After the tough defeat against Manchester United, Emery’s men face a key clash for their qualification against Young Boys

It is, practically, a final for Villarreal, who are presented in Bern with the need to achieve a victory that brings them closer to the much-desired qualification for the second round of the Champions League. A clash with great motivational overtones for a Yellow Submarine that arrives hurt and eager after the defeat suffered against Osasuna in the domestic championship. Inescapable appointment also for any Villarreal fan, whose dream is to return to star in a great role in Europe. After the brand new achievement of the Europa League, it is now time for the most difficult.

Even more so after the hard blow caused by Cristiano Ronaldo’s goal in the exciting duel against Manchester United, where the Castellón team deserved luck that David de Gea was in charge of denying during the 90 minutes.

It will be against Young Boys, and in Swiss lands, where Unai Emery’s men will have to show that they are that team that “aspires to everything”, as the president of the yellow club, Fernando Roig, recently affirmed. With Boulaye Dia’s only loss but with the presence of his powerful attack, the Groguet team will try to steer the course at a somewhat turbulent start to the course, full of doubts.

David Wagner’s pupils will try to delve into Villarreal’s wound, making the most of their weapons. The dizzying speed in their game already served them to defeat some ‘red devils’ who were surprised on the first day at the magical Wankdorf Stadion, which for the Swiss is more than a charm.

The goals of Gerard Moreno and Danjuma, or the electricity of Yéremy Pino, are some of the great weapons in Villarreal attack. With them, added to the good defensive work, they will seek to break the Swiss fort.
