Villarreal squad named for Huesca match

The big novelty is Rodri, who receives his first callup to the first team.

The Villarreal squad has been named for Thursday's Copa del Rey match against Huesca.  Eric Bailly is not included (I have heard, but not seen confirmed, he is out until the end of December; it is confirmed he has a subluxation, or partial dislocation, of his right shoulder) and Jaume Costa is given a rest after his miraculous recovery, while Tomas Pina is still sanctioned.  Unlike Madrid, we keep track of these things :)

The team is:

  • Keepers: Barbosa y Areola.
  • Defenders: Rukavina, Miguelón (dorsal 48), Adrián Marín (27), Víctor Ruiz, Musacchio y Pablo Íñiguez (44).
  • Midfielders: Rodri (29), Bruno, Trigueros, Jonathan dos Santos, Nahuel, Denis Suárez, Samu Castillejo y Samu García.
  • Strikers: Soldado y Bakambu
