Both sides kick off the La Liga campaign against each other having been promoted from the Segunda Division last season.
Almeria coach Francisco Javier Rodriguez is expected to have a fully fit squad to choose from for their return to the top flight with Jesus Joaquin Fernandez recovering from a back strain and striker Rodrigo Rios Rodri has returned from a bout of gastroentroitis.
Goalkeeper Oscar Ustari and striker Jonathan Zongo are both expected to be in the squad too despite travelling midweek from Argentina and Burkina Faso, respectively.
Villarreal will be relying on former Barcelona forward Giovanni Dos Santos to supply the goals after signing on from Real Mallorca over the summer.
Young Serb Alexandar Pantic has been drafted in to replace Olof Mellberg whilst French striker Jeremy Perbet has signed on following a successful loan spell last term.
