Two headed goals from Álex Millan give the Mini Submarine the victory against the Scorpions

Villarreal B overcome Orihuela CF at the Mini Estadi (2-0). The Yellows showed their quality and punished the side from Alicante through Álex Millán, who was the man of the match after scoring two headers in a great team performance by the Mini Submarine.

Miguel Álvarez’s side’s first half was impressive. They showed rhythm, intensity and had chances. The goal came early on. With less than ten minutes on the clock, Millán showed his goalscoring instinct to put the Yellows ahead, using his head to send the ball into the back of the net after an inch-perfect Dani Tasende cross.

Only a minute later, Víctor Narro sent the ball onto the post after a great counter attack. Villarreal B were dominating, and at half-time, the Yellows went in without Filip Jorgensen being under too much trouble in goal.

At the start of the second half, Villarreal B got a numerical advantage when Orihuela were left with ten men. From then, Villarreal B took a step forward and punished their opposition. Only five minutes after the sending off, Millán headed a great cross into the back of the net. He showed with his brace just how in form he is at the moment.

Villarreal B’s win sees them move into third in the Segunda División Group 3B table with 13 points.
