Villarreal - Celta: Brais Méndez sentenced to Villarreal | sports


With Brais Méndez on the violin, scorer and assistant of Mos, Celta was giving a party at La Cerámica, bringing out all its virtues and highlighting the defects of a Villarreal who still does not meet. In seven minutes, from 44 to 51, full of football and success, the team that now runs Miguel Cardoso, scored three goals with Brais Méndez as the protagonist who opened the scoring and gave two assists, to put land in between and embrace with solvency the victory. The final celestial relaxation could cost him face. In a final arreón with pride and passion, Villarreal got two goals in the final minutes, in 83 and 86, both scored by Bacca, to distress the Celta who saw as the post, after a shot by Gerard Moreno, saved him of a draw impossible to predict in the knot of the game in which the Galicians overcame a sad Villarreal and his questioned coach Javier Calleja.

4-4-2 (D.P.)

Asenjo and the post avoided the double finish of Brais Méndez after a loss of Cáseres. It had been 20 minutes since the start for the first time in a clash against two even teams whose players, of great individual technique most of them, define the style. Villarreal and Celta feel more comfortable attacking than defending, with more pleasure for the touch than for the bailing and stealing, which give capital importance to the midfield.

It was a game of appearances and alternatives in the game, more lucid of thought and work the Celtic, who had a new opportunity showing the rest at the feet of Iago Aspas who dismantled Asenjo. Villarreal quickly answered with a shot from the edge of the Gerard Moreno area that brushed Rubén Blanco's crossbar. The celestial replica was definitive, going ahead on the scoreboard after an opening to the left side that Iago Aspas received. The Celta captain saw the arrival from the second line of attack of Brais Méndez for the international to send a goal with a subtle touch of left-footed that was put together to the right post of Asenjo's goal.

After the break, Ekambi – the Cameroonian's four-goal winner against Almería in Copa three days ago – replaced Trigueros, who is not having his season. It did not matter. The change unprotected Villarreal who went on to play with three strikers. A bargain for Celta. At the beginning of the second half, another delicatessen from Brais Méndez placing a lateral foul on the head of Okay, led to Celta's second goal. Three minutes later, again Brais Méndez, gave the ball to Maxi Gomez beating the Uruguayan to Asenjo with a cross shot that seemed to kill the game. The two final goals of Bacca and a post by Gerard Moreno could write another final.
