The six-game unbeaten streak is over. Now bring on another derbi and league leader to Vila-real.
This time it's Villarreal B hosting Hércules in a prime-time Segunda showdown at the Ciudad Deportiva. Expect a full house, for a nice change. At least their fans pay.
Manager José Molina has a few absences tonight:
Keepers: Diego Mariño, Jorge.
Defenders: Jaume Costa, Kiko Olivas, Toño, Florian Lejeune, Dorian Dervite, Pere Martínez.
Midfielders: Gonzalo Castellani, Fofo, Jordi Pablo, Nico, Iriome, Toribio, Llorente, Chiqui Guerrero.
Strikers: Joselu, Airam Cabrera.
Kike López and Mano are ill, while Marcos Gullón is with the A team (good for him). And Lucas Porcar has disappeared from view. Expect former C team players galore in the starting XI.
This match was postponed from jornada 1 because of the players' strike. Good thing we are catching our neighbors from Alicante on the downturn.
The match begins at 4 pm and airs on Canal Nou Dos. Expect a few streams. Endavant minisubmarino!
