Watch Stade de Reims vs Villarreal live! On Sunday, at 7pm CEST, the Submarine will face the French side at the Stade Auguste Delaune. The match will be shown on two Twitch channels. Villarreal CF and Rubén Martín, who will be accompanied by Mónica Benavent and Marcos Senna as commentators.
After an impressive performance and a good win in their last pre-season match against Borussia Dortmund (0-2) at the Cashpoint Arena in Austria, Emery’s men head to France to face the side currently managed by Spaniard Óscar García.
Stade de Reims were founded in 1909, and despite finishing 12th in the league last season, they have previously won the French league. Current Villarreal players Aïssa Mandi and Boulaye Dia previously played for the club, who have won Ligue 1 six times. Defensive solidity is one of the standout features for les rouges et blancs and former goalkeeper Predrag Rajković —who signed for RCD Mallorca this week — played a big role in that: last season, he was the goalkeeper to make the second-most saves in Ligue 1, keeping 11 clean sheets. Stade de Reims conceded just 44 goals in 38 league games.
Emery’s side, who are still undefeated in pre-season, will try and continue their good run after drawing with Sporting CP and beating PSV and Borussia Dortmund this Sunday in the fourth match of the European Summer Tour Color Star 2022 (7pm CEST).
