3 UP: Diego López, Borja Valero, the match-winner.
D. Lópezánchez Pizjuán. Great saves from headers in particular, and in general command of his box. Javier Camuñas won't forget that yelling for a while. More, please. And maybe even a clean sheet at El Madrigal on Sunday.
Borja. On his game when free to roam. A goal laid on a platter by Ángel López, but someone had to meet the cross. The fulcrum of this Villarreal side: when he plays well, we win. As Allen put it: "Simply outstanding again."
3 DOWN: Ángel López, true strikers, yellow cards.
