On Wednesday, May 03, 2023, fans will witness a fierce battle between two giant soccer teams, Valencia and Villarreal in week 33 of the 2022/2023 La Liga. The Valencia vs Villarreal match can be watched via live streaming on ESPN+ at 15:00 ET.
On Wednesday, 3 May 2023, the Estadio de Mestalla will witness a fierce battle between Valencia and Villarreal in the continuation of the La Liga competition. This match is not just a local derby, but also has a big impact on the two teams who have different goals in the standings.
Valencia, who are in 17th place with 33 points, desperately need a win to stay away from the threat of relegation. They are just two points clear of the red zone with six matches remaining. However, they had to come back from a 2-1 loss to another relegation contender, Cádiz, in their last outing.
Meanwhile, Villarreal, who are in fifth place with 53 points, are hoping to strengthen their position in the Europa League zone and chase a place in the Champions League. They are five points behind Real Sociedad in fourth but still have a chance if Imanol Alguacil’s side slip up against Real Madrid.
This match will also be a proving ground for the players of both teams, especially the attackers. Edinson Cavani, who only joined Valencia in January, is yet to score a single goal in 2023. He must quickly show his quality if he does not want to be abandoned by the likes of Justin Kluivert and Samuel Lino, who have scored five and four goals respectively.
In the Villarreal camp, the attacking trio of José Luis Morales, Nicolas Jackson and Samuel Chukwueze became the mainstay of the team with seven, six and six goals. They will look to continue their slick performance in their previous match, when they beat Celta de Vigo 3-1.
In the previous meeting last December, Villarreal managed to win 2-1 over Valencia at home. The winning goals for the visitors were scored by Chukwueze and Juan Foyth, while Valencia’s goal was scored by Cavani. However, at home to Valencia, Villarreal are winless in their last five matches.
Can Valencia maintain their slick home record in recent weeks? Can Villarreal take advantage of their momentum to win an important victory? Can Cavani recover from his goal drought? Can Chukwueze be a nightmare for Valencia’s defense again?
