Will Villarreal’s excellent form continue?
Last weekend, el Submarino Amarillo beat Real Madrid 2-1 in, what was, a tale of two very dodgy penalties.
Yeremy broke the deadlock, before both sides converted very soft spot-kicks; Gerard Moreno rolling home the home side’s winner.
So, that’s now three successive league victories for Quique Setién’s side, who also beat Valencia on New Year’s Eve in their first game back at the recently re-opened Estadio de la Cerámica.
This leaves Villarreal sixth, and they will climb into the top four with a Friday night victory in Vigo.
As for Celta de Vigo, they kick off just two places and one points clear of the relegation zone.
A week ago, O Celtiña were victorious for the first time since 2 October, with Iago Aspas, who else, the only scorer as they beat rock bottom Elche.
Before this, Carlos Carvalhal had failed to win any of his four La Liga games in charge, with this easing the pressure on him.
So, can Celta make home advantage count at Balaídos, or will Villarreal leave Galicia with all three points?
