Second place! Huge win for Villarreal, a match in which they dominated the entire 90 minutes. The match got a bit chippy in the second half, with Rossi and Pires both getting involved with Aguirre, who couldn't keep his mouth shut despite the scoreline. The win catapults Villarreal over Barcelona, who somehow let a 0-2 lead away to Betis dissolve in the second half. Now, Villarreal sit three points behind Madrid, and you have to think Barcelona and Real Madrid both are feeling great pressure from the Yellow Submarine as we have now gone nine matches without a loss and won four in a row. Full report on the match coming in a bit. Vamos Villarreal!
Result: Villarreal 3-0 Atletico
