Intertoto cup - semi-final, second leg
Troyes (0) 2 - Villarreal (0) 1
Villarreal: Reina; Belletti, Quique Medina, Quique Alvarez, Galván (Guayre 68'); Galca, Josico (Aranda 70'); Jorge López, Víctor, Calleja; Palermo. 4-2-3-1.
Villarreal were knocked out of the Intertoto cup at the semi-final stage after losing their second leg match in France. Víctor Muñoz's side needed to score after a goalless draw at home, and their efforts were rewarded in the tenth minute when Calleja pulled down a long cross from Belletti to fire his side into the lead. However they were unable to hold on to their advantage, and Ghazi levelled the scores before the break with a header from a corner.
Things seemed to be going well when Troyes were reduced to ten men with the sending off of Amzine just before the break, and Galca struck the bar moments later. But a penalty from Gousse ten minutes into the second half after a mistake by Quique Medina ended their hopes, and even with four forwards on the park for the last twenty minutes they were unable to beat Heurtebis and his stalwart defence.
