Villarreal enjoyed a mesmerising away victory against Valladolid at José Zorrilla on Thursday. Both sides came from defeats in their previous league games. Valladolid arrived at the game looking pick up points after losing 3-0 to Valencia in their last match whilst Villarreal were beaten 4-2 in the previous match against Celta Vigo. As things stand, Valladolid are in 18th place, with 31 points from 36 matches, while Villarreal sit in 6th, with 55 points from 36.
After an un-eventful first half, Villarreal continued to pile on the pressure in the second and were rewarded, thanks to a goal from Gerard Moreno in the 68th minute. However they weren't finished yet and Etienne Capoue made it 2-0 just before the final whistle to make it 2-0.
For Valladolid, Ruben Alcaraz, Sergi Guardiola, Kiko Olivas, Marcos De Sousa and Michel Herrero, came on for Joaquin Fernandez, Roque Mesa, Fede San Emeterio, Toni Villa and Oscar Plano. Villarreal brought on Yeremi Pino, Alex Baena and Alberto Moreno, to replace Paco Alcacer, Manu Trigueros and Moi Gomez.
There were bookings for Jawad El Yamiq, Kiko Olivas and Sergi Guardiola from Valladolid. For Villarreal, Etienne Capoue saw yellow.
Valladolid will next travel to Real Sociedad, while Villarreal will face Seville at home.
