The B team return to winning ways after beating Linense with goals from Lozano and Iker Goujón

Villarreal B returned to winning ways at the best possible time. The Mini Submarine beat Linense 1-2 in a match where they had to overturn the opening Gerard Oliva striker. The Yellows’ goals came from Sergio Lozano ( from the penalty spot) and from Iker Goujón. The result means that Miguel Álvarez’s side are temporarily top of the league, depending on Atlético Baleares’ result, as they play later.

Two teams at the top of the table faced each other, so it was guaranteed to be a good game. The match was also affected by the rain.

Sergio Lozano returned after his injury to go straight into Miguel Álvarez’s starting XI. The Yellows No.21 played on the left side of the midfield three, and made it 1-1 from the penalty spot.

The opening goal came nearly at the half-hour mark. Gerard Oliva’s acrobatic effort from a cross from the left beat Iker Álvarez (1-0, m.28).

In the second half, the B team were determined to get the equaliser. They got it after they were awarded a penalti when Nacho Miras brought down Juan Carlos Arana. The Linense goalkeeper saw a straight red too (1-1, m.59).

With an extra man on the pitch, Villarreal B started to dominate more. Miguel Álvarez looked to the bench, bringing on Diego Collado and Iker Goujón to strengthen the attack.

It was Goujón who scored the decisive 1-2 goal. Migue Leal got free down the right, played a low cross into the box, and the forward appeared to send it into the back of the net (m. 76).

Late on, Linense ended the match with nine players. Víctor Mena also saw a red card after a heavy challenge on Goujón (m.94).

Next up for Villarreal B is against Barcelona B at the Mini Estadi at the Villarreal CF Training Ground (Ciudad Deportiva) on Sunday (5pm CET).
