Villarreal dominated after the sending-off and came close to making it 2-0 on 26 minutes, though Cani could only direct his volley wide of the post.

Papakouli Diop had the home side's first real effort of the match on 34 minutes, heading a lofted cross towards the top corner, but Sergio Asenjo saved well to preserve his side's lead.

Hernan Perez almost doubled Villarreal's advantage on 40 minutes, but his first-time shot smashed the crossbar.

Soriano came close again just before half time, but his shot from the edge of the box was saved well.

The away side began to dominate again and came close to taking the lead on two occasions, but neither Jonathan Pereira nor Javier Aquino could hit the target with their efforts.
