Important victory for the Pamesa Cerámica sponsored team against SK Rapid Wien (1-0). A goal from Bruno Soriano put Villarreal at the top of Group E of the UEFA Europa League yesterday, just one match away from the end of the group stage. If the Submarine can win its last game against Viktoria Plzen (Thursday 10 December, 19.00 hours) it will be guaranteed first place.
Villarreal’s trainer, Marcelino García Toral, expressed his satisfaction: “It was what we wanted, to get to the last match on our own merit. We’ve achieved that and now we can leave that competition aside for the next 15 days and concentrate on the rest. We’ll go to Pilsen with the intention of winning and being first”.
