After Villarreal beat him in both games, Dinamo was suspended in the quarterfinals of the Europa League. It is 1: 0 in Maksimir Stadium and 2: 1 in Spain. Villarreal coach Unai Emery said after yesterday’s victory that his team showed the best game and stopped Dynamo through aggressive offense.
“We performed well and showed our best game in the form of individuals and teams. We respect Dynamo seriously and this is our game. We realize that Dynamo is a dynamic and talented team, So we didn’t guess how the game was going, but we chose to join and win again.” Emery said at a press conference after the game.
After winning 1-0 in the first game of the quarter-finals, Villarreal also won 2:1 at home and advanced to the semi-finals of the European League.
“The initial idea was to wait patiently and keep suspending Dynamo’s games. So we actively squeezed them and we tried to ban their games. We are very serious.” Emery said. His team led 2-0 in the first 45 minutes of the game.
“We kept the same route in the second half, we played the same way to prevent them from coming back. Indeed, they had a chance to score in the 50th minute (Meyer). Dynamo had more opportunities of his own, but we There are them too. “We knew they had turbulent experience, but we didn’t let them realize. “He says.
Emery will face the London club Arsenal, where he used to work in London, in the semifinals, before coming to Villarreal. On the other hand, the Spaniard will try to pass this step after reaching the European semifinals four times so far.
“We now have a chance to cross the semi-final barrier against Arsenal. It will be difficult. We are waiting for it as something unique. I will try my best to break this barrier, which is why we maximize our training. Unfortunately, the audience will not see us.” Emery was the one who won the Europa League with Sevilla from 2014 to 2016.
Arsenal defeated Villarreal in the 2006 UEFA Champions League semi-finals with a 1-0 home victory and a 0-0 away victory.
