    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.
