Highlights: Malaga 2-0 Villarreal, Villarreal B 3-1 Irun

New, comments

Not sure you can call these "highlights." Unfortunately, we learned that: (1) Angel Lopez is not very good (the proximate cause of the first goal, in my opinion); and (2) throwing on all of your attacking options at once does not create chances. Rossi, in his short time on the pitch, was the best we had, but that's not saying much.

I had hoped this sort of performance was dead and buried with Valverde, but I think it's clear by now that the players are not up to snuff. A great chance wasted to catch the fading teams above us. Game recaps from the club website, Marca, and AS.

And the B team continues its magical run in the Segunda. After Real Union saw 2 red cards in short order to start the 2nd half, Villarreal B scored 3 times in 15 minutes. Montero had a goal and an assist, and Marco Ruben now is tied for the pichichi with 12 goals. Game recaps from the club website and Marca.
