Villarreal will face Hajduk Split on Thursday in an attempt to reach the Europa Conference League group stage. The first leg match that will be happening in Spain will see the Yellow Submarine as the heavy favourites. Even though this might not be the competition Unai Emery’s side would be looking to play this season, they will still do their best to reach the group phase of this tournament. Villarreal have been excellent in Europe over the last two years. First, they won the Europa League in 2020-21 before reaching the semifinals of the Champions League last year.

This season though Villarreal have to be content with Europa Conference League football. They prepared for this tie in the best possible way by beating Real Valladolid 3-0 in La Liga at the weekend. Being regarded as one of the early title challengers, Emery’s side will look to go deep in this competition. Meanwhile, Hajduk Split have already played one round of qualification in this competition when they got the better of Portuguese outfit Vitoria de Guimaraes. However, they have had a mixed start to the Croatian domestic league, as they are currently third with six points from three games.
