Villarreal will be looking for a derby win to start climbing up the table

The Submarine are back, and Marcelino’s side have now gone eight games in a row without defeat in LALIGA: Against Real Betis last matchday, the Yellows managed to get a valuable victory at the Benito Villamarín (2-3), and this Sunday, from 16.15 at the Estadio de la Cerámica, Villarreal CF will face Valencia CF in the match on Matchday 29 of the 2023/24 LALIGA EASPORTS season.

Villarreal CF come into the game in a great momentum, and in the derby, the Submarine will be looking for the win to continue with this positive dynamic and look up in the table. Marcelino’s men managed to win at home against Granada CF (5-1) and did the same last Thursday against Marseille (3-1) in continental competition. Now, the derby is presented as an opportunity to string together a third consecutive victory at La Cerámica.

Thhe team from Valencia also come into the game in great form, coming off the back of a valuable draw against Real Madrid at Mestalla (2-2) and a win against Getafe last time out (1-0). Moreover, with a game in hand, Valencia CF currently sit eighth in the standings on 40 points, just two points off the European places.

Favourable history for Villarrael at La Cerámica

The ‘Derbi de la Comunitat’ between Villarreal and Valencia is always synonymous with excitement and good football, but the record favours the Submarine at La Cerámica.
