Villarreal moved into the European places in the Primera Liga after a 2-1 victory over Atletico Madrid.
At El Madrigal, defender Diego Godin's back-heel flick from a corner put the hosts ahead in the 21st minute.
Giuseppe Rossi increased the lead when he poked the ball in after a goalmouth scramble in the 44th minute, with the Atletico defence having stopped when they thought a penalty had been awarded.
Atletico star Sergio Aguero cut the deficit in the 63rd minute when he ran onto Jose Antonio Reyes' lobbed pass, chested the ball down, and shot past Diego Lopez.
But the Europa League semi-finalists could not find an equaliser and remained in 10th position in the table.
