VIL vs GRD Dream11 : Villarreal and Granada begin their 2019-20 league campaign today with the two sides setting out looking to improve on previous season’s sojourn
The 2019-29 edition of La Liga is fully upon us now with Saturday brining our way a hoard of matches. While the top of the league table clashes will be the most anticipated ones, especially after Barcelona fell to a 1-0 defeat yesterday and Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid both making plenty of signings, today’s encounter holds massive ramifications as well.
For Granada who were prompted to the La Liga for this campaign, today’s encounter is not just a welcome into life in La Liga but a chance to walk away with what could prove to be an incredibly important three points at the end of the season. Squaring off against a Villarreal outfit who are known for their defensive flailing, Granada know they can go out and play their full fledged brand of attacking goal and come away with a win.
Elsewhere for Villarreal, the new season brings with it renewed aspirations of breaching the top 10. Finishing in 14th in the previous campaign, the side massively underwhelmed, being punished for failing to show the necessary composure needed to triumph in crucial junctures. Up against an outfit who will be tentative, especially in the opening exchanges of the encounter, Villarreal know they can go onto dominate this and pull off a hefty win.

VIL vs GRD Dream 11 Picks
Goal-Keeper for VIL vs GRD Dream11
With Villarreal set to come hot out of the blocks, especially in the opening minutes as they look to quench their thirst for goals, Granada’s Rui Silva is going to be absolutely hammered today. He’s going to come across a complete carnage, one his side will need him to parry away astutely, seeing him bring the excellent proposition of save points into our Dream 11 side.
Defenders for VIL vs GRD Dream11
New signing, fullback Ruben Pena is our first pick from Villarreal over here. A cleansheet could be wiped out for either side in this encounter, seeing us going ahead with players who are known to make their way forward and incorporate their services in the attacking side of the pitch.
This narrative sees us also stick it out with centreback Pau Torres given his involvement in this side’s freekicks and corners while from the new entrants we have opted for the lone pick of Victor Diaz.
Midfielders for VIL vs GRD Dream11
There was only one name who crop up to their minds when we entered this segment of our side. Villarreal’s CAM Santi Cazorla was the most influential player the side last season, the fulcrum of all his side’s attacks. His four goals and 10 assists are a testament to how instrumental a role the player holds in his side and there were no doubts when picking him up.
With three goals and the one assist in the bygone campaign we also have Vicent Iborra come into our side along with Manuel Trigueros and Moi Gomez with us envisioning the side to pile on the goals today. Elsewhere from the opposition we have incurred in the services of Fede Vico. He scored and assisted four teams each and if the side are to make a contest of this encounter, he’ll need to traverse his way with ease past Villarreal’s defenders.
Strikers for VIL vs GRD Dream11
The one striker come in from either side from us with Gerard Moreno representing us from Villarreal while Darwin Machis is our pick from Granada. The two are akin to each other, players who can keep the ball with them nicely and involve their surrounding compatriots in attacks along with contributing with goals themselves as well.
