This Tuesday, at 7:00 p.m. in the Emirates, Villarreal sub23 will seek the pass to the final of the Premier League International Cup against Arsenal. And he will do so by grabbing the big moment of his offensive reference, Adrián Dalmau, who has four goals in the only two matches he has played in the competition.
Meanwhile, in the first team Calleja tries all possible combinations to come up with a solvent attack, Dalmau merits to have a chance. The departure of Bakambu, together with the irregular course of Carlos Bacca or the intermittency of the Turkish Enes Ünal, forced the yellow coach to modify his attack almost every weekend.
Villarreal B maintains its promotion options intact – second to six points behind Mallorca – and has one of the top scorers in the category. Dalmau accumulates ten goals and has transferred his great moment to international competition.
The Premier League International Cup, under23 tournament organized by the English league in which many of the great clubs of the European continent meet, is in the final section of its letter edition. Newcasle and Oporto -the last champion- star one of the semifinals while Villarreal does with the other, where Arsenal awaits. The yellow team, champion two editions ago, looks for a place in the final and Dalmau’s streak is the best weapon to achieve it.
The Dalmau season, which ends with a contract at the age of 24 next summer, has not gone unnoticed by several European teams, who have already asked about their situation. The showcase of the Premier League International Cup has discovered a striker who is ready to make the leap to the elite of football.
