Another week, another Villarreal vs. Barcelona showdown. This time it's the only two filiales in Spanish professional football. Should be a good one under the Friday night lights at the Ciudad Deportiva.
The minisubmarino has seen a boatload of changes under Julio Velázquez, including eleven(!) departures, two loan arrivals, and five promotions from the 'C' team. Let's see if either Esteban Orfano or Fernando Barrientos features tonight. And Barcelona B has suffered a number of losses to Pep Guardiola's injury-ravaged 'A' team, so they are also a team in flux.
Villarreal B (4-2-2-2): Mariño; Truyols, Lejeune, Kiko, J. Costa; Llorente, Edu Ramos; Lucas, Manu; Juanto, Bordas.
Barcelona B: Oier; Montoya, Bartra, Armando, Planas, Muniesa, Rafinha, Riverola, Deulofeu, Rodri, Kiko.
The match begins at 3 pm Eastern Time. Friday night matches allow us to watch, even if recent results have been less than desirable. Endavant minisubmarino!
