The Reserves deserved more vs Alcoyano in a match marked by controversial refereeing (0-1)

Unfair. The Villarreal B team’s winning streak came to an end after their narrow defeat to CD Alcoyano in a game marked, inevitably, by the referee’s performance. The Catalonian referee, Barceló Roca, did not give a clear penalty on Aitor Cantalapiedra in the 49th minute that would have changed the game completely, as at that point the score was 0-0.

The Mini Submarine had some clear goal scoring opportunities to score and take away a point at the least, although they deserved all three. The Yellows best chance of the game was, without a doubt, at the command of the left boot of Cantalapiedra, who tried to chip the ball over the rival goalkeeper, after a counterattack started by Carlos Martínez. 

The only goal of the game came in the 77th minute, when Mariano headed the ball home from a cross swung in from the right wing.

The Villarreal B team’s next rival will be Atlético Baleares, who will be visited by the Yellows Reserves on Sunday 11th December at 12pm CET.
