustom to their stay in the LaLiga. Initially, 2 years ago, a team that almost accidentally promoted from the Segunda (from 6th place, through the playoffs) was considered an outsider. But it turned out for a start to "survive" in the top division of Spain, and in the last La Liga draw - even climb to the final 13th place. Now Francisco's wards stalled at the start. They have only taken 1 point so far, drawing at home with newcomer Almeria. On the other hand, the team lost to rather strong opponents: they started a new tempo from 0-3 in Seville with Betis, and last Saturday they did not respond to the only goal of Braim Mendez from Real Sociedad.
Having entered the LaLiga, Elche brought both fights together in his first draw with Villarreal. And in the 2021/2022 temporade, the parties exchanged home victories. Elche is not shining now, and the hosts of the arena need to use this. We recommend betting on the victory of Villarreal with a handicap of "-1 goal scored".
Prediction for the match: Villarreal to win with -1.0 handicap.
