Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Villarreal will be looking to cement top position in Group I when they welcome Qarabag at their Estadio de la Ceramica on Thursday evening. The Yellow Submarine are undefeated in the Europa League group stages, but they surely want to finish the process in style. The likes of Bacca, Gomez, and Alberto Moreno remain in the recovery room, but key attacker Paco Alcacer is fit to face Qarabag.
The Azeri, on the other hand, have collected only one point in total in the Europa League group stages this term, and it is no wonder bookies seem them as underdogs in Thursday’s clash. Regardless of which Villarreal players will be deployed in the starting XI, home win should be considered as the Yellow Submarine have turned their Estadio de la Ceramica into a real fortress. When the two teams met in Israel earlier in the process Villarreal outplayed Qarabag 3-1.
