Villarreal will try to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Barcelona and Cadiz when they take on Almeria in the La Liga round 5.
The Yellow Submarine made a slow start to the season, but it seems as if their performances are much better than the results.
Alfonso Pedraza is banned for Sunday’s clash, with Jose Luis Morales likely to step up. Both Alberto Moreno and Francis Coquelin are out of contention with injuries, but the appointment of Jose Pacheta as the team’s new boss should give players a confidence boost.
The Andalusians, on the other hand, have collected only one point in total from possible 12 and given their shaky defence, we do not believe that Villarreal will have a better chance than this to return to winning ways in the Spanish elite division.
Edgar Gonzalez returns from suspension, while fellow midfielder Martin Svidersky has yet to overcome an ACL injury. In their last meeting at Estadio de la Ceramica Villarreal defeated Almeria 2-1.
