first_imgImanol Alguacil: “The one who failed today was me”The coach of the Royal Society, Imanol Alguacil, assured this Sunday, after the defeat of his team in Anoeta, that he who failed before the visiting team was he, the coach “txuriurdin”. Sheriff had planned to change Igor Zubeldia on the break, who had a yellow card and was very exposed in his defensive tasks by the Real’s attack game, before he committed the penalty that changed the sign of the match in favor of Villarreal . “I have not helped them enough because I had to have made the decision before, but of course after seeing …”, the blue and white coach lamented, who saw a first half in which his players were “far superior to them.” Sheriff also regretted the missed occasions by the Royal, another key to the defeat in which the modifications introduced by his rival after the break also had an impact. “We made a great first half, before a great rival, then they made a system change that hurt and, although we tried until the end, it was not possible and it was a shame,” said the coach from Gipuzkoa. After the first round, Imanol Alguacil took stock of the 19 games, said he was satisfied with the 31 points he has added and, above all, because “the team is close to winning in all matches and the results are not bad, but you have to achieve more with this style of play, “he said.Calleja: “Now you can dream about Europe”The Villarreal coach, Javier Calleja, did not hide his joy for the important victory in San Sebastian, congratulated his squad and said that “now you can dream about Europe”. “I am very optimistic, I always see the future well and we do nothing but grow. You have to fight for it, but with your feet on the ground because there is a whole second round and to win you have to do many things well,” said the coach Villarreal after the meeting. Calleja considered that his team is in “a good time” and was glad because 2020 begins as 2019 ended, “on the same line.” “Against top rivals the team gives the best version of itself,” he said. Precisely the margin of improvement that the Madrid coach sees is in the “games against” teams from half of the table down. “” That is our mole right now, “he added. The Villarreal coach also appreciated the victory to face to a Real that “offensively is one of the best teams in the competition.” He believes that the key to the victory was in “the change of system and in the way of pressing” of his men, which was when they began “to hurt.” They reminded him that Villarreal has spent 17 days playing away from home and scoring, something that reflects for Calleja that his squad “has a goal, talent and knows how to play offensive”, so he understands that “it is time to improve the defensive facet to be more forceful” . Goals1-0, 21 ‘: Willian José, 1-1, 57 ‘: Asparagus, 1-2, 71 ‘: Casserole Clear options came from the goal of Real, and also Villarreal. They started hitting the txuri-urdin, with a greater presence with the ball; but Villarreal responded immediately with quick transitions that neither Chukweze nor Gerard Moreno were able to finish. Nor Ødegaard and Portu were aiming fine. Until Willian José arrived to take advantage of a good Portu service from the right. The Brazilian did not forgive in a small area to open the scoring of a very busy game and could have come with many more goals to rest in both goals. The Real dominated a little more, which could have widened the difference with several Ødegaard pipes that failed to take advantage; but Villarreal didn’t wrinkle with his kickbacks.After the break, the scene of the meeting changed completely. Villarreal took advantage of the first option he had to tie, after a controversial move that could have changed the sign of the game even more. Chukweze entered like a rocket in the area of ​​the Royal Society and was clearly shot down by Zubeldia, who could have seen his second yellow and was ejected. The VAR reviewed the play for a possible offside of the Villarreal player, but there was none; and the referee did not understand that Zubeldia should have seen the red card. Trigueros did not fail from eleven meters and the draw was the beginning of the end for the San Sebastian. Calleja put Cazorla and Alberto Moreno on the pitch changing the game system, populating the field center, and the Txuri-Urdin were not able to adapt and neutralize the improvement with the yellow submarine ball.Touched the Real, Villarreal took advantage of its effectiveness to overcome the match thanks to Santi Cazorla. The Spaniard could have been offside, in a very fair position; but the VAR validated its position with great uncertainty and gave validity to 1-2 which was ultimately final. The realistic team was not able to find the possible interiors that Villarreal left in the first part and had the success of covering after the break. That hurt him because he lacked clarity in the final meters, to the point that only Merino had clear options to finish off, and one crashed into the crossbar. But little more offensive baggage in the second part, little to much he insisted and for the possession he had. Villarreal became great in defense, especially with Albiol and Pau Torres on the defensive axis, and endured the final minutes without great trouble to take a victory that puts him fully in the fight for European positions. ChangesAlberto Moreno (59 ‘, Xavier Quintillá), Casserole (60 ‘, Moi Gómez), Robin Le Normand (61 ‘, Igor Zubeldia), Isak (70 ‘, Willian José), Januzaj (74 ‘, Ander Guevara), Rubén Peña (81 ‘, Samuel Chukwueze) Add and follow the Villarreal at the expense of the Royal Society. The yellow submarine achieved its third straight victory in the Reale Arena, tracing the San Sebastian, who went from more to less, making a great first part, but sinking after the break. Willian José scored first, did not take advantage of the Real to expand the scoreboard before going through changing rooms; and Villarreal thanked him for taking advantage of his only two opportunities, which had to be validated by the VAR. La Real, even so, closes the first round in European positions; Villarreal looks out on the European balcony with three consecutive wins. The game started electric, as it was presumed having two contestants facing the opponent goal boldly. The Real, being the home team, tried to carry the weight of the contest trying to control the possession; but Villarreal, true to his style and without knowing how to speculate, also tried to discuss the domain of the ball. Trigueros and Ødegaard handled the final meters of their teams’ attacks, although the decisive actions were still lacking. And the defenses, always demanded with two such cheerful teams, began to suffer more and more as the minutes passed. In that context the occasions did not have to take long to arrive.
