Villarreal—Almeria Copa del Rey PREVIEW

New, comment

The Submarine hope to progress to the round of 16.

Villarreal haven’t named their team yet, but coach Javi Calleja promised “rotations” in his press conference today. We might see something like this:

Andrés; Mario, Funes Mori, Bonera, Jaume Costa; Javi Fuego, Layún, Morlanes, Raba, Bacca, Sansone.

Not sure about Fuego, but he is available for the match, at least, so I am sure we’ll see him, even if he doesn’t start. Ekambi should see some time as well; other than that, we could see one or two B-teamers I suppose.

In Copa results today, Getafe, Valencia, Leganes and Espanyol all advanced; Espanyol had the toughest task but a goal from ex-Villarreal man Hernán Pérez enabled them to defeat Cadíz on away goals.
