Betis Brings Villarreal Down To Earth

The Villarreal he is also human. He proved it Betis, which handed him his first defeat of the season (1-0) after Rodri knocked down the wall that Rulli had built in front of his goal. 420 minutes without conceding the Castellón team had endured in LaLiga until the Verdiblanco winger beat the Argentine to give the team Pellegrini three points that lift him up to third position. The goal rewarded the Sevillian reaction after a first half in which their rival collected enough chances to get ahead on the scoreboard.

Emery seems to have found the right mix that turns his team into a difficult wall to knock down and, at the same time, a train that is difficult to stop. If Villamarín’s game went goalless at the break it was largely thanks to Rui Silva and the lack of success of the yellows at the time of defining. The clash between two contenders for the Champions places started at full speed, with hardly any time to take a breather and with arrivals in both areas.

As the minutes went by, it was the people from Castellón who were taking him to their field and accumulating merits to open the scoring, although the first occasion was Verdiblanca. In one of the few concessions in defense of the yellows, Sabaly he caught a ball at Villarreal’s exit and attended Channels, which hit slightly high. The best options, however, were for Emery’s men, who know how to adapt to what the moment demands, capable of putting together the play from behind with patience until they take the ball into the opponent’s area but also of running to take advantage of the speed of jackson either stone.

The Senegalese striker is growing in each game and at the moment no one is able to separate him from the eleven. He perhaps needs to improve in the definition, as could be seen in a one-on-one that he had with Rui Silva after an error of Pezzella that his partner amended Luis Felipe running fast to block Jackson’s shot, who was also not fine when he headed a good cross from femininity.

The clearest, however, was for Lo Celso. The former Betis player received in the area after a counterattack led by Jackson and was left alone against Rui Silva, who became huge with his exit at the feet of the Argentine and managed to save the furniture, as he would also do almost at the edge of the break against a powerful shot of Gerard.

The Catalan striker had to retire injured shortly after starting a second half with a very different scenario. Pellegrini’s team managed to take over the game after many minutes at the mercy of Villarreal and in one fell swoop managed to considerably reduce the yellow arrivals in Rui Silva’s area while he began to roam the Castellón goal with more danger. It had a lot to do with it the greater protagonism of William in midfield and the greater depth of the bands, with the incorporation of Álex Moreno on the left and the imbalance of Luiz Henrique on the right.

The first great Verdiblanca chance was born from a cross from the first, a shot by Borja Iglesias that went very close to the post. Another cross, in this case a precise thread from the Brazilian, led to the first goal conceded by Villarreal in this league, after a shot from rodry at the second post. With the yellows still stunned from the blow, Luis Henrique he stood alone against Rulli, who took a good foot to avoid the second.

Emery’s team was remade but it was not quite the one from the first half. The changes did not stimulate him either, despite the skirmishes and occasions of Chukwueze on the right wing. Betis didn’t want to take any risks either and, against a Villarreal who despite everything tried until the end, dedicated themselves to temporizing to tie up three points that keep them in the wake of Real Madrid and Barcelonaalthough with the yellows also lurking despite their first defeat of the season.
