Not only does Villarreal’s first team head down to Valencia to take on Los Che at the Mestalla, but a couple of hours before, Villarreal’s second team hosts Castellón in what should be a fiery derby at the Mini Estadi.
Castellón have had all sorts of problems in the boardroom, and I can’t pretend to keep track of them, but they did manage to escape the Tercera last year and are in the Segunda B for the first time in eight years. This will be the first time they’ve visited Vila-real to play our second team since the 2009-10 season, when both were in the Segunda.
The match will be televised live on Villarreal TV. Even though Castellon are currently in the relegation places, this is a big match for them and they are sure to be a tough opponent. Endavant Mini-Submarí!!
