How to watch: BeINSport’s channel 5 is showing it—in the US and Spain, at least, that’s one of the channels FuboTV brings you. A week’s free trial can be had here.

The teams: Villarreal go with Andrés; Layun, Bonera, Alvaro, Jaume Costa; Raba, Trigueros, Caceres, Pedraza; Bacca and Toko Ekambi. I guess this is a 4-4-2 but really, who knows.

Bench: Barbosa, Victor Ruiz, Miguelon Llambrich, Fornals, Iborra, Samu Chukwueze, Gerard.

(hands up, all those who had forgotten Dani Raba was even an option...uh, me for one)

Espanyol: (4-3-3): Roberto; Rosales, David López, Duarte, Pedrosa; Sergi Darder, Alex López, Esteban Granero; Hernán Pérez, Borja Iglesias, Pablo Piatti.

(interesting question: how many of those espanyol players have been linked with Villarreal in the past? I see at least three).
