Incidents: Friendly match played at the Pinatar Arena (San Pedro del Pinatar).
Villarreal CF and Olympique de Lyon played a serious preseason friendly, in which they tied at two goals, and in which both teams showed a good level of play.
The Spanish put more than their share to win the game, but the lack of success at the top and some imbalance in defense, prevented it.
Both teams played a first half in which they showed their punch and quality in their attacks, scoring two goals each, but also evidenced that they must improve their defenses, since the two were somewhat misaligned in that plot.
The people of Castellón came out wanting to control and dominate the game, something they did more and better than their rival, arriving with danger on the left wing, in which Iosifov and Pedraza stood out; to which was added the good work in attack of the debutant Dia.
Despite receiving a goal from Lucas after seven minutes, Emery’s men continued to control and easily reaching the area of the French.
At twenty-two minutes Moi Gómez tied with a good shot from the edge of the area, thanks to a great play by Alfonso Pedraza. The match was controlled by the yellows, but Olympique de Lyon was very dangerous against them, with a good Ekambi and a stellar Aouar.
The Villarreal He made the most of his dominance with a goal from Dia, who took advantage of a good center from Peña to overtake his team. A first half that ends with another against Ekambi and a goal from Aouar, which put the tie at two on the scoreboard.
The second part started like the first, in which both teams generated danger and had goal options. But it was again the yellows, who handled the weight and the rhythm of the game more and better, arriving with danger from the hand of Fer Niño and Hassan; while the French lived thanks to the cons of Dembélé and Ekambi, who were trying to take advantage of the few options left by Emery’s.
If the people of Castellón did not take the game, it was for the lack of success in the last meters, since by game and arrivals they deserved much more against a good Olympique Lyon, who kept their starting team almost throughout the game.
