Giovani Dos Santos made his return from a left-leg injury by playing 28 minutes in Villarreal’s 3-0 victory over Cadiz in the Copa del Rey. The score finalized 5-1 on aggregate and Villarreal moved on to the next round of the Copa del Rey. Giovani’s brother, Jonathan, saw the action from the stands.
Elsewhere in Europe, Carlos Vela played no part in Real Sociedad’s 2-0 win against Real Oviedo. On the other hand, Hector Moreno started for Espanyol in their 1-0 victory, and Andres Guardado played full part in PSV’s 4-3 win versus Feyenoord. Guardado’s team currently sits at the top of the table in the Dutch Eredivisie.
