Villarreal will be aiming for an upsetting win when they face Juventus is this Champions League game.
The Yellow Submarines won the Europa League last season and progress to this stage of the Champions League for the first time since 2009.
Knowing they cannot fall back to the Europa League, they will want to make the most of this chance and Juve has been inconsistent.
The Italians won their group and added Dusan Vlahovic to their squad in the last transfer window.
However, they continue to struggle for consistency in this second half of the campaign and it could cost them a place in the next round of the Champions League.
They have been eliminated from this stage by Lyon and FC Porto in the last two campaigns and Max Allegri will not want that trend to continue.
However, he watched his team struggle and only picked up a draw against Torino at the weekend. That is not the best way to prepare for this game.
Villarreal won their last competitive game 4-1 at Granada and will approach this match with a lot of confidence.
This is the first competitive meeting between both clubs and it would be interesting to see who has the upper hand.
