Espanyol-Villarreal Copa del Rey PREVIEW

Do we care? Sure, a bit.

Villarreal go to Barcelona to take on Espanyol in the second leg of their Copa del Rey contest. It’s a chance for players like Miguelón (and maybe Xavi Quintilla, who has been called up from the b team as well) to convince Luis Garcia they should be starting in the league.

We drew 2-2 at home so we need a win to progress. A win would give us some confidence, one can hope.

Valencia have already progressed, so maybe if we get through we could have a Valencia-Villarreal derby. That worked out OK last time we met in the Copa :)

I wish I had more team news, but there’s not much, from either side!!
