Jonathan and Giovani Dos Santos started in today’s Villarreal 1-0 win over Real Sociedad in the round of 16 of the Copa del Rey; Carlos Vela sat out with injury.
It was a balanced performance from both players. Right before the half, Gio dribbled past his marker and nearly assisted Jonathan for a goal, but Jona’s shot went just wide.
Both players eventually came off in the second half, and it would be Dennis Cheryshev who would hand the Yellow Submarine the victory in the 72nd minute.
On the other hand, for Real Sociedad, Carlos Vela didn’t travel with the team as he is still struggling with a thigh injury.
Both teams will meet again next week in the return leg when Real Sociedad play hosts.
