The B team had countless chances to take all three points

A lack of goals. Villarreal B forgave Cornellà away from home and only earned a point despite having countless chances to score.

The first big chance fell to the Catalan side. It didn’t end in a goal because Dani Tasende made a superb goal line clearance when the ball was on its way in (m. 9).

The B team responded soon after. In the 18th minute, Jackson received a long pass and attempted to lob Lucas. The ball went narrowly wide.

Villarreal B gradually took control of the game. They had clear chances to open the scoring. First, with a free kick by Lozano that went wide. Later, with a double chance for Jackson, who failed to take advantage of a cross from the left by Tasende, and finally, Lucas made a great save from Arana’s effort.

In the second half, the script was the same. Villarreal B had the clearest chances, although without success. Jackson, twice, and Arana had the goal in his hands. Despite this, the initial scoreline remained unchanged.

Villarreal B’s next game will be at the Mini Estadi against Atlético Baleares, Sunday, 12pm CEST.
