Thread: R. Murcia - Villarreal B

The rise and fall of Kike López: from training in Manchester to surplus Segunda striker.

Villarreal B looks to continue its stellar away form this afternoon at La Condomina in Murcia. Expect warmer temperatures than for our recent evening start times; conditioning may be a factor.

Real Murcia is a historic side in Spanish football. The club plays in Spain's seventh-largest city and is a short distance down the coast from our Comunitat Valenciana rivals Elche. Practically a derbi.

The pimentoneros recently completed a century in existence and have spent 18 seasons in La Liga. The past decade has been quite a roller coaster: Segunda to Primera to Segunda to Primera to Segunda to Segunda B to Segunda. Not for the faint of heart.

Villarreal B manager José Molina continues to rotate his squad:

Keepers: Diego Mariño, Jorge.
Defenders: Pere Martinez, Dorian Dervite, Florian Lejeune, Toño, Kiko Olivas, Jaume Costa.
Midfielders: Marcos Gullón, Toribio, Jordi Pablo, Chiki Guerrero, Llorente, Gonzalo Castellani, Pedro Vázquez.
Strikers: Kike López, Joselu, Airam Cabrera.

The pichichi Joselu is back in the Segunda. Maybe this is the day he pairs up with Airam? And Jordi Pablo returns to the squad, while "C teamers" (in jersey number only) Fofo and Iriome miss out.

The match begins at 12 noon Eastern Time. Look for a regional stream or Radio Nou. And stay tuned here for updates. Endavant minisubmarino!
