Match preview

After claiming a vital victory on Monday night, can Villarreal start to build some momentum?

On Monday, Quique Setién’s side came from a goal down to beat Getafe 2-1 at Estadio de la Cerámica.

Samu Chukwueze equalised on the cusp of half time, before putting it on a plate for José Luis Morales to tap home the winner.

Before this, el Submarino Amarillo had lost four successive La Liga matches for the first time in 24 years, putting Setién on the brink of losing his job.

Now though, Villarreal are back in seventh spot, seeking to remain in the European positions.

Speaking of UEFA competition, the Yellow Submarine’s Europa Conference League campaign resumes on Thursday, facing Anderlecht in Brussels in the first leg of their last 16 clash.

Almería have been a bit Jekyll and Hyde recently; they were horrendously bad a fortnight ago, but were then terrific last Sunday.

12 days ago, Rubi’s team were demolished 6-2 by Girona, finding themselves 4-0 down by half time at Montilivi.

But then, six days later, El Bilal Touré was the only scorer as los Rojiblancos enjoyed a famous victory over run-away league-leaders Barcelona.

These three points lifted Almería out of the relegation zone, with all seven of their wins this season coming at home.

So, Villarreal will do very well to leave Estadio de los Juegos Mediterráneos with a positive result.
