Good news - Nihat is ready to go for Sunday. He had suffered a muscle strain earlier in the week, but is back in form to welcome Betis. Also, in a surprise, Tomasson, who was expected to be out for the year, will be back this weekend.
In terms of more transfer possibilities, it looks like Jonathan Pereira will be loaned out again, this time to Malaga who will be moving up to the First Division.
And of course, Diego Lopez will be welcomed back from his red card suspension, so the wall in front of the goal will look a little more solid this week.
For Villarreal fans in America, the match will be on GolTV this Sunday at 1pm. An excellent run of televised games over here, no doubt.
