Muriel shoots against the post from outside the box and the rebound hits Toloi's thigh and agonisingly goes wide of the target.

GOAL FOR ATALANTA! It couldn't happen, could it? Zapata is played through on goal by Ilicic and he dinks the ball over the goalkeeper and it rolls just over the line.
79'
Moreno shoots from the edge of the box but the Atalanta keeper saves comfortably.
74'
A cross high in the air sees Toloi put the keeper and the ball into the net. It would have been a great goal in the 1950s. Nat Lofthouse is smiling somewhere.
73'
Toloi threads a ball through to Frueler in the box but he fails to control the ball.

GOAL FOR ATALANTA! Why wasn't he on from the start? Malinovsky fires home from the edge of the box to get his side back into the game. Kind of...just another three required.
64'
The game is now being played in the Villareal half as they understandably see the job having been down.
58'
Off the bar! A fantastic free kick from the left edge of the penalty area from Malinovsky but it deflects off the outside of the upright. The keeper would have stood no chance.
57'

Moreno goes into the book for a foul on Ilicic.

De Roon comes on for Muriel.
53'
Zapata is played through on goal and though the linesman raised his flag it would have stood had Rulli not diverted it wide with his leg.

GOAL FOR VILLARREAL! Moreno beats Palomino with a nutmeg and then crosses for Danjuma who turns and puts the ball in the net as Musso dives the wrong way.
50'
Zapata attacks down the left and is angry not to be given a corner.

Villareal have total control of this match. Atalanta have had their chances but there is no way you can see them scoring three in the second half.
