Like Bilbao, Villarreal’s defense is also playing very well when only conceding 5 goals. 8 rounds have passed, the current Golden Submarine is the team with the most draws in the tournament with 5 points divided. Of which all their trips in La Liga this season ended with a draw. Owning a squad can be said to be quality, but having to fight in the Champions League makes Unai Emery’s men not able to get the desired results in the domestic tournament.
