Fantasy Football Tips

Captain Options

Gerard Moreno – Gerard Moreno has been Villareal’s best player this season and has 17 goal contributions (15 goals and 2 assists) in 21 starts. He has consistently scored in almost every game for the past 3 months. Moreno has also created 30 chances, dispatched 34 shots on target and succeeded in 45 of his attempted dribbles.

Paco Alcacer – Lining up alongside Moreno, Paco Alcacer too has been good upfront and is one of Villareal’s trusted goal scorers. He has a goal and assist in his last 2 Europa League games as well while creating about 1 goal-scoring chance and shot on target per game.

Differential Pick

Bryan Gil – Bryan Gil has been excellent this season and is having his breakthrough season as a 20-year-old. The youngster is also highly touted and is linked with a move to Barcelona. Even though he has just 5 goal-contributions (3 goals and 2 assists) this season, he has created 36 goal-scoring chances and has succeeded in 45 of his dribbles, completing 57% of the ones he has attempted. Playing on the left-wing of a 4-4-2, Gil has 30 accurate crosses and will look to whip more in against Villareal.

EIB vs VIL Dream 11 Teams

Goalkeeper – Asenjo
Defenders – Estupinan, Foyth, Arbilla
Midfielders – Chukwueze, Parejo, Gil, Exposito
Forwards – Moreno (C), Alcacer (VC), Garcia

Likely Winner

The EIB vs VIL Today Match Prediction is a must-win game for both sides for different reasons. Villareal will hope for a much-needed win after a series of disappointing results in La Liga. Whereas, Eibar need a win after Getafe and Deportivo Alaves bagged a point in their games. Despite being on opposite ends of the table, Eibar has conceded the same number of goals as Villareal and a low scoring game can be expected. But Eibar has managed to score just 20 goals in 26 games and will still find it hard to break down a vulnerable Villareal defence.
