VILLAREAL VS ATALANTA.
Villarreal and Atalanta will likely battle things out for second spot in Group F behind favourites Manchester United, and the Spaniards can draw first blood on la Dea at Estadio de la Ceramica on Matchday 1.
While Atalanta ready themselves for a third straight UEFA Champions League campaign, Villarreal prepare to embark on their first Group Stage outing since 2011/12, but there’s reason to believe that Unai Emery’s squad can overcome their lack of experience at Europe’s top table.
The Yellow Submarine were crowned UEFA Europa League champions last term after edging out Manchester United in the showpiece, and they’ve quickly established a reputation for being a well-drilled and streetwise side who are extremely difficult to play through and break down.
They posted a flawless seven wins from seven at la Ceramica en route to their Europa League success, beating the likes of Arsenal and Dynamo Kiev along the way, and they could well have too much nous here for an all out attacking Atalanta team who have been poor in their last two domestic starts.
Prediction:Both teams to score.
YARACUYANOS VS DEPORTIVO LARA.
The hosts have conceded an average of 1.68 goals while the visitors have conceded an average of 1.89 goals.
Prediction:Both teams to score with Deoortivo Lava winning.
