Europa League / Villarreal Vs Maccabi Tel Aviv 07.12 [Copy Link]

Match: UEFA Europa League / Villarreal Vs Maccabi Tel Aviv

Villarreal: Already sure of the first spot (Recent Form: LWLWDW)
Villarreal are on 1st place in group A of Europa League with 11 points. They have currently 3 points of advantage over 2nd Slavia Prague and due to better h2h ‘The Yellow Submarine’ are already sure of topping this group. Villarreal take on Maccabi Tel Aviv on Thursday at Estadio de la Ceramica. “This is the last game, we’ve got the job done but we want to win at home, in front of our supporters. We are going to make many changes because there are a few footballers who need rest. It’s a good moment to give rest to the most exploited players. Of course, we want to remain competitive. We trust players from our youth team and we’ve seen what they’re capable of. I am sure we will compete well with them and get a victory,” said coach Calleja. Gaspar, Álvaro González, Bonera, Víctor Ruiz, Jaume Costa, Rodrigo, Bakambu weren’t called-up.

Maccabi Tel Aviv: Disappointing campaign in Europe (Recent Form: DWDLWL)
Maccabi sit bottom in the group with 1 point. They will finish on 4th position, regardless of the outcome of this match. It’s worth noticing that they haven’t scored a single goal yet in group phase of Europa League. In general, team is in average shape with 2 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss in last 5 matches across all competitions. Maccabi are currently on 4th place in Israeli league, so there’s room for improvement. Jose Rodriguez is ineligible to play, but apart from him visitors should have full team available.

All in all, I think that visitors are favourites of this clash. Villarreal have a prestigious game against Barcelona on Sunday, so the whole team could be changed on Thursday. In my opinion Maccabi may be able to take advantage of whole situation.
