ANDin recent times, Villarreal has overcome many barriers that historically resisted him. The yellows have passed the semifinals, played finals and even lifted a title. But, after the great image shown last season against Chelsea, despite the defeat suffered in the final of the European Super Cup, it may be a good time for him to leave one more behind. And that is win, for the first time in its history, in a first league debut at home. To date, they have three defeats and two draws.
