Villarreal is still alive in his battle for the Europa League! Huge win for Emery’s men with a massive 1-5 score that practically built in the first half. Goals from Pedraza, Foyth, Paco Alcácer and Pau Torres in the first 45 minutes allowed Villarreal to calm down the restart by dodging Rayo’s arrival and annoyed Dimitrievski by shooting from medium range, source found by Pedraza in 88 to take the win to close.

It is necessary to emphasize the strategy that played in Villarreal’s favor today: three of the five goals of the ‘Yellow Submarine’ were born from set pieces. Rayo, already rescued, failed to improve their image after the break.
The result achieved in Vallecas keeps Villarreal three points from last place in the Europa League, currently occupied by Real Sociedad. Emery’s men have a real sixth-place final next Sunday, when they receive team ‘txuri-urdin’ to look for another victory that will enable them to reach the final day in European positions.
