Villarreal mentor Marcelino was satisfied with his group’s execution in a 2-1 win against Sparta Prague in the primary leg of their Europa League quarter-last on Thursday.

Marcelino was “to a great degree fulfilled” after a Cedric Bakambu prop gave his side a thin triumph to take into one week from now’s arrival leg, despite the fact that Jakub Brabec’s away objective could be vital.

The Spaniard refered to the various risks his side made, with Sparta goalkeeper David Bicik making a string of fabulous spares to offer some kind of reparation for the misstep that gave Bakambu an early opener.

“Today I believe that we have done everything ideal for less [goals than we could have scored], however we are to a great degree fulfilled by the amusement,” Marcelino said after the match.

“Most likely we expect a hard amusement one week from now, however we won’t run there with any dread.

“We’ve had 27 shots, 12 clear risks. The outcome is close however we are extremely satisfied with the play of the group.

“To get past the round we need to play well one week from now in Prague, as we have done today.”
