Villarreal and Dinamo Zagreb name starting lineups for Europa League quarter final second leg

Villarreal host Dinamo Zagreb this evening at La Ceramica in the second leg of their Europa League quarter final. They go into the game with a narrow 1-0 advantage from the first leg in Croatia, a result they secured through a 44th minute penalty from the man of the moment, Gerard Moreno.

Villarreal are hungry for trophies, and had been tipped by many at the beginning of the season to prioritise the Europa League over La Liga. Now they’re in the business end of the season and in the moments that matter, something Unai Emery, a specialist in this competition having won it three times, knows all about.

Villarreal overcame Sivasspor, Qarabag FK, Maccabi Tel-Aviv, RB Salzburg and Dynamo Kyiv to get this far. Dinamo overcame Feyenoord, CSKA Moscow, Wolfsberg, Krasnodar and, most recently and most famously, Tottenham Hotspur. They came into the competition after failing to qualify for the Champions League group stage.
