Villarreal, with wet gunpowder against Maccabi Haifa

0-0 for the ‘Yellow Submarine’ in their postponed match on matchday 3


Villarreal CF drew goalless this Wednesday against Maccabi Haifa, despite having several chances, in a match corresponding to matchday 3 of Group F in the Europa League, and which was suspended at the time due to the Israeli Army’s war in the Gaza Strip.

The clearest shot for the ‘Yellow Submarine’ during the first half came from the Chilean Ben Brereton Díaz, who scored a low shot well inside the area during the 20th minute; but the play was finally invalidated due to offside by his teammate Álex Baena.

With no shots on goal from the Israeli team in the first act, the locals did approach the goal defended by Sharif Kaiuf without a reward. The passing of the minutes was combined with the inability of Marcelino García Toral’s pupils to take advantage of his dominance, which spurred his rival.

Frantzdy Pierrot put yellow goalkeeper Pepe Reina in trouble in the 52nd minute, although there was also a previous offside. Pierrot himself sent a good visitor opportunity to limbo in the 71st minute and Maor Kandil worried the Estadio de la Cerámica in the final stretch with another hard shot, which Reina also countered.

This tie placed Villarreal with 10 points, in second position in Group F where Stade Rennais leads with 12. During the sixth and final matchday, scheduled for December 14 (6:45 p.m.), the ‘Yellow Submarine’ will be played precisely in Rennes their chances of finishing in first place and directly reaching the round of 16.
