Match Result: Sporting 0-1 Villarreal

Villarreal squeaks by lowly Sporting de Gijon this afternoon, with Rossi sneaking through a shot to open up his season with a goal. There was some controversy on the goal, as Sporting argued Llorente handled the ball before Rossi's shot, but the referee was not ready to listen to the complaints. A fourth consecutive league victory for Villarreal, who go back to first in the league, which should be both a reminder - nothing is going to be gifted to them - and a boost of confidence - four wins, no matter how they come, is always good - heading into the Celtic match on Tuesday.
