The Submarine sailed to Europe

Marcelino’s third game since his return and third different competition where the Asturian made his debut. After avoiding disaster against Zamora, in the Cup, and successfully defeating Osasuna, in the League, the Europa League appeared, precisely the competition that ended with Pacheta despite defeating Maccabi Haifa in Cyprus. The bad image of the team caused the dismissal of the Burgos player but the score he left Marcelino is very good to face today’s match with the guarantee of qualification if win against Panathinaikos.

Victory would mean mathematical classification, but almost as important as theirs was the confirmation that the Submarine was sailing again, with Marcelino at the helm. Stringing together three consecutive victories for the first time all season and leaving European competition (without settling for first place in the group with two remaining games) until February, would be a big plus. for this new Villarreal that has gathered three coaches in four months.

The debut in the Europa League is not important for Marcelino despite being on the bench for more than two decades. The coach has a special relationship with this competition and a challenge ahead. Careñes’ coach has been one step away from playing in the final twice, one of them with Villarreal. This was in the 2015-16 season, when Liverpool beat him in the semi-finals of the competition. In 2018-19, together with Valencia, they also lost in the semifinals of the Europa League, against Arsenal. Villarreal has a lot to do to think about greater heights but deep down, Marcelino dreams of playing at the end of this competition, one day, now that he is leading a team that has been proclaimed champion, in Gdanks, two seasons ago. From time to time.

Marcelino does not use rotations, except for the goal where Reina is. Because of this, José Luis Morales was there. His name has a red cross in reports as a possible candidate to leave this winter market. The truth is that it did not work with Setién or Pacheta. But Marcelino arrived and scored five goals in just five days: a double against Zamora and a hat-trick against Osasuna. Seeing is believing. He is currently the star of the team and wants to make his debut in the Europa League after scoring six goals last year in the Conference. Villarreal arrived with the usual loss of Denis Suárez, Pino, Sorloth, Mandi and Coquelin, who will finally have to wait a few days to return. For Panathinaikos, they are without Palmer Brown and Magnusson, both injured.
