The presence of Madrid required an elegant protocol. Unai Emery dressed in a suit and tie in front of the Zidane boys. To date, the Hondarribia coach was on the bench wearing a tracksuit that allowed him to gesture comfortably. The American did not change the habit or the hyperactive character of the Basque coach in the band, which contrasted with the phlegmatic Zizou. PP Emery has fallen on his feet in La Cerámica . The alleged aspiration of the owner Roig has always been that the team is competitive, with a taste for the game and in which the quarry has a place, a cornerstone for the entity to be sustainable. And Emery is making Villarreal recognizable for his style and with a large presence of home players, such as Trigueros, Moi Gómez, Pedraza, captain Mario and internationals Gerard Moreno and Pau Torres, born in Vila-real. The six started against Madrid . In the second half, Yeremi Pino and Chukwueze joined and were protagonists in the yellow improvement.

It was not the expected start for Villarreal. Just reached the second minute, Madrid was ahead on the scoreboard through Mariano in a controversial action. Carvajal attempted a pass with Lucas Vázquez as the recipient. The ball, intercepted by Pedraza, did not reach the Galician, who seemed to be in an offside position, as the linesman made it known, who raised the flag as quickly as he lowered it. Hernández Hernández let the play continue, which several yellow players ignored. And that ended in Madrid's goal in the face of protests from the locals.
Villarreal's response was tepid, with a correct display and without spice. Until the end of the first act the game fell into indefiniteness, both teams alternating possession without barely looking into the Asenjo and Courtois areas, with a lot of work with their feet to start the game and without using the Palencian or the Belgian hands , without a shot between the three clubs to discount in the first 45 minutes except Mariano's shot at the start that put Madrid ahead.
Everything changed in the second 45 minutes. Villarreal took a step forward. But to Emery it seemed insufficient and introduced dynamism and overflow with the entry of Estupiñán, Chukwueze and Yeremi Pino. The latter, at 18 years old, is the last jewel of the yellow quarry, Canarian talent. Eight players from the house played against Madrid and two of them were the protagonists in the tie. Chukwueze was the subject of a penalty that was transformed by Gerard Moreno. “In the second half we took a step forward and we were able to take the victory. The point is meritorious. We continue on the same line ”, the Catalan forward commented at the end, who added five goals.
