Minus club president Jean-Michel Aulas, who is recovering from knee surgery, the OL delegation touched down at Castellon Airport Wednesday morning and set up base some 30 kilometers away to prepare for tomorrow's return leg of the Europa League Round of 32.

After a quick one-and-a-half hour flight, Bruno Genesio and company are in Spain, where they'll decide their Europa League future in tomorrow night's (19:00 local time) crucial Round-of-32 return leg vs. Villarreal.

Clear skies and warm temperatures greeted the club's charter flight that touched down in the eastern coastal city around 11:30 a.m., with the entire delegation quickly boarding a bus to take them to their base camp.   

Day one in Spain - the home soil of Mariano Diaz and Cheikh Diop - will include a pre-match press conference hosted by Bruno Genesio and Jérémy Morel (which will be shown live on OLTV), as well as a visit to the Estadio de la Ceramica for a final training session before Thursday's showdown.
