Match background Only this chapter

Villarreal have made a spectacular start to their Group I campaign, but they have company at the top of the standings in the shape of Maccabi Tel-Aviv, who also go into Matchday 3 with a maximum six points as they take on the UEFA Europa League's free-scoring stalwarts in eastern Spain.

• Villarreal began their 2020/21 European adventure with a 5-3 home win against Sivasspor, and the two-goal match-winner in that game, Paco Alcácer, came off the bench to score another double as the Spanish side came from a goal down late on to beat Qarabağ 3-1 in Istanbul. Maccabi, who beat the champions of Azerbaijan 1-0 in Israel on Matchday 1, also had to come from behind in Turkey to make it two wins out of two, goals from Dan Biton (penalty) and Dor Peretz turning the tide and securing a 2-1 win at Sivasspor after the home side had been reduced to ten men.

Previous meetings
• The clubs have been paired once before in UEFA competition, Maccabi drawing 0-0 at home on Matchday 2 of the 2017/18 UEFA Europa League before concluding their participation with an inconsequential 1-0 win at confirmed group winners Villarreal, Nick Blackman scoring the goal.

• While those matches are the only ones played by Villarreal against an Israeli club, Maccabi's other experience of Spanish opponents came in the 1996/97 UEFA Cup first round – their very first matches in the competition – when they lost 4-3 on aggregate to the Canary Islanders of Tenerife (2-3 a, 1-1 h).

Form guide
• Villarreal finished fifth in the 2019/20 Spanish Liga to return to Europe after a season's absence and participate in the UEFA Europa League group stage for the eighth time.

• The Spanish club have yet to finish outside the top two in their seven previous UEFA Europa League group campaigns and have gone through as section winners three times, including the most recent in 2018/19. Then they went unbeaten in collecting ten points to finish ahead of Rapid Wien, Rangers and Spartak Moskva before knocking out Sporting CP and Zenit and eventually crashing out to local rivals Valencia in the last eight (1-3 h, 0-2 a). Their best seasons in the competition were 2010/11 and 2015/16, when they reached the semi-finals.

• Villarreal's record at home in 22 UEFA Europa League group stage matches is W16 D3 L3, including three wins and a draw in the four since that 2017/18 Matchday 6 defeat by Maccabi.

• Maccabi made up for a disappointingly brief European campaign last season – eliminated on entry in the qualifying phase of both competitions – by retaining their Israeli league title in style to make it 23 championship wins in all. A third appearance in the UEFA Champions League group stage beckoned this term after new coach Giorgos Donis led them through qualifying ties against Riga (2-0 h), Sūduva (3-0 a) and Dinamo Brest (1-0 h), but they met their match in the play-offs, losing both legs to Salzburg (1-2 h, 1-3 a).

• The Israeli champions are therefore making their fifth appearance in the UEFA Europa League group stage. They have only progressed to the knockout phase once before, in 2013/14, and struggled in particular on their most recent appearance, in 2017/18, failing to score in their first five matches before signing off with that consolation win at Villarreal.

• Maccabi's away record in the UEFA Europa League proper is W4 D2 L7 with victories in each of the last two matches, although they failed to win any of their five UEFA Europa League qualifying fixtures on the road in between those two group stage wins (D3 L2).

Links and trivia
• Maccabi summer signing Luis Hernández is a Spanish defender who has played in the Liga for Sporting Gijón and Málaga. His record against Villarreal is W2 D1 L2.

• Hernández and Villarreal's Spanish international Pau Torres were central defensive partners for Málaga in the 2018/19 Segunda División.

• Enric Saborit is another Spaniard in the Maccabi ranks. He played in his homeland for Athletic Club (2013–18) and on loan at Mallorca (2014/15).

• Villarreal left-back Alberto Moreno was a member of the Spain side that won the 2013 UEFA European Under-21 Championship in Israel.

• Villarreal have played more matches in the UEFA Europa League, group stage to final, than any other club. This is their 77th encounter – five more than second-placed Salzburg. The eight goals they have scored this season have lifted their total to a record 132 in the competition – three more than Liga rivals Sevilla, who are the only club to boast more wins in the competition than Villarreal (42 to 40).

• Villarreal coach Unai Emery has overseen 81 matches in the UEFA Europa League proper – 27 more than any other coach. He led Sevilla to all three of their trophy successes from 2013/14 to 2015/16 and was also a losing finalist with Arsenal in 2018/19.

• Alcácer is the UEFA Europa League's joint leading scorer this season on four goals, alongside Wolfsberg's Michael Liendl.
