We placed a bet with Titan Bet on there being over 2.5 goals in the match between Villarreal and Celta Vigo, and we lost the bet as the match ended with a 2-0 win in favour of the visitors.
Villarreal were dominating the game, yet they lacked finishing moves to actually score. They were the most dangerous side throughout the first half, but their most dangerous shot, which came from Bruno, barely grazed Celta’s post. Celta should get an honourable mention for the might with which they resisted the attacks, and Luis Enrique decided not to risk the potential three points introducing Inigo Martinez from the bench.
After Celta started to break the holds of whatever style of play Villarreal tried to impose on them, more chances to score started to follow. Bruno should have scored for Villarreal, but fortunately for the visitors his header was way off the target. Alex Lopez executed a free kick, and Orellana capitalized on it in the far corner of Villareal’s post.
The match was suspended shortly afterwards because a tear gas canister was thrown onto the pitch, and chaos ensued. The referee suspended the match for several minutes, and fans were asked to leave the stadium, it was later proven that the tear gas device is the same the police use to disperse the crowds and at the moment they are trying to identify the culprit.
After nearly 30 minutes of no play, the referee allowed the players to come back on the pitch, determining it was safe also for the fans and the match resumed from the 87th minute. Villareal tried to push for the equalizer, yet it was Celta’s Nolito who pierced the net on the 90th minute, thus putting all questions about the winner to rest.
Result: -7 units, bet lost
