Villarreal vs Maccabi Haifa predictions and top betting tips

Spanish side Villarreal welcomes Maccabi Haifa to the Estadio de la Ceramica for a rearranged Europa League match after the first attempt to play was postponed in October. Villarreal enters this match with three wins in their previous four matches while Haifa has won two of their previous four, losing the other two.

Match result prediction: Villarreal to Win

For our first prediction, we at Football Ground Guide predict that Villarreal will earn all three points, putting Villarreal joint top of Group F alongside Stade Rennais. Villarreal has won three of their four group-stage matches thus far. You have to go back to the 2017/18 Europa League campaign to find the last time Villarreal lost a group stage match which came in the form of a 1-0 defeat to Maccabi Tel-Aviv in the final match of the group stages. With Maccabi Haifa currently without a win in their previous four European group-stage matches, we can not see anything but a Villarreal victory.

Total goals prediction: Under 2.5 Goals

For our second prediction, we at Football Ground Guide predict that the total number of goals in this encounter will be 2.5 or less. Maccabi Haifa has scored just one goal in their four group stage matches while Villarreal has scored and conceded a total of eleven times, averaging out as just under three goals per match but with there not being much on the line for the Spanish side, we would be amazed if they played their usual attacking open football.

Correct score prediction: 2-0 to Villarreal

Villarreal has scored an average of two goals per home match in the Europa League this season while Maccabi Haifa has conceded three times in their only away group-stage match. Villarreal has been without a clean sheet in their previous seven matches but we should see a clean sheet for Villarreal as their very good defence comes up against a misfiring Maccabi Haifa side.
