Villarreal’s Alevín A have beaten RC Celta on penalties to stay alive in the prestigious U12s tournament

The Submarine’s U12s have qualified for the quarter-finals of LaLiga Promises! Iván Molés and Hodei Jiménez’s team won on penalties (3-1) against RC Celta de Vigo’s Canteira Celeste after finishing 0-0 in normal time.

The match started with a lot of intensity and with chances for both teams, although the clearest chances came from the ‘groguets’. After a first half of tentative play, the game went into the break with a goalless draw.

The second half was all yellow again. Villarreal once again had the best chances, but the goal was not forthcoming despite a number of chances from the Yellows. In the end, Villarreal secured their place in the quarter-finals from the penalty spot, thanks to goals from ‘Grego’, Héctor and Miguel (3-1).

The Yellows’ Academy side will face RCD Espanyol, who beat Athletic Club in the last 16, this evening (7pm CEST) for a place in the semi-finals. The rest of the quarter-final matches are: Valencia-Atlético, Granada-Betis and Sevilla-Barça.
