There’s no doubt who’s best maximised theirs so far this season. Villarreal are currently fourth-placed in La Liga behind Atletico Madrid, Real Sociedad and Real Madrid, while Betis are sat in eighth between Granada and Barcelona.
Villarreal’s Japanese starlet Take Kubo‘s future has been the subject of much speculation in recent times, with rumours linking him with a return to his parent club Madrid and a fresh loan deal being organised due to a lack of game time. Unai Emery has given him a starting berth this afternoon, however.
