Villarreal rejoins the Champions League

Villarreal, with their 1-4 victory in Bern against Young Boys, has re-engaged in the fight for qualification in the Champions League.

Two headers by Yeremy (m.6) and Gerard Moreno (m.16) soon overtook the Spanish team, who did not know how to stop their rival or close the game with a third goal, so the Swiss team got into the crash with a goal a quarter of an hour from the end.

With the game almost over, Alberto Moreno and Chukwueze rounded off the outside win with a very wide victory for the equality seen throughout the clash.

Despite the quick advantage gained, Villarreal failed to get it to be played in the way that most interested them and there was much more back and forth football than suited their interests.

In the initial stretch of the game, Villarreal was intractable. He scored on the first two times he reached the Swiss team’s goal. In the first place, Yeremy Pino headed a good cross from Pedraza and shortly after, in a foul, Parejo threw and the header came from Gerard Moreno.

With that advantage, Villarreal tried to impose a low rhythm to the game and succeeded for a few minutes, but was overcome from the halfway point of the first half.

From that moment, the Young Boys imposed their law and with quick counterattacks and had almost half a dozen chances to score.

One of them ended up at the post in a phase of the clash in which Villarreal was at the mercy of their opponent.

Only in the last ten minutes of the first half, Unai Emery’s team recovered, took the ball again and managed to reach the break with a comfortable victory.

This scoreboard was a good reward for the Spanish team, but it punished an intense rival in excess, which in this way supplied the lower quality than its rival.

It had been a first half of alternatives, entertaining and with good football between a compact Villarreal and a Young Boys with speed against them.

Although Pedraza was able to make it 0-3 in a delivery to the crossbar with hardly any angle (m.51), the Swiss team attacked with intensity in pursuit of a goal that would get him in the game.

The clash was for that situation or for Villarreal to close it with a third goal, since the visitors could not impose a slow and low intensity rhythm to the game to try to bore their opponent.

The Young Boys changed their approach from three centrals to the line of four with half an hour to go.

The Swiss team did not manage to take control of the reins of the crash and their options to shorten distances were limited to sporadic actions against Rulli’s goal, but Villarreal did not make the rival fear either, since in the second half, although solid behind, they always played away from the goal of Von Ballmoos.

The result of the arrivals of the Swiss team was, in a counterattack, Elia’s goal who, finally and after much insistence, got his team into the match to fight at least for a draw in the last minutes of the confrontation.
