Musacchio warns of the difficulty of the upcoming match vs Alavés (Monday, 8:45pm)

In today’s press conference, Villarreal CF’s Argentinean centre back, Mateo Musacchio, emphasized Alavés’ “great level”, the Submarine’s upcoming opponent in the LaLiga Santander (Monday, 8:45pm CET). “They’re a compact side who know how they want to play. They’re effective and they get results”, Musacchio recognized. In addition, the Yellows number 5 is “happy” about the Submarine’s current form: “We’re doing really well and are in the zone we said we wanted to be in at the start of the season. There are still many points to play for at big grounds, therefore it’s key for us to prolong this good form”.

On the other hand, the Yellows defender highlighted Villarreal’s “solid defence” as the key to the Submarine’s current good form, still the least scored on team in the LaLiga Santander along with Atlético de Madrid (24). “Teams score few goals past us, we’re a hardworking team defensively and this helps us to pick up good results. We have to keep going like this”, he concluded.
