Pellegrini has thrown a curveball with his call for the matchup in Coruña, giving Joan Tomás a chance to go with the team. The players traveling include:
Diego López, Sebastian Viera; Javi Venta, Gonzalo Rodriguez, Fabricio Fuentes, Diego Godin, Pascal Cygan, Joan Capdevila, Angel Lopez; Marcos Senna, Santi Cazorla, Robert Pires, Ariel Ibagaza, Mati Fernández, Sebastian Eguren, Ruben Cani; Joseba Llorente, Guille Franco and Joan Tomás.
I will have a full preview later. I am thinking that after Mati Fernandez turned down the move to Spartak, and with Rossi's injury keeping him out for the match, this might be the perfect time to give Mati a start behind Llorente. Fernandez scored the last time Villarreal traveled to El Riazor, and with him having shown faithfulness to the club despite a lack of playing time, I think it might be time to reward him with playing time.
Full preview coming later.
