Prediction: Villarreal vs Leeds United – Football Predictions

Check out our analysis, team news, line-ups and see our prediction for this match.

Before the European Supercup clash with Chelsea next week, Villarreal will take over Leeds United in the last preparation game for both sides.

Unai Emerys side triumphed in the Europa League final in May but pre-season concerns were a cause for concern while the Yorkshire side suffered several disappointing defeats in preparation for the upcoming Premier League season.


Prediction for this match

In their first full season under Unai Emery, Villarreal had a pretty strong season last year, moving in the upper end of the La Liga and getting deep into the Europa League.

While Real Betis finished sixth on the final day of the season, the Yellow Submarine more than made up for it with an eye-catching continental run, starting with a comfortable 4-0 aggregate win over Dynamo Kiev to the quarter finals.

They reached the bottom four with a 3-1 win over Dinamo Zagreb and Emery’s men would advance again with a 2-1 aggregate win over his old side Arsenal.

Manchester United waited for the final and the tie then went to penalties Edinson Cavani followed the Red Devils level Gerard Moreno‘s opener.

Any outfield player would take his or her penalty, and Villarreal’s goalkeeper Geronimo Rulli didn’t make a mistake with his spot kick before David De Gea failed to see Villarreal triumph and Emery took his fourth Europa League title.

With the European Super Cup coming up against Champions League winners Chelsea, the Yellow Submarine hope to end their pre-season with a win after a string of defeats, with Emery’s men falling against Valencia, Marseille and Leicester City.

Their opponents will also try to end the pre-season on a positive note after a somewhat disappointing run.

The Whites started their preparations for the coming season with a 3-2 win over local non-league club Guiseley before ending in a 1-1 draw against Blackburn Rovers.

This was followed by a disappointing 2-1 away defeat by third division club Fleetwood before losing 3-2 to Real Betis.

Last time out Marcelo Bielsa‘s team lost again in the friendly when they were defeated 4-0 by Dutch champions Ajax Davy Klaassen, Perr Schuurs, Ryan Gravenberch and Danilo all come on the scoresheet.

They are now heading into the final friendly with the hope of building some confidence for the upcoming Premier League season, their second return to the top division after the Argentine coach led them to promotion in the 2019-20 season.

The Yorkshire team impressed back in their first season and finished ninth with 59 points, the highest of all newcomers since Ipswich Town, which collected 66 pints in the 2000/01 season.

Bielsa will now take his team into the second season with the hope of a further placement in the first half and have the chance to end the pre-season on a positive note before the opening game against Manchester United next week.

Emery has added to its ranks in the summer transfer window and is bringing in Aissa Mandi, Manu Morlanes and Boulaye Dia in addition to the permanent obligation of the defense attorney Juan Foyth from Tottenham Hotspur.

With a decisive Supercup duel next week, Villarreal’s strongest team should at least play a role in Saturday’s game to shake off all cobwebs while maintaining their energy.

You will be without a center-back Pau Torreswho is out and about with the Spanish Olympic Football Team in Tokyo.

While Leeds are not overly active in the summer transfer window, the winger is under permanent imprisonment Jack Harrison will surely delight fans of the whites.

Bielsa, however, has expanded its defensive ranks by bringing in the left-back Junior Firpo from Barcelona after leaving Ezgjan Alioski upon expiry of his contract.

Keeping an exciting winger Raphinha could certainly be seen as a boost in its own right after the Brazilian scored six goals and nine assists from 30 Premier League games in his first season in Yorkshire.

He and Harrison were supposed to support the attacking duo of Rodrigo and Patrick Bamford, who scored 17 Premier League goals and eight assists last season.

Villarreal possible starting line-up:
Rulli; Gaspar, Albiol, Foyth, Estupinan; Pino, Parejo, Capoue, Dia; Alcacer, Moreno

Leeds United possible starting line-up:
Meslier; Ayling, Cooper, Koch, Firpo; Phillips, Dallas; Raphinha, Rodrigo, Harrison; Bamford

Probability: Villarreal 2-1 Leeds United

While their intensity may not be the highest with an eye on next week’s game, Villarreal has more reason to be in the races for Saturday’s game and we see them come just over the finish line.

The two teams are on a relatively equal field, but the Yellow Submarine will be very focused on preparing for Chelsea and Saturday offers a good chance to get in shape.
