The Levante story: A fairy-tale season. Playing at home. Key starters returning. In hopes of European qualification.
Those are the story lines ahead of the Yellow Submarine's visit to the Ciutat de Valencia in the early Sunday kick-off. Let's hope one trend holds: Villarreal has won every mini-derbi away from El Madrigal.Lineups (confirmed):
Levante (4-2-3-1): Munúa; Venta, Cabral, Ballesteros, Juanfran; X. Torres, Iborra; Valdo, Ghezzal, Barkero; Kone.
Villarreal (4-2-3-1): D. López; Mario, Musacchio, Zapata, Oriol; Bruno, Senna; Martinuccio, Ruben, Castellani; Nilmar.
The match begins at 7 am Eastern Time. I'll be awake (sigh). Endavant Villarreal!
