ANDl Villarreal achieved his first win of the season against Elche who stood up to the 2-1 of Trigueros at the end of the first part. I know thathe left the green-franj painting that before the action of the Talavera midfielder’s goal, it should have been Alfonso Pedraza sent off for a second yellow. But the goal went up to the scoreboard and the submarine celebrated its first triumph in a course in which he was showing a good image, but had not had the reward of victory. These three points place Emery’s team in the temperate zone of the table with seven points and one game less (postponed against Alavés).
Until now, Villarreal had drawn against Chelsea (1-1) in the final of the European Super Cup, Atalanta (2-2) in the Champions and front Granada (0-0), Espanyol (1-1), Atlético (2-2) and Mallorca (0-0), in addition to the aforementioned postponed match against Alavés. The sensations of the submarine were not bad, but it needed to finish off with a victory that came in the Sixth matchday against Elche.
Alcácer was a starter for the first time at Villarreal this season and, although he could not score, he restored Emery’s confidence with a great game in attack. He gave two goal assists – to Yeremi Pino and Danjuma- and caused the Trigueros goal: he squeezed Enzo Roco under pressure, until he managed to steal the ball. He opened Pino and he assisted Trigueros who came from behind.
After the game, the Torrent forward showed happy for the victory of the team and for his return to a starting eleven: “Every game we try to go out and win. There have been several games in which in the last minutes they have tied us and deprived us of victory. The team was very good today, very respectful of the rival. Am glad to be able to help to the team with whatever, scoring goals or giving assists or causing chances by stealing balls. I’m very excited, last year I was playing and I got injured and I no longer recovered to return to the team, “he said in Movistar La Liga, after the match.
