Liga Santander: Villarreal's hit back to Europe | LaLiga Santander 2019



The yellow team catches the sixth place after defeating Levante with goals from Gerard and Moi Gmez

Gerad Moreno, with his tenth goal in LaLiga, put the victory on track.

The duel between the top national scorers at the Estadio de la Cermica was taken by Gerard Moreno, who with his tenth of the championship equal to Roger Mart and Angel, advanced to Villarreal and put up a victory (2-1) to allow the yellow team finish the day in European positions for the first time in a long time. The team of Calleja threw effectiveness in beating a Levante pelen but who missed the shot left over from his rival.

Enter Levante to the game by harassing. Five minutes later he had already thrown as many corner kicks but it was Villarreal who bit the first one he had, in a long pass from Cazorla that Alccer went down pointing the ball towards Gerard. The Catalan profiled and took advantage of the centimeters that Clerc gave him to arm the left-handed and cross away from the reach of Aitor.

The 'granota' team dominated but those of Calleja didn't need to have too much money to generate danger, as in a Moi Gmez launch that Aitor cleared. The answer was given by Roger Mart, the most active in the Valencian attack and after not getting very close to a good delivery from Clerc to the area he had a good option for the tie in a cross shot after winning his back to the defense. He tried especially on the sides of the Levant, taking advantage of the incorporations of Clerc and the verticality of Rochina, whom Iborra had to tear down when he was going to face Asenjo after a good pass from Roger. Calleja opted to leave Moncada on the bench at the break after the second yellow was played in a jump with Vukcevic.

Paco Lpez's team needed to move the ball more quickly to overflow a very solid Villarreal in defense, where Rubn Pea returned to act on foot changed on the left-handed side and endured one more week Funes Mori despite being already available Pau. The yellows were gaining prominence with the passing of the minutes, growing in the match at the rate marked by an omnipresent Cazorla. The Spaniard put Alccer one of those passes to the back of the defense that are dynamite in the boots of the forward but Aitor was quick to go to court. At the start of the second half he left another detail of his great class breaking Campaa's waist on the front with a subtle touch to leave the ball in his left foot. Aitor cut his shot, strong but focused.

The danger of the Levant came to a standstill, the great must of this Villarreal. Bardhi forced Asenjo to show off in one of those free throws that the Macedonian embroiders and in the subsequent corner kick Moi Gmez deflected the ball, which ended up crashing into the post. The goal came after one of Clerc's internships, which put a good center that finished off the Mayoral net on the second post.

The happiness for the tie to Paco Lpez's team was short. Barely four minutes after Villarreal came back ahead after a good hit from Moi Gmez from the front, although we had to wait no less than five minutes to ratify the VAR, who was studying up to a millimeter a possible offside Gerard before he attended Moi.

Half an hour ahead, Levante had to take risks, starting with the system, moving on to play with three backs, delaying its Campaa position to throw the sides up. The scenario was perfect for Chukwueze, who soon appeared to try to sentence the counter but the two clear actions of danger generated by the yellows broke up a very careful Vezo. El Levante, with unclear ideas, barely got a ball into the area that Miramn finished off badly.
