Hopefully it works well for you, no idea what the picture quality might be.

For the first time this preseason, our starting XI bears a more-than-passing resemblance to a starting lineup we might use in the regular season:

Barbosa; Mario, Álvaro, Semedo, Rukavina; Castillejo, Rodri, Trigueros, Soriano; Sansone and Bakambu.

Match also on Radio Vila-real if you want to listen that way.

Hard to know how Villarreal will do here—we had a long plane flight (which arrived late) and a bunch of other stuff (reunion with former Villarreal players, meeting the Argentine president, etc.) to sit through, so how ready are we for this match, really? (I know we had some technical difficulties with our last podcast, but both Sid and I said we thought the Milan match would be a better measuring stick of where we are at this point). Keep in mind Soldado, Unal, and mario Gonzalez were among those who didn’t travel due to injury, so Sansone and Bakambu are really our only two strikers here as far as I know. I’d expect Fornals to get some action later, but maybe not that many other subs. We’ll have to see.

It should be an amazing atmosphere—Endavant Villarreal!
