Osasuna dealt a real blow to Villarreal's European hopes with a 3-2 win.Osasuna dealt a real blow to Villarreal's hopes of clinching a spot in next term's UEFA Champions League with a 3-2 win on Thursday.
Villarreal have hit a barren patch in recent weeks, but still headed into Thursday's encounter well placed in fifth spot.
Winning their game in hand would have moved them level with Sevilla in third position, but they could never shake off Osasuna and succumbed to a late goal.
Marcos Senna put Villarreal in the ascendancy after just seven minutes, but Osasuna rallied and were level before the break when Pierre Webo scored on 40 minutes.
The game tipped in Osasuna's favour just after the hour when Juan Ortiz found the target.
Villarreal drew level 20 minutes from time through Juan Pablo Sorin, but their hopes of claiming the spoils were dashed when John Aloisi went some way to proving he is worthy of a new deal with a winner for Osasuna in the last minute.
