Match Preview

Cani hoping for win Villarreal midfielder Cani hopes his side can continue their rich vein of form and take a giant step towards the knockout stages of the Europa League when they face PAOK. Villarreal make the trip to Greece on the back of a 10-match unbeaten run in all competitions, leaving them third in the Primera Division standings and two points clear at the top of Europa League Group D. The Yellow Submarine also have an excellent record against Greek teams down the years, winning four of five meetings and drawing the other, although Cani admits that will count for little tomorrow night. "Greek teams have been good for us previously, but that's by the by because every game is different. Hopefully we can continue or good form, but it's going to be a difficult game because they have great players and an impressive atmosphere in their favour," he said. "If we win we will take a giant step towards qualification." Cani's team-mate Borja Valero is also anticipating a hostile atmosphere at the Toumbas Stadium in Thessaloniki. "Whenever you play against Greek teams the atmosphere is very tough, but we must not get distracted and play our game. No matter how much they (the home fans) scream and shout, if we play how we know we can we have a good chance of winning," said the summer signing from Real Mallorca. "It's important we play our football, we are creating a lot of chances and if we continue like that then we'll be fine." Villarreal coach Juan Carlos Garrido is without Marcos Senna and Marco Ruben, who are both still recovering from injuries. PAOK were top of Group D prior to the last round of matches, but their 1-0 defeat to Villarreal at El Madrigal - Ruben netting the winning goal in the first half - dropped them down to second spot, level on four points with Dinamo Zagreb. That match was PAOK's first after the departure of coach Pavlos Dermitzakis, with his former assistant Makis Havos taking over the reins of the senior squad. Since that loss in Spain, PAOK have reeled off three successive league and cup wins domestically, and their last-gasp 2-1 victory over Ergotelis at the weekend lifted them up to ninth in the 16-team Greek Super League. Havos will be without defender Miroslaw Sznaucner due to suspension for the game.

Match Report

Vierinha stuns Villarreal Villarreal dropped from first place to third in Europa League Group D after a 1-0 defeat to PAOK in Greece. Vierinha scored the game's only goal, a header from the 5ft 8in Portuguese winger in the 70th minute, as PAOK edged out opponents who beat them 1-0 in Spain in the last round of matches. Former Champions League semi-finalists Villarreal now face a battle to reach the knock-out stages, trailing top two Dinamo Zagreb and PAOK by a point with two rounds of games to play. Villarreal, who made the trip to Greece on the back of a 10-match unbeaten run spanning all competitions, had the first chance in the first minute. Jozy Altidore was fouled by Lefteris Sakellariou and Borja Valero rifled in the free-kick from the right flank which defender Angel Lopez headed over the bar from six yards. PAOK responded and posed a threat to the Villarreal goal 10 minutes later when Vladimir Ivic nodded wide from close range. Villarreal's Ruben Cani had a 20-yard strike tipped wide by PAOK goalkeeper Dario Kresic in the 20th minute, but swiftly at the other end PAOK caused menace - only for Diego Lopez to make a safe catch to thwart Giorgos Fotakis. The visitors were being tested but troubled PAOK again after 24 minutes when a corner from Valero reached Ruben Cani, only for his 20-yard strike to sail too high. PAOK were swiftly on the attack in the second half, although Nabil El Zhar could not hit the target with his 20-yard effort. Nilmar, at the other end, was then wayward with his finishing too. After the trading of efforts on goal in the opening 50 minutes, PAOK began to dominate and had three decent chances in a 10-minute spell. Fotakis sent a shot wide of the left post before Vierinho drew a save from Lopez with a 20-yard effort. El Zhar then forced the goalkeeper into another stop. Villarreal were not out of the game and almost scored in the 66th minute when Cani's strike was blocked by defender Pablo Contreras. But the hosts were the team to finally make a chance count. Zlatan Muslimovic paved the way for the opening goal when his shot had to be touched wide for a corner by Lopez. Pablo Garcia curled the ball in left-footed from the right and Vierinha at the near post glanced the ball across goal and past Lopez, who judging by his unconvincing attempt to save the effort may have been unsighted. Villarreal poured forward in the closing stages and forced several corners as they hunted an equaliser which proved beyond them. The final chance fell in stoppage time to Joan Capdevila, but the defender's shot cleared the bar.
