Villarreal win to keep pressure on Athletic

Jérémy Perbet struck twice as Villarreal CF won 3-1 to close within three points of Athletic Club in fourth in the Liga and leave CA Osasuna one place above the drop zone.

Jérémy Perbet struck twice as Villarreal CF beat CA Osasuna 3-1 to close within three points of Athletic Club in fourth in the Liga.

After a sluggish first half, the home side moved through the gears after the restart and French striker Perbet quickly broke the deadlock, collecting Jaume Costa's pass before sliding the ball under the keeper. Manuel Trigueros Muñoz soon made it 2-0 and the Yellow Submarine were cruising when Perbet sealed the points 15 minutes from time after good work from Moisés Gómez. Substitute Oriol Riera pulled one back late on but defeat leaves them 17th, four matches without a win.
