P Few players are as visible and capital for a team as Gerard Moreno , tireless worker who gives continuity and meaning to the game, assistant and scorer, Villarreal's winning ace, actor head of Emery's ensemble. Dinamo, both in Kiev and in Vila-real, surrendered to Gerard Moreno, author this Thursday of the two goals against the Ukrainian team, who at no time discussed the move to the quarterfinals of Villarreal.
The experience in football and in Mircea Lucescu's benches provide you with authority in your opinions. And for the good of the Romanian coach, as he pointed out in the previous one, the fortune of Villarreal is immense for having a top player like Gerard Moreno, without understanding the Romanian coach that the international striker was not in a European club with more heraldry. Lucescu's appreciation uncovered nothing new; it was ratified by Gerard Moreno on the field of play. With his two goals he gave color and meaning to Villarreal's choral game, whose best version appears in Europe.

With the advantage acquired in Kiev, Villarreal decided to manage the tie at La Cerámica, always through the ball in the hands of Emery's team from the opening whistle. With pause and without haste, the yellows dominated the tempo of the game, circulating the ball with the astonishing tranquility of Parejo and the sweet foot of Trigueros, without taking hardly any risks. Arguments that hypnotized the troops of Dynamo Kiev , who in nothing, without realizing it, saw themselves with a goal against. From the far right, Chukwueze attracted the attention of three Ukrainian defenders who, panicking to be overwhelmed by the Nigerian's skill with the ball close to his left foot, recoiled without daring to approach him. Chukwueze chose to look up and put a measured center to the head of Gerard Moreno, who gave the strength and the necessary positioning to his shot to score.
Dinamo wanted and could not and Emery's team continued to do their thing, unchanged and at cruising speed imposing his style. Only one color, yellow, wore on the pitch. Villarreal dominated all aspects of the game, in the retreat and in the deployment, in the neat exit of the ball from Asenjo, at the advanced pressure when Dynamo Kiev tried, which after half an hour put the carpet to receive the second goal. Mykolenko could not overcome Chukwueze from the left side and the ball fell at the feet of Parejo, who attended the solitary position of Gerard Moreno that he solved with a shot that surpassed Bushchan.
The second half had no history. Dinamo had neither the courage nor the pride to put on makeup for the tie, surpassed from start to finish by Villarreal delivered to the figure of Gerard Moreno.
