Villarreal suffered a shock defeat in Denmark a week ago when Cristián Zapata’s error on his debut allowed Hans Henrik Andreasen to score the only goal of the game.
However, the Yellow Submarine have a fine European record of late, particularly at El Madrigal, and they should recover to advance to the Champions League group stages this evening.
With the Spanish side priced at 1/5 to win the match and 19/50 to win the tie, a bet on the goals market could prove better value.
Villarreal were clinical at home in their run to the Europa League semi-finals last season, scoring 23 goals in eight games (an average of 2.87). With the hosts needing to overcome that first-leg deficit, over 3.5 goals at 13/10 looks a good prospect.
Betting on Juan Carlos Garrido’s men to score in both halves at 3/4 also offers a better price for those who fancy the side who finished fourth in La Liga last term to cruise through.
Odense sprung a huge surprise with their amazing 4-3 win away to Panathinaikos in the previous round and will see away goals as the best route to progression to the group stages proper.
The Danes are 11/1 to win again on the road but a punt on them simply to score inside 90 minutes looks a better bet at 11/10, with the slightly longer 33/20 to score exactly once as an alternative.
Villarreal won all eight games on home soil in Europe last season and 15/1 looks a good price for them to emerge 4-1 victors and progress through to the Champions League proper. A free £25 bet on that outcome for new customers could land a whopping £400.
Football betting fans looking for first goalscorer options should look no further than former Manchester United striker Giuseppe Rossi.
The Italian fired 11 goals in the Europa League last term and is available at 7/10 to break the deadlock tonight, with Nilmar at evens and Borja Valero, who was their stand-out performer in the first leg, priced at 2/1.
