Uncomfortable echoes of Garrido days when I look at our starting lineup. What has happened to Espinosa?

I don't know what it is that gets into coaches' heads, but it seems after 15-18 months or so of success, they start doing strange things.  I am joking a bit; we don't know how players train, what happens in practice, what might be going on behind the scenes.  But it does seem odd that Marcelino has decided to play Rukavina out of position, and Espinosa remains on the bench, doesn't it?

Our XI is: Asenjo, Mario, Gabriel, V.Ruiz, Marín; Bruno, Jona dos Santos, Rukavina, Cheryshev; Vietto and Gerard.
