Pacheta achieved his first point at the head of Sociedad Deportiva Huesca thanks to a hard-working draw against Villarreal. Those of Emery could not with the wall that the Huesca have built in just over ten days and only in the second half did they find a small fissure in the Huesca rear that Moi Gómez was close to marking, with the clearest occasion of the match. A distribution of points between the two teams that tie the most in the category.
Huesca handcuffed Villarreal offering a new defensive solvency. The defense of five and the intense work of the rest of the Alto-Aragonese team became an insurmountable barrier for Emery’s men. The only dangerous action of the entire first half was in a play in which Villarreal caught the back of the Barça defense and Bacca tried to beat Álvaro, but his shot collided with the post. An action invalidated by the Colombian’s offside, showing that the Huesca could not concede him anything.
The Huescans stretched and the yellows found gaps, especially Moi Gómez, who found himself in one against a ball in the penalty spot that Pedraza gave him, and his shot could be repelled by Álvaro Fernández, with a key intervention. The ex of the Huesca did not have time to think when it received inside the area and the international goal of the Huesca was very attentive. The locals reacted with a personal action by Ontiveros, who ended up cutting off Asenjo, in the only shot at the goal of the locals.
With the passing of the minutes, the yellow submarine was forced to win in the bottom field and with the changes Emery he went for the game and both Yeremi and Alcácer gave the people of Castellón more depth. The visiting coach wanted to give wings to his team, putting Niño by Funes Mori, but the attempt to seek victory came late and that meant a new tie for the accounts of the two teams, which keep Huesca at the bottom and in the fight for Europe to Villarreal, who have not yet lost in 2021.
Emery: “We missed something upstairs”
“I am happy with how the team has been, although we have lacked something up. It is another step in the growth of the team. Ties add up to victories. They have played a very serious game. I am happy with the work. Being among the First four is a very ambitious goal. We have to improve in certain things. There have been positive things, because they have not generated much. We have created fewer clear chances than we wanted. With three games a week it is normal that we have more injuries. We have We have to adapt. We have been reliable and solid with three center-backs. Huesca have not had clear chances. With this squad I have resources, although the club is looking for a player for the right wing and we have the door open until the last day. “
Pacheta: “When you can’t win, tie”
“When you can’t win, tie. We are on a very good path and I see many green shoots. We have to be better with the ball, although we do not have to forget what we have in front of us. They are better than us, but we have stood up to them and we have gone go for them. If you are not focused as we have been today, they will put you four. If we compete at this level, many games will fall on our side. We have to keep growing and with a victory this team will take a step forward. The team has had tremendous concentration. They are steamrollers and it is very difficult to beat them. I have good feelings. Six casualties are many and on top of important players.
