I haven't seen this confirmed in print yet, but Javi Mata, an extremely reliable source, says Nilmar has a muscle injury (adductor, I believe) and will miss Sunday's match. He came off quite early in the Rayo match, you'll remember. it just hasn't been the Brazilian's year. So: Martinuccio, Camuñas, even Hernán Pérez maybe? Who comes in to partner Marco Ruben?

And, B teamer Pablo Iñiguez has tweeted he is still having hamstring problems, so don't look for him for a while. After a promising debut, he injured and then reinjured his leg.
