Lech Poznan will entertain Villarreal at the Stadion Miejski Poznan in their final UEFA Europa Conference League group game on Thursday (November 3).
Villarreal have already reached the knockouts and have a seven-point lead over Lech (6) in the Group C standings. Lech need at least a point to qualify for the Europa League knockout playoffs.
Third-placed Hapoel Be’er Sheva have four points and face Austria Wien in their final game. If they win and Lech lose to Villarreal, Hapoel will progress to the playoffs.
Villarreal, meanwhile, have enjoyed an unbeaten run in the competition but their four-game winning run got snapped in a 2-2 draw against Hapoel on matchday five. Samuel Chukwueze and Arnaut Danjuma scored in the second half.
Lech are unbeaten in their last four Conference League games but have played three straight draws, including a 1-1 stalemate against Austria Wien on matchday five.

Lech Poznan vs Villarreal Prediction
Lech are unbeaten since their 4-3 loss to Villarreal in their campaign opener and will look to avenge that loss at home. They have scored just seven goals in their last nine games across competitions and need to step up.
This great goal from @FCoquelin_off late on gave us the victory over @LechPoznan (4-3) in our first meeting this season!
Villarreal’s top-scorer across competitions Alex Baena is suspended, though. Nonetheless, the Yellow Submarine have enough firepower to maintain their unbeaten record in the competition. A high-scoring draw could ensue.
