Celta took the La Ceramica stadium and knocked down a Villarreal (2-3) that reacted late and that after his exhibition scorer in the Cup this week against Almeria again regained his league version and showed himself as a vulnerable team without a goal for more than 80 minutes.
If he Villarreal He had no mercy for Almería three days ago and inflicted an 8-0 without mercy, this Saturday saw impotent as Celta de Vigo passed him on the same stage until the 82nd minute and went 0-3 on the scoreboard, although an error of the Vigo picture led to a late local reaction with two goals that ultimately did not culminate in a comeback. The game had an intense start, with the two teams looking for the opposite goal, although it was Villarreal who tried to take control of the match in the first moments.
However, it would be Celta who was able to get ahead on the scoreboard through Brais Méndez With a double shot from the Spanish international who saw Asenjo first and then the stick avoided his goal after 18 minutes of play. After a few minutes of equality was the Celta who was slightly higher as the game progressed, which allowed him to reach the Asenjo domains with fluidity and danger.
The first response with some danger from Villarreal was slow to arrive. He did it in the 25th minute of the match in a header shot from Gerrad Moreno after a center from the band that stopped without much trouble Rubén. In the last quarter hour of this first time the game was balanced. Neither Villarreal nor Celta were imposed in the middle of the field, although perhaps it was the Vigo team who roamed more the opposite field. Thus, when the match seemed to end the initial draw Brais Méndez received a pass back Iago Aspas, topped from outside the area and although Asenjo touched the ball could not avoid the goal.
If the first half ended in the best possible way for the Galicians, the start of the second half still improved the Celtic panorama, with two more consecutive goals, one in the 48th minute of Okay and the other in the 50th of Maxi Gómez that They meant a hard psychological blow and almost definitive for Villarreal despite the fact that almost the entire second half was still to be played. Given this situation, Calleja tried desperately and accumulated strikers to try to improve the situation. If in the break Ekambi had already occupied the square of Trigueros, after the third goal of Celta gave entrance to Bacca by Samuel Chukwueze to accompany Gerard Moreno in the attack.
Despite the fact that Villarreal gained weight in the playing field of the Vigo team, the visitors, with the very favorable score and a good defensive disposition, capeaban the situation without scarcely startles before a rival who returned to suffer from solvency in attack, as in most games of the present League. The game was heading to its end with an unsuccessful attempt by Villarreal to shorten distance to a serene Celta, although a serious error Ruben gave a surprising turn to the game. A pass back from the Celta player to his goalkeeper allowed the Calleja team to shorten distances on the scoreboard through Bacca after a foul executed from the center of the area that also left the visiting team.
In fact, Bacca again scored in 87 to put the 2-3 on the scoreboard and give hope to his team at least save a point in a game that was almost placid for Celta turned into a calvary, with a Gerard ball Moreno to the stick that could be 3-3 in 92. EFE
