Villarreal CF, with an unleashed Gerard Moreno, wants to assert their status as favorites against Croatian Dinamo in Zagreb and certify their place in the semifinals in the first leg match (8:00 p.m., Movistar Champions League). On the fast track, that’s how launched the Yellow Submarine beats. The yellow box has recovered Alberto Moreno, Rubén Peña, Pau Torres or Francis Coquelin, which has reinforced the team for the final stretch.

Gerard Moreno, who turned 29 yesterday, has 23 goals in all three competitions.
