The home / away condition deserves special attention, since although this is a game between 9th and 20th of the overall classification, in fact this is a match between the 10th classified in home games and the 14th as a visitor.

Villarreal comes motivated for this match after an away win by 1-2 against Orihuela in a match for the Copa del Rey: Gerard Moreno scored two goals in the game, allowing his team to move forward in the competition. It is possible that we observe the home team preferring the left side to attack, taking advantage of the depth offered by the left side defender Xavi Quintillà. Despite being a team that likes to play in their midfield, they can also easily go out on the counterattack. It is worth noting that in the defensive moment, Villarreal shows signs of being a very aggressive team, giving little space to the opponent. The coach will not be able to count on Bruno for being delivered to the medical department.
