Villarreal have announced their team for the match at Sporting tomorrow. It is:
- Keepers: Asenjo and Barbosa.
- Defenders: Mario, Bonera, Víctor Ruiz, Eric Bailly and Rukavina.
- Midfielders: Trigueros, Bruno, Denis Suárez, Samu García, Jonathan dos Santos, Castillejo and Nahuel.
- Strikers: Soldado, Bakambu, Leo Baptistao and Adrián López.
Missing are Areola (manager's decision), Jaume Costa, Pina and Musacchio (various niggles). B teams like Rodri and Pedraza have not been called up because they are needed for a match at Espanyol B Sunday (kickoff 90 minutes before the first-team match). Anyone's guess as to who plays but I would expect the two Samus to see action somewhere.
