[Narration and statistics]

The victory gives peace of mind to a Valencia manages its distance with the relegation places as if it were an accordion due to its inability to remain regular: from the humiliation in

Getafe he

went to a match with intensity against a timid Villarreal who failed to shore up his advantage and who has three consecutive defeats.

The game turned their heads with a very controversial play.

So much so that the International Board (IFAB) has decided that as of July involuntary hands will not be whistled.



the decision comes late.

Hours after the agreement, the cross came out on this coin in the air.

In a jump to avoid the shot of

Gerard Moreno

It is the hit on the back that moves the ball, not the brush with the arm.

. And then the VAR warned of the penalty.

The emotional blow made Villarreal take command and go to the locker room with another shot from Moi that Cillessen saved.

The lashes of Emery's men put the Dutch goalkeeper's attention to the test at different times during the game.

Emery was not clear about the first part of his team and returned to the pitch without Estupiñán and without Alcácer, who suffered from his discomfort.

But they were still not comfortable.
