Villarreal Back In Business
Villarreal came into tonight’s home game at the El Madrigal stadium on the back of two disappointing results for them the first was an home defeat to a very good Deportivo side which shocked many Villarreal fans at the poor performance of there team during this game. Next was the 2-2 draw at home in the champions cup on the Friday against English giants Manchester United which many at Villarreal thought that they should of won as they had controlled the pace and play off the game throughout the match. Malaga was tonight’s visitors to take on the task of playing Villarreal and there was a surprise for all when Robert Pires was named in the starting lineup for the match. Before the game in his pre match interview Thomas Ince said "I am looking forward to tonight’s game I decided to recall Pires as we much needed his experience and his knowledge of how to play the right pass at the right time for our team tonight."
At 20:00pm the game kicked off and Villarreal were immediately on the attack with Ibagaza hitting the crossbar on just the 5th minute and it was that man who created the first goal just 4 minutes later on when after a nice pass to Rossi who’s wicked shot took a cruel deflection off Welington and looped over the keepers head into the top hand corner of the goal. There was joy around the stadium as it looked like Villarreal were back to there usual free flowing selves.
However that confidence was gone just two minutes later when Eliseu capitalized on a mistake by the experienced left back Capdevila to side foot the ball home into the net there was anger around the stadium directed at Capdevila as many off the crowd thought he should of knew better then attempt that ridiculous backpass.
However that anger was turned two joy on the 13th minute when the very impressive Ibagaza darted past two defenders and drove the ball into the roof of the net this got the crowd going again and the "Ibagaza Ibagaza Ibagaza" chants were roaring round the ground the first player to celebrate the goal was Capdevila who looked hugely relieved that his earlier mistake didn’t seem to be too costly at this moment of time."
The scored stayed 2-1 into the second half when Villarreal made a triple substitution with Fernandez Franco, Javi Venta coming on for Ibagaza Cygan and Pires this was to prove vital in the 3rd Villarreal goal which came only two minutes later as Franco’s headed was saved and put behind for a corner which Fernandez went across to take which was beautifully swung into the box right onto the head of Rossi who thundered the ball into the top of the net past the stranded keeper.
And the game was over on the 72nd minute when man of the match Nihat struck with fury from the edge of the area with a crisp shot which flew into the bottom corner of the goal leaving the keeper no chance this special goal was a great way to round of sound a good team performance. After the game Thomas Ince said "I am truly delighted with my teams performance today i was very pleased with the way they took there chance and the quickness of the passing if we can continue with this we are guaranteed to do well with our team this season.
