Villarreal dominate Sporting Gijón in 3-1 win

Nice to go into the winter break on a high note.

Villarreal made sure it goes into the winter break in fourth place in La Liga with a 3-1 victory over Sporting Gijón. Goals from Jonathan dos Santos and Nicola Sansone before 20 minutes were up gave the Submarine control of the match, and Alexandre Pato added a third midway through the second half. A late, slightly freakish header from Carmona broke the shutout, unfortunately.

Whoscored had Alexandre Pato as the top player in the match followed by Sansone and Jaume Costa (who had 10 tackles on the day). And it should be noted Leo Suarez made his debut, coming on for the last five minutes or so. Congratulations to him!
