Villarreal will return to play in European competition after beating FC Barcelona at the Camp Nou
We like Europe! Villarreal CF sealed, with the win against FC Barcelona, their place in European competition next season. The Yellows will play in the UEFA Europa Conference League, which will celebrate its second edition next season.
The Submarine are used to featuring in Europe. Counting next season, Villarreal will have featured in European competitions in 18 seasons (16 without counting the Intertoto Cup). It will be 23 top-flight campaigns, of which 18 will be in Europe. Amazing.
The standout moment is arguably the UEFA Europa League win last season. As well, with Fernando Roig as president, the Submarine have been capable of reaching the UEFA Champions League semi-finals twice and seal their place as a top-flight regular.
Other successes under Roig include finishing runners-up in the league in 2007/08, reaching the UEFA Cup semi-finals in the 2003/04 campaign, and the UEFA Europa League semi-finals in 2010/11 and 2015/16, as well as the Copa del Rey semis in the 2014/15 season.
