Daily Tip – Value in Villarreal at Lyon


Villarreal head to Lyon in the Europa League this evening and the Spanish side look good value to claim a first leg advantage.

Lyon have hit a rough patch of form with three defeats in their last four games and the French side may opt to rotate for their European commitments.

Les Gones are pushing for a top three finish and a Champions League spot in Ligue 1 but they find themselves fourth and now four points adrift of Marseille.

Villarreal are not technically out of Champions League contention in La Liga themselves but in truth catching Real Madrid above them looks unlikely, so they should send out their strongest available XI this evening.

The Spanish outfit have managed five wins in their last eight on their travels, including a success over Real, and are a team that is well set up to hit the opposition on the break.

Villarreal are a massive price at 3/1 to claim the victory and I don’t see the need to complicate matters further in this one.

Elsewhere, Dynamo Kiev head to AEK Athens and an away win appeals in this one as well at 9/4 and Partizan Belgrade stand out at 8/5 to overcome Viktoria Plzen.
