Altidore's Turn?

Well, Altidore just might find his way into a La Liga match this weekend. Guille Franco went down with an injured knee in training Monday - nothing to worry about in the long run, but enough to keep him out of action on Sunday. Thus, out of five strikers in the Villarreal squad, Nihat, Rossi and Franco are out, leaving Llorente and Altidore. Expect Llorente to start, but even if Pellegrini goes with a 4-2-3-1 (I could really go for a 4-4-2 with Ibagaza as the withdrawn striker, Mati/Pires and Cazorla on the wings), Altidore has a great chance of sneaking into the lineup around the 65th minute.
