Match Thread/Result: Villarreal 0-1 Celta

New, comments

Per Kenez, here is the squad:

GKs: Diego López and Xavi Oliva.
Ds: Godin, Marcano, Javi Venta, Capdevila and Ángel.
MFs: Eguren, Bruno, Marcos Senna, Cazorla, Pires, David Fuster, Cani and Ibagaza.
Fs: Rossi, Nilmar and Llorente.

Here's a stab at the starting XI:

Diego López
Javi Venta – Godin – Marcano – Capdevila
Pires – Ibagaza – Bruno – Cani
Rossi – Llorente

Interesting development for Celta: last game's goalscorer Arthuro is no longer with the club. Valverde is hoping for better attendance today at El Madrigal, and the club has promised to cover the fans in case of rain.

I'm at work, but I will watch the game tonight and post comments. It will be aired on GolTV on tape delay at 5 pm Eastern Time. We need this win desperately but can't keep a clean sheet, so I forecast a 2-1 scoreline. A late Celta goal will make it uncomfortable, but we will hang on. You can follow the game via Marca here. Endavant Villarreal!
