Villarreal to Win

The Yellow Submarine had a fantastic last season in which they've won the Europa League, but Granada also did well in the same competition since they reached the semi-finals. Still, Villarreal is clearly the better team and they are the favourites in this match, especially since Villarreal didn't lose in the last five duels with Granada, while they won three of those matches. So, our prediction is for Villarreal to win this game.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

While both teams have scored in just two of the previous five head-to-head meetings between Villarreal and Granada, we expect that to happen in this match. The reason lies in the fact that both teams have scored in 66% of all Villarreal matches in La Liga last season, while the same thing happened in 61% of Granada games in the league.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

Three of the previous five h2h duels between these teams have gone over 2.5 total goals. In addition to this, Villarreal and Granada averaged 3.6 goals per game in those matches, so we expect to see at least three goals in this game. To top this all off, Villarreal averaged 2.74 goals per game last season, while Granada averaged 2.95 goals per game in La Liga last year.

Villarreal vs Granada preview: A very interesting duel in the first round

The historic last season for Villarreal ended with their first-ever European trophy with a win over Manchester United in the Europa League final. Meanwhile, the team didn't do as well in La Liga since they ended the season in the 7th place. Still, thanks to their win in Europa League, the Yellow Submarine will play in the Champions League this season. Villarreal already had an early start to the season since they played Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup, but they ultimately lost that game on penalties. The team added a few solid players, especially  Juan Foyth and Boulaye Dia.

Just like their first-round rival, Granada also had a great run in the Europa League since they've reached the semi-finals of the competition in their first-ever European appearance. However, that took its toll on Granada and they failed to reach a spot that leads to European competitions once again, finishing La Liga in the 9th place. The team added Bacca, Monchu, and Abram on free transfers, while they let go of Roberto Soldado and Rui Silva.
