The news for the Valladolid match suggests that former Valladolid loanee Damian Escudero is expected to be out after suffering a sprained ankle on Wednesday. He has a grade two sprain of the right ankle.
Santi Cazorla is doing well. He has rejoined the group for training sessions, and yesterday was running and stretching. Santi looks to be improving, and says he "sees the light at the end of the tunnel."
