Rayo Vallecano beat Villarreal this Monday after a game in which the goalkeeper Stole Dimitrievski supported the Madrid team in a great first half for the yellows while ergio Camello surprised the local defense in the second with a quick goal after a throw-in with which the franjirrojos approached to Europe and, in turn, cut a good dynamic of Villarreal.
The Vallecano Ray, bravely, he tried to be the protagonist in La Cerámica against a Villarreal who did not like this condition and that he stirred every time he recovered the ball with quick counter-attacks, being able to create a first chance after five minutes after a loss by Pathé Ciss that Yeremy gave to Baena and Baena opened for Yeremy, but the canary’s cross shot skimmed timber.
Iraola’s team had the initiative, but a secure yellow defense prevented the visitors from entering the area and, after the first fifteen minutes of equality, Setién’s team monopolized the ball. Villarreal besieged Dimitrievski’s goal, but the goalkeeper thwarted Gerard’s header and a double chance from Baena and Capoue.
WhileCamel did not get the balls to test the young Jorgensen, who debuted this Monday in LaLiga due to some slight discomfort from Pepe Reina, and Villarreal kept the pace high with two shots from Moreno and Chukwueze that missed over the crossbar.
It wasn’t until minute 43 when Rayo had the clearest chance of the first act with a heel shot from Pathé Ciss that lacked strength and was able to catch the goal of the Villarreal affiliate.
After the break, Villarreal resumed the game with a shot from Moreno that came close to the squadbut the locals were not precise in circulation and Rayo managed to recover balls in the rival field.
The franjirrojo team got rid of the rival pressure and the changes of Chavarría and Unai López reactivated Rayo, who made Villarreal suffer, who Trejo surprised after a throw-in that served first to space for Camello, who left down the left wing and beat Jorgensen with a low and crossed shot (m.70).
Villarreal tried to tie the match, but Rayo did not allow Setién’s men to have the ball, who were suffocated with the intense pressure of their rival. With six minutes to go, Dimitrievski rejected a shot by Coquelin with his shoulder and in added time Gerard, who missed a clear opportunity, could not prevent the fall of Villarreal, who had accumulated five games without losing.
