Villarreal B take on Athletic B in San Mamés

New, comments

A ‘doubleheader’ in Bilbao.

Villarreal CF

Athletic Bilbao had the bright idea to play a doubleheader of sorts at San Mamés today. The first team is taking on Espanyol, and after that, their second team (Athletic Club B, a/k/a Bilbao Athletic) takes on Villarreal B in the first round of the promotion playoffs.

As I have noted before, key for the B boys will be keeping this one tight—if we can get a draw here that would set us up in good shape for the return leg I think.

It can be watched on Villarreal LIVE, and feel free to use this as a gamethread if you catch it. (Note too Villarreal LIVE gets streamed on YouTube, too).

Other results so far:

group winners: Cartagena 2-1 Rayo Majadahonda; Mallorca 3-1 Mirandés

others so far: Celta B 2-0 Marbella; Fuenlabrada 0-0 Real Sociedad B; Cornella 2-2 Sporting Gijon B.

Endavant Villarreal!
