Don’t look now, but Villarreal is making moves in La Liga. The small but successful club looks to continue their winning ways when they take on Athletic Bilbao on Nov. 20. This should be fun so tune in to watch!
Here’s a tip for all the teams in La Liga: don’t sleep on Villarreal. The club with the coolest nickname (El Submarino Amarillo aka The Yellow Submarine) is in third place, despite not having a Lionel Messi, 29, or a Cristiano Ronaldo, 31, on their side. Instead, they’ve got Manu Trigueros, 25, and Roberto Soriano, 25, to lead the charge when they meet Athleltic Bilbao at San Mamés Stadium in Biscay, Spain. The action kicks off at 2:45 PM ET so don’t miss a second.

Villarreal are standing shoulder to shoulder with such clubs as Atletico Madrid and Sevilla. The Yellow Submarine is in third place behind such giants as Barcelona and Real Madrid. Not bad for a club whose biggest success might be winning the Tercera Division title in 1970. They’ve been runner-ups for the Segunda Division and even for the primera division championship in 2008, but they haven’t really won the big one yet.
Could this year be different? They lost to Eibar on Oct. 30, their own La Liga loss this year. That’s one less than Barcelona – just saying. They rebounded quickly to hand Real Betis their fourth defeat in five matches, according to ESPN FC. Manu’s goal at the 21st minute opened up the lead for the Yellow Submarine, with Roberto scoring the second point at minute 52. Victor Ruiz, 27, almost scored on a free kick, but it hit the crossbar.
Athletic Bilbao (aka Los Leones) is firmly in 7th place, having dropped 4 games this season. At 17 points, the Bilbao is ten points from first place and if that’s not enough bad news, there was a report that Barcelona was looking to acquire defender Yeray Alvarez. However, the 21-year-old dismissed these rumors as “a joke,” according to ESPN.
“When they told me, I laughed. I’m not thinking about playing at Barca. I want to play here and play all the games I can,” he said. Well, he has one game he can play right away – this one against Villarreal. Good luck!
Who do you thing is going to win this game, HollywoodLifers? Villarreal or Athletic Bilbao?
