Bruno is carrying a left ankle sprain, and Ibagaza has strained a muscle in his left leg. This means that for the important - but near impossible - match at the Camp Nou this weekend, Villarreal will hardly have a midfield to speak of. In terms of attacking players, Villarreal will be able to call on Cani, Pires, and Mati, along with B-sider Jordi Pablo. As to defensive midfield, we are even thinner, with Eguren and possibly Matilla. Having a midfield that can hold possession is tremendously important against Barcelona. This is not a good sign!
