Villarreal came back from Betis twice


Villarreal gets important victory from Benito Villamarín (2-3) which keeps them few options to fight for the last places in Europe after twice overcoming adverse scores, as Betis made 1-0 and 2-1 and also has 3-2 in their bota, who could have scored an ill-advised Fekir moments before Sorloth sealed the match by completing a great counterattack launched by Gerard Moreno, which was a nightmare for Betis.

[+] Watch the match summary:

Real Betis and Villarreal were almost one hundred percent effective in the first half, where they scored goals, two for Betis and one for Castellón, the only three clear chances that were created. Guido made it 1-0 on the stroke of half time after a lateral foul was cleared back by a visiting defender, William Carvalho sent the ball back into the center of the area, where the Argentine tapped it in to give his team the lead and lead Villamarín to sing again as Guido stayed !

The Betic advantage lasted almost ten minutes, which Alex Baena took to level the contest after a great personal action by Gerard Moreno, who went to his will from Chadi Riad’s marking and served a goal pass to Sorloth who then gave it to Baena to score into an empty goal. The action was reviewed by VAR, but Fornals ruled out any possibility of offside, so the score rose to 1-1 and due to the delay and several stoppages that occurred, four minutes were deducted.

In extra time it became 2-1, the work of Willian José after finishing a rushing cross from Fornals, who came within millimeters of a great pass from William Carvalho to assist his teammates. The visiting players said that the ball crossed the baseline before the crossing of Fornals, an action that was not seen by the linesman due to the late arrival or by the VAR cameras, which are not yet ready to solve this type of game, so the 2 -1 also went up on the scoreboard.

Betis had the advantage at half-time, but it only lasted a few minutes after the restart. the time it took Sokratis to make it 2-2 with his own goal when trying to clear a closed cross from Traoré. Betis worked hard to find 3-2, leaving plenty of space for Marcelino’s team to attack quickly, with goalkeeper Jorgensen saving twice from Betis’ third goal, when he first stopped a long shot from Chimy and then another at Fekir’s point blank range. In the same game came Villarreal’s deadly counter attack and From a possible 3-2 it became 2-3the work of Sorloth, who was no longer moving.
