3rd vs 4th in la liga this weekend as Espanyol travel to Villarreal CF with a one-point advantage in the league table. Raúl Tamudo, Iván de la Peña and Mauricio Pochettino all return from injury for Espanyol while Daniel Jarque is back from suspension.
This is one of the most important games of the season, so maybe the fact Villarreal's Uefa Cup game with FC Steaua Bucuresti was cancelled due to the icy weather conditions in Romania might be a blessing in disguise.
