Villareal welcomes Plzen in the second round of EL , group E. Villareal lost the first match away to Rapid 2:1 but was resting a lot of regulars. They payed the price for underestimating the opponent even they dominated in first half. Plzen won against Dinamo Minsk @ home and continued the good run that now spans to 8 wins in a row. It all started with the arrival of the new coach who improved the game greatly. Plzen won the last 3 EL matche without conceding a goal but that will be very hard today. Villareal is motivated to take the 3 points and wil field the best possible squad though some regulars are injured. Villareal leads the Primera and have just 1 loss in the last 15 matches played all together. Their 1:0 win over Atletico shows just how good they are at the moment and no team will count on 3 points up front on this ground. Villareal plays attacking football which is especially shown in the Europa League. Even 18 of their last 20 EL matches finished over 2,5 goals scored and I expect some today. Plzen is well known for nice passing football and might get some chances today. Villareal does concede in Europe and Plzen is not a team to underestimate. They won @ Shakhtar last year and Napoli the year before.
Villlareal will miss:" Adrian, Bakumbu, Iniguez, Bonera, Asenjo, Suarez, Musacchio."
Plzen will miss:" Reznik, Pilar, Vanek, Holenka, while Kolar and Baranek are questionable."
I expect at least 3 goals today.
