Unbeaten Villareal should be too hot for Las Palmas to handle on Sunday evening.
Villarreal v Las Palmas - Sunday 17:30, Sky Sports 5
Villarreal remain unbeaten this season and thumped Celta Vigo 5-0 at home last time out to remain in 5th as they’ve conceded just four goals in their eight games so far. Las Palmas are up in 7th, but they’ve drawn their last three and haven’t won on the road since they beat Valencia on the opening day of the season.
Villarreal have won their last three at home and their record at El Madrigal is W15-D5-L3 since the start of last season, with clean sheets in 11 of their last 16 there. When hosting sides between 5th and 10th they’re W5-D3-L1 in that period as they led at the break in each of those victories and kept a clean sheet in five of the last six of these.
Las Palmas have already been beaten at Sevilla and Real Sociedad this term and they’ve lost 14 of their 23 road games since the start of last season. They’ve trailed 3-0 and 2-0 at the break in their last two on the road and since Villarreal have been ahead at half time in their last three at home, we’re backing Villarreal/Villarreal HT/FT at 2.75, with the win to nil also worth backing at 2.9.
