Villarreal vs Ponferradina by Isaiah
Villarreal came victorious with the score of 0-1 away to Ponferradina in the fourth round of Spanish Segunda division. The game was divided to the first half, however, the class players of the guests were able to make the difference in most cases, and with a goal of Pandiani twenty minutes before the end of the game, they took the victory.
This was the third victory in four games for Villarreal, who with ten points has climbed to second position in the league standings, behind Elche. They may facing some difficulties in their games so far, but the team of Julio Velasquez always finds the way to exceed and gets all three points. With players like defender Mellberg, midfielders Senna and Bruno, and also strikers like Pandiani and Cavenaghi, we should expect Villarreal to push for promotion and for Copa del Rey this season.
Striker Rossi and midfielder Canteros are both out long term injured, while midfielder Hernan Perez (2 games played) and striker Uche (3 games played) were missing to international duty. Anyway, Villarreal has a plethora of alternative solutions.

Ponferradina players should feel frustrated, just cause although their team is playing some good football, their results are not comparable, and therefore they have only three points after four games to the league. However, their overall picture leaves some room for optimism, and more important thing is that they show no fear so far, and do not hesitate to make their game against any opponent.
The problem for tonight is that they will field a very changed eleven, as their coach decided to rest lot of key players. Main defenders Samuel and Helder Rosario, substitute goalkeeper Santamaria, main midfielders Mateo Miguez and Ivan Moreno, and strikers Mayor and Acoran are all left out to rest.
A few days ago Villarreal came victorious from Ponferradina, and under these news, they are correctly given as the absolute favorite to win tonight. Newcomers of Ponferradina are not interested for the cup so far as their coach resting lot of players, so we should see Villarreal to win this one easy.
