Villarreal vs Levante pre-match info & previous line-ups:
Unai Emery’s side have had a mixed summer so far, losing 3-2 to Valencia before drawing 2-2 with French giants Lyon last time out. However, pre-season is more about fitness and performances rather than results and heading into the new season as Europa League champions, Villarreal will certainly be hoping to contend in the upper echelons of the La Liga table.
A game against local rivals Levante should be a good barometer of their progress this summer. Granotes have won both their games so far this summer, beating Atromitos Athens 2-1 following an impressive 3-1 victory over Rennes. With friendlies against Valencia, Southampton, Alaves and Elche to come after this one, Villarreal surely represent Levante’s biggest pre-season test.
- Villarreal (vs Lyon): Asenjo; Pena, Albiol, Mandi, Pedraza; Pino, Coquelin, Capoue, Gomez; Dia, Iosifov.
- Levante (vs Atromitos Athens): Cardenas; Son, Vezo, Rober, Clerc; De Frutos, Radoja, Melero, Bardhi; Roger, Gomez.
Player to watch: Boulaye Dia (Villarreal)
Having only arrived from Reims on a five-year deal just over two weeks ago, Boulaye Dia has made a quick impression on Villarreal, scoring the second goal in their 2-2 draw with Lyon last time out.
The Senegalese forward is blessed with both blistering pace and silky skills in equal measure, and his keen eye for goal should help close the gap between Villarreal and last season’s top four in La Liga, which stood at a massive 19 points by the end of the campaign.
Gerard Moreno (23) was the only Villarreal player to score more than six La Liga goals last season, so Dia finding the net again here will give Emery confidence his main striker finally has competent assistance.
