Las Palmas vs Villarreal by DamirJ
Las Palmas is coming from a tragic 0:5 defeat on the road against one of the top teams in Segunda right now, Girona. Although they had one of the most in-form teams as an opponents, their own performance wasn't acceptable, entering the game without fighting spirit with tragic defensive mistakes during whole match.
This year's team is looking as one of the most talented teams Las Palmas had for years, but their main problem is the psychological part, as they enter most of their matches indifferent, without fighting spirit. Atmosphere between coaching stuff and directors isn't well either after such a defeat as everyone in the club feel ashamed and the loss isn't acceptable in such a manner. However, their next game won't be any easier, as they surely approach against the best team with individual quality in Segunda - team that surely has enough potential and quality to play in Primera.
After five matches and only one won game, there is no other option for the hosts but to search for a victory here. However, their biggest worry remain their defense which is making big errors in every game, just as their attack that scored only four goals in five games. Midfielder Francis Suarez who played four matches till now is injured, just as substitute goalkeeper Raul.
Villarreal, on the other side, isn't maybe always performing as their fans would like to, but they are getting positive results and are currently finding themselves second at the table with only two points less than league leaders Elche that have five victories out of the same number of rounds.
Guests are coming from a narrow 1:0 victory over Hercules in a game they dominated a lot, but failed to convert their chances which almost cost them later in the game, but they were able to claim another important victory and stay in the race for the promotion. the team has class, the team has experience, but it's obvious that they lack of fluent display, especially at the midfield part and that their victories are with one goal difference, earned harder than expected. Striker Rossi remains out of the squad due an injury.
As said, the guests are performing very well, but they still do win. Their midfield doesn't look too creative at the moment, but their players can always produce some magical moments and get the desired result relying on the individual quality. Their victories are earned in a hard way, but their defense is working well not allowing too much space for opponents attackers. Las Palmas is playing bad, but also getting poor result. I see no way for their attacking players to make any danger in front of the Villarreal goalkeeper and guests draw no bet should be a good call here, no matter if the win is earned easy or not.
