Villarreal are on fire, having won their last five matches! Will they make it six by defeating Valencia on Dec. 31 or will the Bats shut down their La Liga rivals? HollywoodLife.com wants you to see every second of this incredible soccer battle!
Gooooooooal! It’s time to get one last soccer game in before the end of the year. Before the New Year’s Eve partying begins, Villarreal and Valencia will hope to end 2015 with a bang — and a victory, as these two La Liga clubs will meet for one last match before 2016!
Villarreal will host their Spanish brothers for a kickin’ New Year’s Eve party, when the Valencia Club de Futbol travels to Estadio El Madrigral on Dec. 31 for a La Liga matchup. The action kicks off at 10:00 a.m. EST, so clear up your schedule to get one game in before 2015 ends.
The Villarreal Yellow Submarines (yes, they’re actually called The Yellow Submarine) are on a hot streak, having won their last five matches, according to the International Business Times. Leo Baptistao and Mario Gaspar have recovered from injuries and might be able to start against Valencia, helping notch another victory.
However, the Valencia Bats would like to put an end to their La Liga rival’s good luck. Unfortunately, they’ve only won one of their last five matches in all competitions. Their last La Liga win was in November, when the defeated Celta Vigo. But, history is on their side, as Valencia has beaten Villarreal in four of their last six head-to-head matches.
Valencia is considered the third-most popular club in Span, behind heavyweights Real Madrid and Barcelona. It’s also the biggest club in the world in terms of associates (or, registered paying supporters) with more than 50,000 season ticket holders and 20,000 more on the waiting list. Hopefully, the masses can come out and root on The Bats to victory.
Villarreal, on the other hand, are not as big as their Spanish brothers. While they haven’t won as many championships as Real Madrid, Barcelona or Valencia, they have not been pushovers. It’s only a matter of time before El Submarino Amarillo raise a golden trophy.
