Villarreal scored a point when Elche visited El Madrigal (1-1) in a clash where the Yellows were intense and very psyched, about playing the visitors, that despite having very clear ideas on attack and defending forcefully, they could only take the lead after a controversial penalty. With the tie, the set of Marcelino Garcia Toral remains in seventh, making the fight for the Europa League a little more difficult. Villarreal could only gain a single point on Sevilla and Real Sociedad who are in fifth and sixth respectively.
