In the first game of the Europa League quarter-finals, DINAMO lost to Villarreal 1-0 in Maksimir’s Villarreal team. The scorer was Moreno from the penalty spot in the 43rd minute.
Dynamo was in big trouble before the game. Damir Krznar can’t count on the first two offensive options. Bruno Petković and Mario Gavranović were injured, and Krznar put Atim Wen into the first team.
Dynamo is not afraid of distinguished guests. In addition, the Blues showed in the first 45 minutes that they were equal opponents and even had more dangerous opportunities. As expected, Dynamo left the property to its guests, waiting for the counter and half-counter opportunities.
The guest was the first to threaten through Pedraza, and Lidraković defended his shot from ten meters away. Dynamo responded through Lovro Majer and goalkeeper Rulli’s shot barely made a corner kick. After that interception, it was dangerous in front of the visitor’s target, but Villarreal somehow managed to save himself.
In the 20th minute, the best opportunity for guests. Barca and Moreno strengthened their defenses, Pedaz cleverly used the defense in front of Livakovic, but the Dynamo goalkeeper blocked his corner kick brilliantly and defended a clear opportunity.
Dynamo scored in the 28th minute, but due to Atim Wen’s defender at the start of the game, the goal was reasonably cancelled. Orsic withdrew the counter and added someone to Atiemwen, who crashed into Rulli from 16 meters. Olsic ran to the ball and scored with a header. However, in the first level, the Dynamo forward was the first to reach the visitor goalkeeper.
Dynamo was more dangerous at the end of the second half, but then in the 42nd minute, Theophile made a big mistake. Moreno was close to the goal line and tried to score, but hit the Frenchman at Dinamo. After checking the VAR, the German judge Siebert pointed out the white spots. Moreno passed the ball to one side, and Livakovic passed to the other side.
Dynamo then tried to balance and embarked on concrete and ambitious actions. First of all, Ristovsky did a good job except until the end of the game. Then in the 56th minute, Joško Gvardiol shot a brilliant shot from 18 meters and forced Lu to use Parade to defend your shot.
In the 60th minute, Damir Krznar had to give everything. He eliminated Atiemwen and Jakić from the game and introduced Petković and Kastrati who were under-recovered. In the 65th minute, Dynamo’s defense fell asleep, Moreno knocked down Alcacer who appeared in front of Livakovic, but his shot was close to the goal.
By the end of the game, the Spaniard had calmed down the game routinely and professionally, slowed down, controlled the game, and maintained a great advantage for the return game, which will be played within 7 days.
