The squad for Saturday's game has been announced and it does NOT include Nilmar, whose right knee is bothering him again. Marco Ruben is injured, so Gerard Bordas is the only other striker named to the squad apart from Rossi (not 100% either, probably). Perhaps Hernán Pérez or Camuñas will end up playing as a second striker? The team is:
Keepers: Diego López, César.
Defenders: Mario, Zapata, Gonzalo, Musacchio, Catalá, Marchena, Joan Oriol.
Midfielders: Senna, Bruno, Camuñas, Cani, Borja Valero, Hernán Pérez, De Guzmán.
Strikers: Rossi, Gerard.
Marca points out, incidentally, Villarreal have never won a Jornada 7 match in the Primera--that's in 12 years. Time to break that duck.
