Villarreal offered an extraordinary show against Real Sociedad, including a goalfest (4-0) to secure the three points. The Yellows managed to control the game and pace at all times, but it was during the last moments when the team outplayed the Donosti based squad with goals by Bruno, Cheryshev and a double goal by Moi Gómez. With this victory, the Submarine keeps its 6th position and looks at the European positions with optimism despite this is a long run and there are still many matches to go.
