An action from Celta-Villarreal.

Villarreal still does not win at home in LaLiga after drawing against Celta de Vigo, in a match in which they enjoyed numerous occasions to “kill” those of Eduardo Coudet but he ended up suffering to keep the point.

Unai Emery booked Danjuma, Alcácer y Capoue for Tuesday’s final against Manchester United in the Champions League. Villarrel explained, in a tweet, an hour before the game that all of them were out due to various annoyances, as was goalkeeper Sergio Asenjo. Gerard Moreno nor did he travel to Vigo, and on the bench were Yeremy, Estupiñán and Coquelin.

The European appointment was on everyone’s head. Also in that of the Basque coach, despite the fact that throughout the week he asked his players to focus on the duel of Sweep. Staying alive in Europe is the challenge of the “yellow submarine”, and beating Cristiano’s team would practically ensure it.

Emery raised a physical duel, placing Iborra as a defensive pivot already Rubén Peña and Alberto Moreno ahead of the sides. And that bet neutralized Celta, without ideas in attack, with Aspas and Denis Suárez missing.

His only dangerous approaches in the first half came with a shot from Nolito, to which Rulli responded well, and a very close center from Javi Galán who crashed into the crossbar. Celta gave away the first 45 minutes, and came to rest alive because Villarreal spared his life.

And it is that, without doing anything of the other world, the yellow superiority was brutal. He came forward after a monumental mistake by the goalkeeper Matías Dituro, that Parejo took advantage of to assist Alberto Moreno. That goal killed the sky blue, who saw how, despite their failure, the Argentine goal was the best of theirs, with two saving stops against Trigueros and Dia in the final stretch of the first half.

Coudet, very angry, made a move at halftime. Santi Mina and Murillo were the ones sacrificed to make way for Galhardo and Araujo. Celta took possession of the ball, but another mistake, this time by Fran Beltrán when trying to avoid giving up a corner, forced Dituro to show off with a great stretch when Trigueros shot.

Celta raised their pressure line, turned their game towards the left wing of Javi Galán and threatened with a header from Thiago Galhardo (min.62) and a shot by Araujo (min.66). Villarreal, despite the fact that Emery refreshed his eleven, gave up the ball, and his rival hit him after Rulli cleared a shot from Beltrán badly, facilitating the goal of Brais Méndez.

He had forgiven the Castellón team, and in one minute Celta almost turned the scoreboard with a cross shot from Iago Aspas, after a masterful assist from Galhardo, who brushed the post.

And it was not the last because Denis Suárez, very forced, missed an empty goal in an action invalidated by offside that could check the VAR because it seemed that Galhardo started in the correct position.
