Villarreal had already done enough in the first leg against NAC Breda to qualify for the league stage, but Valverde wasn't taking any chances, and put out a strong side. The result was a crushing 6-1 victory to make it 9-2 on aggregate.

Cazorla started things off after a cross from Marcos Senna came through to him, and Rossi added two more from the penalty spot before the break. Senna got the fourth himself just a minute after the restart, and then set up half time substitute Jonathan Pereira for the fifth.

Valverde decided at last to rest Senna, but a couple of minute later another substitute, B team defender Kiko got on the end of Cazorla's cross to make it six. There was still time for Llorente to hit the bar and for Cani to shoot just wide, but in the end they relaxed and allowed De Graaf to score a late consolation for the Dutch side.
