Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Villarreal will be looking to cement top position in the standings when they take on Maccabi Tel Aviv at Bloomfield Stadium on Thursday. The Yellow Submarine aim to keep their 100% record intact, and we are positive that they will stick to their attacking style of play. Even though boss Unai Emery is unlikely to field the best possible side in the Group I derby, we are positive that the Spaniards will grab something from the match.
Both Paco Alcacer and Alberto Moreno are likely to miss the game with injury for the visitors, while Coquelin and Foyth, who missed the third group game, return to contention. The Israeli outfit are eager to get their revenge on Villarreal for a 4-0 loss in Spain, and seeing that the visitors would be happy with one point from the match, share of spoils is on the cards. Uros Nikolic remains in the recovery room for the hosts.
