Villarreal’s second team enters its 24th match at the top of its Segunda B group, with 43 points; Atletico Baleares have 40, Cornella 39, Lleida and Hercules 38.
In spite of two draws in a row—the last coming when we gave up a last-kick goal in added time—we’ve maintained our lead, because the other clubs at the top have found it tough to win as well. Ejea are midtable but have won three of their last 4 matches. We defeated them 2-0 at their home ground in September and my recollection is they don’t score much but defend pretty well.
For those of you already speculating about what Villarreal’s first team may look like IF we go down to the Segunda, it’s worth dropping in on the B team games to check out players like Ivan Martín, Xavi Quintillà, and Simón Moreno.
