CD Tenerife chewed up by Villareal beast

It’s cat kicking time at Kirby Towers after a hefty 5-0 away loss to Villareal, one of the teams below CDT in La Liga. Tenerife played well in the first half and had much more possesion but poor finishing was again their downfall.

Tenerife coach Oltra described Champions League regulars Villareal as slumbering beasts, sadly for Tenerife they chose today to wake up. Llorente was nearly on the score sheet after 5 minutes, thankfully Aragonoses was more alert than his defence and foiled him. Nino had a good chance just after but skied it over the goal, Llorente showed him how to do it, slipping through CDT’s slack centre backs Sicila and Martinez to make it 1-0.

Alfaro put Omar through in front of goal but the young striker couldn’t quite control the ball to convert it, Nino (pic) had another clear chance and hit it straight at the keeper, and Omar hit the post. Llorente showed he was human, failing to score after a slip by Sicilia, and trailing 1-0 at half time, Tenerife were still hopeful. Villareal came out after the break fired up, Pires latched onto a great long pass to make it 2-0, then a double whammy knocked the stuffing out of the visitors. Former Man Utd forward Rossi finished off a great move to add a third and barely a minute later, Llorente showed his class, beating Martinez, chipping the ball over Aragonoses, and running on to head it in the net.

Tenerife kept going, Nino showed a flash of last seasons form, beating 2 players and curling in a shot that just missed the goal. Villareal had the last word, a break down the left ended with Cani making it 5-0 with his second touch. Next Saturday at home it’s bottom placed Malaga and another must win game.
