With everything ready in Villarreal for the match against Maccabi and before both teams went out to warm up, an intense rainstorm battered La Ceramica stadium to put the entire game in doubt.
The Europa League match between Villarreal and Maccabi is now in doubt. With the starting eleven confirmed by both sides, the images coming in from Castellón will not fill the teams with confidence.
Lo hemos contado y visto en @MovistarFutbol. Así llueve sobre el Estadio de La Cerámica. Se acaba de ir la luz por sexta vez.
La @UEFA y el @VillarrealCF trabajan para determinar si se puede disputar o no el partido. #LaCasaDelFútbol #VillarrealMaccabi pic.twitter.com/Oy8MXdGCFX

Torrential rain began to fall in the minutes just prior to both team’s warm up. As can be seen in the video below, rain so powerful it almost seemed like it was part of a storm battered the pitch.
UEFA is studying the possibility of suspending the match if the rain does not stop and the match is unable to be played.
