Sun, Apr. 27, 2008 Estadio Manuel Ruiz de Lopera


  • Diego López y Viera. Javi Venta, Gonzalo, Josemi, Godin, Capdevila, Ángel y Cygan. Marcos Senna, Cazorla, Pires, Mati Fernández, Cani, Eguren y Bruno. Nihat, Rossi y Tomasson.
  • Ricardo, Casto, Juanito, Fernando, Nano, Xisco, Odonkor, Melli, Ilic, Pavone, Sobis, José Mari, Fernando Vega, Arzu, Capi, Rivera, Lima y Juande.

Villarreal have a chance to reinforce there spot in second when they travel to Seville tomorrow. Betis have somehow avoided their stadium ban and will be confident following the 3-1 humiliation of Atletico last weekend. Despite having an injury depleted side they dispatched Atletico with consummate ease. Former amarillo Jose Mari lined out for Betis last weekend and he will be looking to make his mark again this time round. Luckily for Villarreal Edu, Mark Gonzalez and Caffa wont make the game. Those three have been having a good season so their absence will be welcomed by Pellegrini.On the Villarreal side it is important that we keep on winning till the end of the season. Missing for us are Guille Franco and Josico. Tomasson makes the squad but I don't think he will start. Due to Betis' emphasis on wing play I think Pellegrini may resort to a 4-5-1 formation and look to hit them on the break.It should be the usual back four with Eguren and Senna in front. I think we have the class to deal with Betis and I would be delighted with a 0-1 win.
