FC Zurich vs Villarreal – Europa League Match Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips
Group L of this year’s Europa League is much more balanced than we initially thought.
On paper, Villarreal and Steaua Bucharest were favorites at the start of the group, but things aren’t looking so clear right now.
All teams have chances to qualify, and the game between Zurich and Villarreal will answer lots of questions regarding who will advance from the group.

First of all, let’s discuss the Swiss side. Since they are currently playing in the Swiss second division, their domestic form isn’t very relevant, because the quality of their adversaries isn’t very good.
On the other hand, their games so far were very good – a narrow 1-2 loss against Villarreal, a home win against Osmanlispor and two draws against the Romanian champions.
If they manage to avoid defeat at home against Villareal, they will depend on their last game to qualify from the group – a quite incredible feat for a team not playing in a nation’s top division.
Meanwhile, Villarreal is a team which holds lots of records this season – like having the best defense in La Liga. Their European games weren’t just as impressive, and with 5 points from 3 games, just like Zurich.
They need at least 4 points from their last 2 games in order to be sure of qualification, and anything less would be a big disappointment for their supporters.
FC Zurich vs Villarreal Betting Tips
We think that Villarreal won’t lose this game, to put it simply. X2 is the easiest bet out there, while under 2,5 goals is another great idea. We think that 0-1, 1-1 or 0-2 are the most probable scorelines – since Zurich will most probably not score.
Zurich under 0,5 goals is another great idea which also brings high odds since the Swiss team isn’t used to coming up against such great defenders. In short, Villareal is favorites for a short, simple victory.
