Panathinaikos vs Villarreal Predictions and Top Betting Tips

Panathinaikos vs Villarreal will be an interesting game based on the performances and forms of the two teams. Here are our predictions.

Both Teams To Score Prediction: Yes

Villarreal have had a bad start this season and their biggest weakness is the defense. They concede goals in every game and often multiple times. In five La Liga games, they have a goal difference of 8:10. Panathinaikos may be the weaker side here but they are strong in attack and we expect them to score at least one goal in this game. As for Villarreal, it is hard to expect them to fail and not score even once.

Double Chance Prediction: Panathinaikos or Draw

Villarreal are an incredible home side but they are not as good when visiting. Moreover, playing at Panathinaikos is unbelievably hard because of their dedicated fanbase. Panathinaikos failed to qualify for the CL but they took out teams like Marseille on the way here. They are a dangerous team and their home form is good right now. Villarreal are a massive team but not in perfect form right now.

Correct Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw

We expect a tough match and it should be extremely competitive. We do not expect Panathinaikos to beat Villarreal but the draw seems highly possible in a game like this. When we compare the Panathinaikos vs Villarreal line ups, we think that the visitors definitely have a stronger squad but their advantage is not massive.

Panathinaikos vs Villarreal Team Previews

Panathinaikos Preview

Panathinaikos finished second in the previous season and had to fight a long queue of opponents to get to the group stage here. They took out teams like Dnipro and Marseille for the Champions League but then got taken out by Braga. We think that they got picked in a tough group in the EL and their chances are not huge right now.

Villarreal Preview

Villarreal did not have a splendid season but they still ended up in Europe again. They won this tournament a few years ago and will be motivated to get far again. Unfortunately, their form right now is disappointing and far from what it has to be. They concede too many goals and we think that teams like Panathinaikos and Rennes will score against them and be a problem.
