Naija star Samuel Chukwueze and his Villarreal teammates will be welcoming Valencia to El Madrigal, as manager Unai Emery will be facing his former side for the first time with the Yellow Submarine.
In the last 34 matches between these two teams, Villarreal have won 13 matches, while Valencia have won 14 games, with the remaining 7 matches ending in a draw. This tie has produced just one away win in the last 5 meetings. The home team always win, scoring 2 goals.
Villarreal will be without Gerard Moreno, Sofian Chakla, Alberto Moreno, and Ramiro Guerra due to injury, while Francis Coquelin is a major doubt. Valencia, on the other hand, will miss the services of Gabriel Paulista and Eliaquim Mangala due to injury.
Samuel Chukwueze is expected to feature for Villarreal, as Unai Emery will be facing his former Valencia, who have a very slim squad due to the coronavirus pandemic. The Yellow Submarine are expected to edge this close encounter.
You can catch the game live on DSTV channel 204, SuperSport La Liga on Sunday October 18 2020, by 3:00pm Naija time.
