Result: Villarreal 2-1 Napoli

New, comments

Who: Villarreal – Napoli
What: Europa League, Round of 32, 2nd leg
When: 21:05 Spain; 15:05 Eastern Time
Where: Estadio El Madrigal, Villarreal
TV: GolTV (US)

My projected starting XI:

Diego López
Mario – Musacchio – Gonzalo – Capdevila
Cani – Bruno – Borja – Cazorla
Rossi – Nilmar

Expect no surprises from either Garrido or Mazzarri in this elimination game. On our end, Marchena is suspended (yellow card accumulation), so Musacchio should pair with Gonzalo in central defense. For Napoli, Cavani, Hamšík, and a rested Lavezzi (suspended in Serie A) should start in their typical attacking trident.

We must win to advance, whether in 90 minutes, extra time, or penalties. And we are Spain's last hope in the Europa League. Endavant Villarreal!
