The second leg of the round of 16 match between Villarreal FC and Espanyol FC will be played on Thursday in the Copa del Rey. Villarreal FC are currently in the 19th spot of the Spanish La Liga. The team has not been performing well at all, and it is looking highly unlikely if they are going to survive the drop. Even in the Copa del Rey they are on the backfoot as they conceded two goals at home, and have got to it the hard way around to win the tie.

Meanwhile, Espanyol FC are one of those teams who started of the season strongly. They did extremely well but have mellowed down since then. The team in the 10th spot in the La Liga, and they really need to get a grasp of things again or else they will be tumbling down the table. However, the team has a good chance of making past this round of the Copa del Rey and will be trying their hardest to go as far as they can.
