The Yellows could do with finishing the year with a win

Villarreal are back in La Liga action on Wednesday night in their final game before the festive break, and you can join the conversation right here.

The Yellow Submarine have put together a disastrous start to the season, and Marcelino can be forgiven for counting down the days until the January transfer window.

But before then, the Yellows have a relegation six-pointer of sorts, taking on Celta Vigo at home on Wednesday evening. The Asturian club are currently 18th in the table, just three points behind Villarreal in 15th.

A defeat here would be a terrible way to end the year, bringing up a real concern of relegation, while a win could do quite the opposite. We’re hoping for the latter!

The Yellows have a number of injury concerns here, with Gerard Moreno picking up an ankle issue over the weekend, while Alex Baena also picked up a fresh issue. Those players add to an already lengthy injury list that features Alberto Moreno, Mateo Gabbia, Juan Foyth and others.

As ever, we invite you to join the conversation before, during and after the game in the comments section below.
