Greetings, groguets, and welcome to Villarreal’s 20th season in the Primera! It’s safe to say there is a mood of optimism among Villarreal supporters as we open up league play, tempered with caution after last year’s tough grind. Am I right?
How to watch: In the USA, the match is available on BeINSport in Spanish. FuboTV is the best bet for that, but depending on where you are, you may be able to find it if you are a Direct TV subscriber. Their website is somewhat opaque!
Teams: Villareal go with Andrés; Rubén Peña, Albiol, Pau Torres, Quintillà; Zambo Anguissa, Cazorla (c), Samu, Iborra, Moi Gómez; Gerard. Looks like a 4-2-3-1.
bench: Asenjo, Mario, Funes Mori, Bacca, Trigueros, Morlanes, Toko Ekambi.
Granada: Rui Silva; Quini, Domingo Duarte, German, Victor Diaz; Montoro, Eteki; Vadillo, Vico, Puertas; Soldado.
