The Mini Submarine win in Oviedo thanks to a Fer Niño goal

Three very important points for Villarreal B! The Mini Submarine beat Real Oviedo (0-1) at the Nuevo Carlos Tartiere thanks to Fer Niño’s goal in the early stages of the match, getting the victory against a direct rival with whom they were tied on points in the table.

The game was soon in the Yellow Submarine’s favour. In the eighth minute, Fer Niño finished off a splendid cross from the left to beat Braat and put the Mini Submarine ahead. However, the first half was not an easy one for Miguel Álvarez’s side, who dominated the game by keeping possession of the ball, but Real Oviedo played their cards right and had a couple of good chances. Iker Álvarez was very good when he was needed.

In the opening minutes of the second half, Villarreal B were able to keep the tempo of the game down and defend with the ball to prevent the home side from creating chances as the players warmed up again on this cold afternoon in Oviedo. After the first quarter of an hour, the home side began to have more possession, but the Yellows defended well in a low block.

So well did they do their job of minimising Real Oviedo’s attacking virtues that the three points went back to Vila-real in a very good game against a direct rival and on a very difficult pitch.

The Mini Submarine’s next match will take place at La Cerámica on Sunday 5th February at 2pm CET against Granada CF.
