The Villarreal will be on Monday between the sixteen teams in the raffle of the octaves of the Champions, who agreed on the large door. The tie was enough for the team of Uni Emery in Bergamo, where he had to lengthen his stay after the snowfall who forced himself to postpone the game on Wednesday and where he left with a victory claiming (2-3). The Castellonense team exhibited the effectiveness that has been missing throughout the season to beat an Atalanta whose reaction in the final stretch was close to making the triumph of yellows endorse.
Al Villarreal came out a party practically round the most important day. He had offered good moments the Emery team in this group stage, but many times without reward, as in the exhibition of Old Trafford that Cristiano Ronaldo left at all. In Bergamo, however, he gave an almost impeccable performance, without large bolands but with the sobriety and effectiveness that the occasion required.
He helped a lot, of course, that he marked in the first he had, taking advantage of the risks he used to take the Attranta. A demiral doubt at the exit of the ball, already in the opposite field, it turned it into a pass to the back of the Italian defense so that Danjuma would run. And few do it as the Dutch, whose power was enough to become a sterile palomino attempt to intercept him. He faced Muso and put the ball between his legs to complicate a little more for a watchman who needed victory to be in eighth.
The reaction of the gasperini team was expected, throwing up with everything and cornering the Castellonses for a few minutes. Hateboer and Maehle were two more ends in an offensive directed by Illicic and with the always intimidating shoe in between, although the Colombian found a hard bone of Roer in Albiol. The defense of Villarreal knew how to tackle the Italian attack, whose better occasions they arrived in shares at the standing ball. The air potential of Toloi and Demiral propitiated a well-resolved auctions by Rulli, which also pulled a good hand to clear a Freuler shot from the front.
The Bergamasca offensive was losing intensity with the passage of the minutes, as those of Emery were cutting a percentage of possession to his rival. With two lines of four very together and trying not to recover too much, Villarreal managed to deactivate the dangerous Italian attack. Also, he did not limit himself to defending and threw some time some time with whom to make the Atalanta did not come excessively up. Almost everyone took the signature of Danjuma, a lethal footballer with land ahead to run but he also knows how to handle well in the area, as he would show at 0-3. The Dutch picked up a Gerard pass after a great action of Catalan and turned to hit the shortstop.
It was the sprig for the Atalanta, which minutes before the break had seen how the yellows opened gap with a good action of Capoue culminated by the French player himself.
Gasperini had tried to react to his team by tagging Djimsiti and Malinovskyi to start the second time and threw more gas after the third giving Muriel. Because what did not do the Atalanta, of course, was to throw the towel. Two balls to the clubs - a powerful launch of lack of Malinovskyi and a shot of Zapata - were the prelude to the Italian reaction, which was about to put fear in the body of a Villarreal to which the fatigue and delay of Emery At the time of refreshing the equipment passed invoice.
There were twenty minutes ahead when Malinovskyi cut distances with a shot from the front that touched lightly on Moi Gómez's heel to leave Rulli sold. And ten when Zapata did the second after receiving from Ilicic and raise the ball over the Argentine goalkeeper exit. And he still had muriel time to crash on the pole a shot whose rejence left after bouncing in Toloi but the Italian reaction did not prevent the classification of Villarreal.Date Of Update: 09 December 2021, 15:55
