The normally reliable Aouate has been off this season.
This will be our second visit to the Baleares since Mallorca was dismissed from the Europa League in the summer of 2010. Last season's encounter was a drab 0-0 draw; neither side had much to play for. This year's edition, however, is a relegation seven-pointer.
The match begins at 12 noon Eastern Time, the same slot as Sporting vs. Atlético Madrid. Take a wild guess which match is on cable in the US. Endavant Villarreal! #MLLVIL
