VIL vs GRD Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:

Villarreal struggled so much last season, that they ended up sacking two managers during the 2018-19 season. Javier Calleja is now at the helm and will be looking to guide the team to a level where is challenges for the European places.

For Granada, like any team earning the promotion, the target must be to pass the first season hurdle.


Team News:

Villarreal:

  • Defensive midfielder Bruno Soriano, along with central midfielder Ramiro Guerra and left-back Alberto Moreno, all miss out on the match due to injuries.
  • Much of Villarreal’s problems last season surfaced from a leaky defense and the club tried to shore up the things at the back with some signings.
  • One of them is Raul Albiol, and the 33-year-old is expected to start the match in the heart of the defense.

Granada:

  • Alex Martinez and Neider Lozano are listed as out by Granada ahead of this game.
  • In addition, Bernardo Cruz and Jose Antonio Martinez are carrying knocks and will be monitored before the game.

VIL vs GRD Dream11 Grand League Picks for Captains & Vice-Captains:

Roberto Soldado: Back in Spain after a little bit of transformation with Fenerbache in the Turkish Super Lig. The 34-year-old is a threat in front of the goal.

Last season:

  • Games: 21
  • Goals: 06
  • Assists: 04

Gerard Moreno: The 27-year-old was Villarreal’s 2nd highest goal scorer last season. He has had a good pre-season as well which shows that he is ready for the new season.

Last season:

  • Games: 46
  • Goals: 12
  • Assists: 02

Santi Cazorla: The 34-year-old had a phenomenal last season, even earning a recall to the national set-up with Spain. Expect the former Arsenal star to pull the strings here.

Last season:

  • Games: 45
  • Goals: 06
  • Assists: 11

Karl Toko Ekambi: The Cameroon international can play in a variety of roles. Not only he has been deployed as a forward in a false-9 situation, but the 26-year-old has played both on the left-wing and as a left-back as well.

He is a vital cog in Viallreal’s wheel.

Last season:

  • Games: 41
  • Goals: 13
  • Assists: 05

VIL vs GRD Dream11 Grand League Scenarios:

  • Villarreal should have a comfortable outing against the newly promoted Granda.
  • That said the visitors could still produce a shock.
  • Their forward line has a little bit of flair, led by the former Valencia star Roberto Soldado.
  • But from the midfield, the likes of Iborra, Ekambi and Cazorla are undroppable.
  • Stock your midfield with the home team’s player, with Fede Vico a good option from Granada.
