Thread: Villarreal B vs. Almeria

Our B team hosts Almeria today, and there should be streams (game time is 10AM EDT).  This is going to be a difficult match for us: Almeria can go top of the table with a convincing win, and our home form has been rather poor, especially when it comes to preventing goals. 

  Almeria may have sold Piatti and Alves after they were relegated, but they still have another Argentine, José Leonardo Ulloa, who scored seven goals in the Primera last year and has already tallied eight in the Segunda.  They've added experience, too, with midfielder Soriano coming over from Osasuna and Dani Bautista arriving from Girona to bolster the defense.  An experienced club--12 players on their roster are 25 years old or more, which is exactly 12 more than we have!

   And if that weren't enough, Coach Molina is without first-team keeper Diego Mariño, with the U-21 national team, and Fofo, Kike Lopez, and Truyols are all out with injuries.  So here's the squad for this match:

Goalkeepers: Jorge y Ortolà.
Defenders: Jaume Costa, Kiko, Toño, Lejeune, Carlos Tomás y Pere.
Midfielders: Marcos Gullón, Llorente, Toribio, Iriome, Nico, Pedro Vázquez y Castellani.
Attackers: Joselu, Airam y Lucas Porcar.

  Joselu is back in the squad with no Primera game this weekend. 

By the way, Dorian Dervite seems to have disappeared from the B team roster on the official site--anyone know why?  He's not in the call, nor is Jordi Pablo, Chiqui Guerrero or Dutra.

Endavant minisubmarino!
