The Spanish Primera Division match in Round 22 with the most lopsided collateral form figures features the third hottest favourite, Villarreal, at home to Granada on Sunday.
Usually it is either Barcelona or Real Madrid that leads the way on one’s Spanish Primera Division collateral form data but Villarreal’s 15-2-2 advantage over Granada, including a 3-1 victory in September’s reverse fixture, means that the Yellow Submarine rise to the top for this weekend’s games.
Villarreal has earned a reputation in recent Spanish Primera Division seasons for being a team that struggles whenever it encounters the league’s big guns but the Yellow Submarine’s results this term include 1-0 home wins over Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid so they have accrued six points from their three matches against sides above them on the ladder. And, according to one’s Spanish Primera Division collateral form analysis, Villarreal’s edge over Granada is greatest when one assesses games versus teams in the top nine – the Yellow Submarine hold a 6-2-0 lead over the Nasrids on that score.
Marathonbet is offering odds of 47/1001.47-2130.47-2.130.47 about Villarreal getting back to winning ways at home to a Granada side that has lost its last four away matches across all competitions by three goals (once) and four goals (three times) and has a much tougher schedule to come in the second half of the Spanish Primera Division season – the Nasrids have visited just three of the top nine and those games produced zero points.
Sevilla has lost only one of its 15 matches across the many tournaments in which it is involved and one fancies that it will be too strong for Spanish Primera Division cellar dweller Levante when the teams run into each other on Sunday.
Not even the 61st-minute dismissal of Vitolo could prevent Sevilla earning a point from its Spanish Primera Division road trip to Atletico Madrid last weekend and its recent results in other competitions include a 6-0 aggregate Spanish Copa del Rey win over its hated neighbour, Betis. Levante has battled to narrow Spanish Primera Division home victories over fellow strugglers Las Palmas and Vallecano since the turn of the year but it is anchored to the bottom of the ladder for good reason, including three away defeats on the bounce. According to one’s Spanish Primera Division collateral form analysis, Sevilla enjoys a 13-1-5 advantage over Levante, including a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture. William Hill are quoting odds of 2/51.40-2500.40-2.500.40 about Sevilla improving its Spanish Primera Division home record to 10-0-2 and keeping Levante in 20th position.
One may regret nominating Valencia as one’s third Spanish Primera Division wager but the Bats have the collateral form figures to be shorter odds than 7/101.70-1430.70-1.430.70 with BetVictor, to get the better of Gijon on Saturday. Valencia, which is yet to post a Spanish Primera Division victory under Gary Neville, holds a 13-1-4 edge over Gijon, including a 1-0 win in the reverse fixture thanks to Paco Alcacer’s late goal. Zero in on the Spanish Primera Division top eight and Valencia’s collateral form lead over Gijon stands at 6-1-0 and those numbers are simply too good to ignore in spite of the Bats failing to make life easy for Neville since he arrived in December.
Finally, here are one’s Spanish Primera Division collateral form analysis results for every one of Round 22’s 10 games. The asterisk signifies the direct head-to-head winner.
