How to watch: In the US, the match is being shown on BeInSport’s Spanish channel.
Villarreal: Asenjo; Mario, Alavaro, Funes Mori, Pedraza; Caceres, Morlanes, Cazorla; Fornals; Gerard and Toko Ekambi. I have no idea what our formation will be, so am taking a guess as to how it will look.
Our bench is: Andrés; Ruiz, Llambrich, Layún, Trigueros, Raba, Bacca.
So that leaves out Sansone and Unal as the healthy (or not suspended) outfield players who didn’t make it this time.
Real Sociedad: Rulli; Zaldúa, D.Llorente, Héctor Moreno, Theo Hernandez; Pardo, Mikel Merino, Illarramendi, Zubeldia ; Oyarzabal ; Willian José.
Injury news: Javi Fuego had an “arthroscopic intervention” in his right knee today; he will be out at least four weeks. Jaume Costa is also going to be out of action today; interestingly, he announced that on twitter! Says it’s nothing serious—a slight muscle strain in his left leg.
