LA LIGA Santander Experience - Robert Pires tests the audience knowledge on Villarreal

The former Villarreal player and current LaLiga ambassador steps up for Matchday 33 in LaLiga's Ultimate Xpert to surprise us with the question which he has prepared for all those who think they know everything there is to know about the Yellow Submarine.

The question focuses on figuring out what the club's highest ever finish is in the competition, but would you still be able to come up with the right answer if the club were referred to with this particular nickname? The Yellow Submarine refers to the well-known Beatles song, given that the tune rang out on the terraces during the 1967/68 season, coinciding the club's promotion to the Tercera Division, Spain’s fourth tier.

Later on, when the club became part of the footballing elite, they changed from wearing their yellow shirt with blue trim and blue shorts to all yellow in honour of their nickname.
