Villarreal squad announced for Eibar

Cheryshev included, no Pato.

The squad is:

  • Keepers: Asenjo and Andrés Fernández.
  • Defenders: Mario, José Ángel, Jaume Costa, Víctor Ruiz, Musacchio and Álvaro.
  • Midfielders: Bruno, Trigueros, Cheryshev, Samu Castillejo, Soriano, Jonathan dos Santos and Rodrigo.
  • Strikers: Sansone, Bakambu y Santos Borré.

No real surprises here.  Pato is still recovering from the mumps apparently, Bonera--who probably would not have been selected anyhow--has a muscle strain.  N'Diaye, Barbosa and Rukavina are coach's decisions to leave off the roster--maybe a hint they'll start on Thursday in the EL?

So 4-4-2, or 4-2-3-1?  We'll see how Escriba plays it.  Well, maybe some of us will--with a 4AM kickoff in my time zone and no TV, it is going to be difficult....
