This is how the rojiblancos have played against Villarreal:
THE BEST LION, MUNIAIN
Once again, Athletic’s best moments coincided with the Navarrese’s entry into action.
UNAI SIMÓN, Smoothie
He hardly had to intervene, but he conceded somewhat. Quiet night.
It started from the side and finished from the inside. He tried from start to finish with uneven luck.
He had a bad start, especially at the passing level; but it improved a lot with the passing of the minutes.
IÑIGO MARTÍNEZ, Rocky
It was also firm and consistent, with some initial gaps. He did not give rivals a choice.
He knew how to cover his band and did not tire of raising it throughout the night. Good partnership with Muniain.
He was not very inspired at the game level, but he scored and was about to score another goal.
UNAI LÓPEZ, Intermittent
He appeared and disappeared from the Athletic game at times. It was difficult for him to get into the game.
DANI GARCÍA, Released
Nice work in the wide zone. He helped a lot in the recovery of the ball and appeared in offensive positions.
RAÚL GARCÍA, Battler
The Navarrese was well controlled, but did not stop trying or looking for position to get in contact with the ball.
It was not easy for him with the two Villarreal towers, but he made them work with their movements. I try.
He helped effectively in the last minutes to close the right wing.
He entered the game very late and barely had time to demonstrate things.
. coach was faithful to his proposal from start to finish. This time he only made two changes, something that took its toll on his weary team in the final minutes.
