Trophy was near
Villarreal was on the verge of winning the UEFA Super Cup. The Spanish team lost the final against Chelsea in a thrilling penalty shootout. During the second half of the game, the Yellow Submarine created more chances and kept the ball most of the time. It is obvious that the team managed by Unai Emery is going to be a major factor in La Liga this season.
Hopes for a Better Season
Granada had a successful previous season as the team reached the quarter-finals of the Europa League (defeated by Manchester United – 0-2; 2-0). The team finished in the 9th position or second season in a row in the top 10! Granada signed Carlos Bacca from Villarreal and the promising Barca midfielder Monchu. The team has appointed the former coach of the national team and Monaco Robert Moreno.
The improvement in Villarreal since the appointment of Unai Emery is obvious. The team will do all it takes to start the season with a victory!
