The Panathinaikos team will challenge the Villarreal team in a 1e ronde Europa League in Olympiako Stadio Spyros Louis Stadium, Athens on Thursday, September 21, 2023. For streaming coverage of Panathinaikos vs Villarreal, preview and how to watch it, see in this article.
Panathinaikos will host Villarreal in the first group match of the 2023/24 Europa League on Thursday (21/9) afternoon. Both teams hope to start the competition with positive results, but who will be superior in this match?
Panathinaikos is in good form with three consecutive wins in the domestic league. They are in second place in the Greek league standings, only two points behind leaders AEK Athens. With these results, coupled with the support from their supporters, Ivan Jovanovic’s team has high confidence to face Villarreal.
Panathinaikos also has the advantage of playing at home. This is an important factor that makes them hope to get three points against Villarreal. It is worth emphasizing that, at home, Panathinaikos have lost only twice in their last 20 matches in all competitions.
Meanwhile, Villarreal did not show consistency in his performances. They have won only twice in the last 10 matches, and the main reason behind this bad situation is the instability at the back. They have conceded 14 goals in those 10 matches, including four goals from Cadiz in the last Spanish La Liga match.
Not to mention, Villarreal is also weak when playing away from home. Statistics show that, in the last nine away matches, they lost six, drew one, and won only two. Recently, the team nicknamed the “Yellow Submarine” had to suffer a 1-3 defeat at home to Cadiz.
With this disappointing performance, coupled with problems with the coach, it is very likely that Villarreal will lose in Greece. Panathinaikos will finish this match with a minimum result of a draw or even a win.
Panathinaikos’ recent performance is better than Villarreal. The team from Greece also received support from its fans. Therefore, the possibility of Panathinaikos winning is very large with a narrow score. However, Villarreal’s experience as a top team in the Spanish premier league cannot be underestimated.
