Having suffered a close 2-1 defeat at Camp Nou against Barcelona, Villarreal will be looking to return back to winning way when they host Real Betis in La Liga at Estadio de la Cerámica.
But it’s easier said than done as Real Betis head into this game on a relatively good form, following a run of a four-game unbeaten run.
The La Liga match will be played between Villarreal and Real Betis at Estadio de la Cerámica, in Villarreal, Spain. The ground has a capacity of 23,500.

Villarreal Team News:
There are no fresh injury concerns for Villarreal ahead of this game, and neither suspension to contend with for head coach Javier Calleja.
The usual suspects missing the game for Villarreal are Alberto Moreno, Bruno Soriano, and Ramiro Guerra. All three are struggling with health issues at the moment and are unavailable for selection.
While Mario Gaspar is still struggling with a hamstring problem and remains doubtful for the game.
No reasons to change:
Despite Villarreal losing 2-1 at Camp Nou, Javier Calleja must have left Catalonia with his head held high, for his players performed better than expected, giving Barca more than a fight. In a nutshell, the Yellow Submarine did enough to walk away from that game with at least one point.
We expect Calleja to name more or less the same playing 11 which featured against Barca from the off.
That said, Karl Toko Ekambi started from the bench and we expect the Cameroonian to be named in the playing 11 here. If the 27-year-old does start here, Javier Ontiveros is the likeliest player to make way for him in the starting 11.
Carlos Becca may feature from the bench once again.
