Villarreal B came away from La Nucía with a hard-fought point in a match affected by heavy wind at the Olímpic Camino Cano stadium. All of the chances in the first half fell to the Yellows. With eight minutes gone, Dani Villa shot across goal, but Óscar Fornés managed to keep it out. The Mini Submarine's No.11 had the ball in the back of the net in the 31st minute, but his goal was disallowed for offside. Villa had reacted first to a rebound after a spectacular Sergio Lozano effort.
The Yellows, with the wind in their favour in the first half, carried on trying. The last good chance of the first half fell to Ramón Bueno, whose shot was deflected clear after a low cross from the right from Andrei Ratiu.
The second half was still dominated by Villarreal B, despite the wind going against them. It was much harder to get close to the La Nucía goal though.
Next up is a game against UE Olot (Saturday 6pm CET, Mini Estadi).
