Miguel Álvarez analyses the B team clash against Real Madrid Castilla Sunday, 12pm CEST

Villarreal B face Real Madrid Castilla at the Mini Estadi this Sunday afternoon at 12 noon. The coach of the B team, Miguel Álvarez, spoke at the press conference ahead of the clash. These are the highlights of the statements made by the coach from Jaén:

Positive dynamic

“Any result doesn’t get us out of the way, but when we win, everything is more manageable. On top of that, we’re playing our second game in a row at home and against such a strong opponent, so we’re looking forward to Sunday as soon as possible.”

A full house at the Mini

“The best way to get the fans to come is what the boys are doing. Whoever comes already knows that they will enjoy it. At home, we are a team that does things for the fans to enjoy. At this level, the mass of fans who come always carry us in their arms. The boys deserve to have people come to watch them because of the way they play and their attitude on the pitch.”

Final stretch to achieve the objectives

“It’s coming to the end. You can’t afford to slip up because there’s no way back. We have tremendous enthusiasm. The lads are doing a phenomenal job and, with four games left, we don’t want to drop out of the promotion places. We’re on the right track.”

The opponent

“Real Madrid Castilla have a lot of quality in midfield. They are a very high-scoring team and they have some outstanding one-on-one players. All teams are demanding in this final stretch, but in this game, their individual quality is going to be the most demanding. In the first leg, they brought us down to earth and made us realise that at this level you always have to be at your best. The boys are aware of what they have to offer in every game. We’re going in to the game very aware, but if we’re at our level, we’re a difficult team to beat.”
