In their last match, they lost with Celta de Vigo by (2-1), after in the previous match they tied for (1-1) at home, in a match against Barcelona. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 2 wins, 3 draws and 10 losses in away matches, with 10 goals scored and 34 conceded; against 4 wins, 3 draws and 8 losses at their stadium, with 17 goals scored and 29 suffered.

The team allowed goals to the opponent in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition, so it has not been very strong defensively.

There is 1 period that stands out in the last 13 home matches for this competition: they have scored 7 of their 14 goals between minutes (76′-90 ‘).

The Las Palmas enters this unmotivated day, after a foreign defeat, by 2-1, in the visit to the land of Celta de Vigo. The Argentine Jonathan Calleri is the player responsible for putting the opponent’s defensive sense in mind, since his highest quality is the finalization. The greatest valence of the team of the house are the counterattacks, being that it has fast and strong players in the hand to hand. The local coach will not be able to count on Momo, Jairo Samperio, Peñalba, Dani Castellano and Pedro Bigas, for being injured. Aquilani will also be unavailable, because he is suspended.


After 12 wins, 5 draws and 10 losses, the away team is currently in the 6 th position of the league, with 41 points won. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against Eibar, by (1-0). In the last match, they lost in a home match against Girona, by (0-2). This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches he has 6 wins, 3 draws and 6 losses as a visitor; against 7 wins, 2 draws and 6 losses at their stadium. In the last 10 away matches for the championship, Villarreal has 4 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses, so they have won 15 points out of 30 possible. In their away league matches there are a few frequent results at half-time: 0-1 (5 out of 13 matches) and 0-0 (5 out of 13 matches). They have not been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 8 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 27 matches in this tournament, they have conceded the first goal 10 times and have only won 1 result.

Villarreal reach this unmotivated performance, after a home-made snub, by 0-2, at the reception to Girona. It is possible to observe that the visiting team prefers the right wing to attack, taking advantage of the depth offered by right-back Mario Gaspar. Despite being a team that likes to play in its own midfield, it also manages to leave very easily for the counterattack. It is necessary to emphasize that in the defensive moment, the Villarreal shows signs of being a very aggressive team, giving little space to the rivals. The visiting coach can not count on Nicola Sansone, Javi Fuego, Andres Fernandez and Bruno Soriano, for being injured. Mario Gaspar will also be on the outside, because he is suspended.
