Kevin-Prince Boateng scored one of the goals of the season for Las Palmas but it was not enough to stop them losing 2-1 to Villarreal at the El Madrigal on Sunday.
It was training ground stuff from the Yellows, who began their clash confidently and showed it was not just the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona who can find the back of the net in style as they took a 30th-minute lead.
Intricate build up on the edge of the box between Jonathan Viera and Vicente Gomez saw the visitors work the ball well to find a way into the area to Tana, who produced a superb back-heel volley to Boateng, who flung himself in the air and found the bottom corner with a stunning improvised finish.
The well-travelled midfielder - who has played for the likes of Portsmouth, AC Milan and Tottenham - was mobbed by his team-mates after netting his third goal for the club since he joined in the summer.
In the end, the goal would count for nothing after Nicola Sansone converted from the spot after he was fouled in the area, before Cedric Bakambu netted the winner for Villarreal deep into injury-time.
