Villarreal B take on Atletico Saguntino shortly

New, comments

A home match for the B team, and one I'd say we have to win, both for the coach's job safety and staying away from the drop zone.

Villarreal B need to get back to the winning ways of last season.

It has not been a great start for Villarreal's second team.  We're 13th on the table with 15 points, and our last five matches have had scores of 1-1, 1-0, 0-0, 0-1, and 0-0.  Our last home match was a disappointing loss to Espanyol B, 1-0.

Saguntino are struggling too.  They are just above us in the table with 16 points, and their last two matches (both at home) have been 0-0 draws.

Players missing: Villarreal's Edgar Ié missed the last match because of yellow card accumulation, and now he's on international duty for Portugal's U-21 squad (played 90 minutes today as they defeated the Czech Republic 3-1). Saguntino will be missing a defender, Oscar Lopez, who picked up his fifth yellow last week, and also Carlos Esteve, who picked up his fifty yellow as well.  That's a loss for them because Esteve (who you may remember played for Villarreal B back in 2013-14) has six of Sagunt's 14 goals.

That aside, Villarreal B have scored 13 and allowed 13 in 13 matches, Sagunt have scored 14 and allowed 13 in 13 matches.  Sounds like a 1-1 draw is on the cards, doesn't it?  So, something else will probably happen....you can watch via stream on the official site (and it stays up on youtube for a bit afterward, if you want to catch a replay broadcast)

Endavant Minisubmarino!!
