Villarreal-Rayo Vallecano GAMETHREAD

We have a new pitch at El Madrigal--it looks beautiful. We'll have to see how it responds to today's match.

Dennis Grombkowski

Villarreal's starting XI: Asenjo, Rukavina, Musacchio, Gabriel, Marín; Bruno, Trigueros, Cani, Espinosa; Cheryshev and Uche.  (4-4-2).

Let's hope Chery's radar is calibrated a little better today than in Germany.  Mario gets a rest, and so does Moi.

Rayo: Cristian Álvarez, Tito, Morcillo, Zé, Insua, Baena, Trashorras, Bueno, Licá, Kakuta y Leo (4-2-3-1)

Apparently Leo Baptistao played with one of Marcelino's sons in youth football--that's why Marce wanted him this summer, he's been following him since, but Atleti wouldn't send him here.  Aquino and Jony can't play against us--we put a clause that they could only of Rayo paid us €100k, and they don't have the money to do that I guess.

What do you think of our lineup?  Catch the match at BEInSport Spanish in the US, or streams in the usual places. ENDAVANT VILLARREAL!!!
