Miguel Layun played 90 minutes in Watford’s 5-0 victory over Charlton. It was a comfortable victory for the Hornets as they remain in a playoff position. Layun played an important part in at least two of Watford’s goals when one of his crosses rebounded to Cathcart for Watford’s opener. In the second, Layun sent a through ball to Paredes, who assisted Ighalo in Watford’s third.
Javier Aquino and Carlos Vela, meanwhile, were both participants in Rayo Vallecano’s 1-0 win at Real Sociedad. Vela played all 90 minutes, and Aquino was substituted off in the 60th minute. Former Manchester United player, Manucho, scored the only goal to give Rayo Vallecano all three points in Anoeta.
In Estadio El Madrigal, Jonathan Dos Santos started and played 80 minutes while Giovani came in as a substitute as the Yellow Submarine defeated Athletic Bilbao 2-0. Three minutes from the break, Cheryshev put the hosts ahead with a nice individual finish. Bruno Soriano guaranteed Villarreal all three points with a penalty in the closing stages.
With rumors lingering of his possible departure to the Premier League, Hector Moreno played all 90 minutes of Espanyol’s 1-0 win against Celta Vigo. Felipe Caicedo scored near the end to give the Periquitos a late victory.
The second half of the Dutch Eredivise came back into full swing this weekend. Andres Guardado played 90 minuets in PSV’s exciting 1-0 victory over Vitesse Arnhem. Adam Maher scored the lone goal as the Red and Whites maintain their four point advantage at the top of the table.
Lastly, Hector Herrera was on target for FC Porto in their 3-1 victory over Primeira Liga relegation favorites, FC Penafiel. It was a game characterized by the wet conditions of the field, but that might had helped Herrera get his goal. In the 30th minute, Danilo dragged his shot towards goal. The ball, however, awkwardly slowed down in front of the empty net for an incoming Herrera to put the visitors ahead. The 3-1 win keeps Porto in second in the league.
