Arsenal, a big opponent

“They’re a team with top-level players, and a lot of pace up front. We know how they play, we already saw that at our stadium. They’re a great team, one of the strongest in the Premier League. We need to be at 100% to have the chance to do something great.”

The excitement of the fans

“We’re a family. We’re all very excited, because it’s a unique momento for the club, the players and for the fans. It will be a very exciting day for Villarreal CF.”

A more experienced Villarreal
