New, comments

Who: Espanyol – Villarreal
What: La Liga, Jornada 21
When: 21:00 Spain; 15:00 Eastern Time
Where: Estadi Cornellà-El Prat, near Barcelona
TV: ESPN3.com, ESPN Deportes

My projected starting XI:

Diego López
Cicinho – Musacchio – Marchena – Capdevila (C)
Cani – Bruno – Borja – Cazorla
Ruben – Rossi

Big match in BCN: no surprise. But this time it's out by the airport against surprisingly formidable Espanyol. Let's see how they respond without numerous regulars.

Third place and automatic qualification into next season's Champions League would be nice, but our distance from fifth place has been my barometer all season. By that token, a draw would be OK. And our poor away form speaks for itself.

Let's hope for an attractive match. Endavant Villarreal!
