Villarreal vs. Dynamo Kiev Match Analysis and Prediction

Villarreal prepares to bid into the Europa League quarter-finals with a 2-0 lead over their opponents Dynamo Kyiv. The match schedules for Thursday at the Estadio de la Ceramica, with a kickoff at 11 pm.

Pau Torres opened the scoring account last time to give them a goal advantage, followed by Raul Albio, who marked his 100th European appearance. The Spanish side holds a two-goal advantage heading into the clash.

Dynamo held a ten-match unbeaten streak before last week’s first leg, but they struggled to put up a fight against Villarreal at the NSK Olimpiyskiy. The Ukrainian Premier League leaders failed to register a single shot on target and will have to work hard to overturn a two-goal deficit.

Coming to the Estadio de la Ceramica will remain a massive task for the away side, given Villarreal have won all their four Europa League matches at their home front. It marks the Yellow submarines longest run in the competition since an eight-game streak from October 2015 to September 2016, with a clean sheet in those two games.

Their win in the first leg seemed to revive their La Liga form with a 3-1 win against Eibar. The win moves the side two points of the top six. However, Kyiv comes into the clash on the back of a 2-0 win against Zorya Luhansk.

Villarreal Team News

Torres missed out on their last victory against Eibar due to injury concerns and remained a significant injury doubt ahead of this clash. Torres’ absence might force a reshuffle at the back with Jaume Costa, a major contender to fill in the right-back position, while Juan Foyth is slotting into midfield.

The side faces an injury crisis with up to six players unavailable for selection. Tudor Baluta, Benjamin Verbic, Denys Harmash, Mykyta Burda, Volodymyr Kostevych and Ruslan Neshcheret unavailable for selection.
