Getafe manager, José Bordalás, however said the player may not be available for the clash despite returning to training.“Erick Cabaco and Etebo are better off their injuries. We will decide if they are ready to enter the call for the game,” Bordalás said in a press conference.“In these moments of the championship, all the matches are final. We will face a direct rival and we have a lot of confidence.”Samuel Chukwueze will be available for selection for Villarreal as they hope to pick a Champions League slot and are six points off fourth-placed Sevilla with four games before the end of the season.Etebo has scored a goal in 10 appearances for the Spanish side since joining the team on loan in January from English Championship side, Stoke City. However, both teams head into this potentially-crucial contest having failed to record maximum points over the weekend, allowing Sevilla to extend their advantage in fourth position.Despite spending time in contention for the top six, both Getafe and Villarreal lost significant ground on Sevilla last weekend ahead of a potentially-pivotal showdown on Wednesday night.At a time when Sevilla defeated Leganes by a 3-0 scoreline, significantly improving their goal difference, Getafe were held by Osasuna and Villarreal were thrashed by Barcelona.Sevilla now hold a three-point lead over Villarreal, with a further point separating them to sixth-placed Getafe, while they also possess a better goal difference than both teams.With just four matches remaining, it leaves the Azulones and El Submarino Amarillo in a position where they can ill-afford another defeat if they wish to feature in next season’s Champions League.
