ATH Vs VIL Fantasy Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Villareal drop out of the hunt for a top 6 spot
When Emery had taken over charge of Villareal, the Spaniard had ended up working his magic at the club. Within just a couple of months of him being at the helm, Emery had transformed Villareal into a powerhouse, a side which has on its longest unbeaten spree ever.
Those charismatic displays are what make the side’s current regression all the more worse. From going for the jugular to currently sitting without a win in their last five matches, Villareal are a timid and feeble version of themselves a month back.
The side’s predicament has seen it drop out of the Europa League slots for the first time this term with the club currently stranded in 7th place.

Fantasy Team Picks
The only reason Villareal managed to register four draws and not slip to defeats was due to the tenacity of Sergio Asenjo.
Although we don’t envision either team recording a cleansheet come today, if there’s any side capable of pulling off one, its Villareal. Athletic Bilbao have been known to struggle infront of vicious defensive units to see us roll in Ruben Pena and Pau Torres from the club.
Elsewhere, Yuri Berchiche will be our selection from the other side owing to his ability to win aerial duels.
Having thumped home the four goals, Iker Munian has also pulled off the three assists to see him be a must have pick for us today.
He’s going to find company in Alex Berenguer who has the five goals with the two forming for a lethal and formidable duo. Villareal on the other hand will as ever see us rope in Daniel Parejo who has hit home the four goals and three assists.
Conjuring four assists for himself, Manuel Trigueros will be his partner with the two making for an electric attacking duo.
Villareal’s top scorer this season, Gerard Moreno has been the focal point of his side’s attack this term.
He’s been well aided by Paco Alcacer who has constructed five goals for himself. The opposition on the other hand will see us immerse in the services of striker Inaki Williams, a player whose flair has seen him emerge as the club’s top scorer with five goals and four assists.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Moreno’s 13 goals make him our captain while Parejo is the vice-captain.
Asenjo, Torres, Berchiche, Pena, Parejo, Berenguer, Munian, Trigueros, Moreno, Paco, Williams
