The match is on. Villarreal will be at the Budapest Honvéd celebration. It will be the Villarreal B team who will take on Budapest Honvéd in the very important friendly match this Saturday (8pm). Initially, the plan was for the Yellows first team to play this friendly, but due to the two positive Covid-19 results it will be Miguel Álvarez’s side who will head to Hungary on Saturday morning.  

Despite being a friendly match, it is a very special event as it is the inaugural match at the spectacular Bozsik Arena, the first UEFA Elite Stadium in Hungary.
