It was a nice day in Spain, blue skies and people seemed content with life. Just trying to fill up words for what proveed a very dry game. Villarreal took on the relegation battling Huesca in a game you would have expected the Yellows to win. To sum up the first corner came in the 41st minute and only 1 recorded shot on goal in the first half.

Huesca started out the more lively with Villarreal Loanee Ontiveros shinning on the left hand side for Huesca. 16th minute Maffeo had his first chance with a very soft overhead kick that did not test Asenjo

Villarreal registered attacks but no chances were even close to the goal. Carlos Bacca’s only real impact on the game came in the 42nd minute. Parejo with a pass through to the left hand side. Bacca with a clever rabona hit post but was then declared offside.

Second half it started raining and people weren’t so content.

Overall the match was hardly a game for the neutral to enjoy. Both managers seemed to content to park the bus. Most professional opinions concluded that neither buses actually arrived.

Moi Gomez had arguably the best and only chance of the game. 51 minutes after a neat little dribble, Parejo found Pedraza storming down the left hand side. The Lb cut the ball across the Box. Bacca left the ball for Moi to power a shot which was brilliantly saved by the Huesca Keeper.

The game did liven up in the final 10 minutes. Villarreal switched to a 442 with 2 strikers up top in Fer Nino and Alcacer. Despite no goal chances this did liven up what was a very dry game. These are the sides that Villarreal should be beating and fans will hope for a better performance against rivals Real Sociedad.
