Villarreal vs Las Palmas lineups
Villarreal halted their winless run with a 1-0 victory over Rennes in their midweek Europa League fixture; they had no wins in four prior games, with two draws and two losses. Pacheta will hope to steer his team to their second consecutive victory as Las Palmas come to town. He will not be able to call upon the services of Alejandro Baena, who is suspended for this match. Baena leads the team in assists.
Predicted lineups: Jörgensen, Terrats, Albiol, Gabbia, Pedraza, Morales, Parejo, Capoue, Pino, Sørloth, Díaz.
On the other hand, Las Palmas held their own against Celta Vigo last weekend, notching their second win of the season.

Omenuke Mfulu, Fabio Gonzalez and Sandro Ramirez are still sidelined for the visiting team.
Predicted lineups: Valles, Lemos, Suárez, Mármol, Cardona, Loiodice, Rodríguez, Pejiño, Haddadi, Muñoz, Kaba.

Player to watch: Alexander Sørloth
It's worth mentioning that Alexander Sørloth scored the lone goal in Villarreal's 1-0 win over Rennes a few days ago; and with the absence of Alejandro Baena, the Norwegian will be called upon to provide the goals. Sørloth has scored four La Liga goals for Villarreal so far; it'll be interesting to see how he matches up against Las Palmas' defense.
