A 1-2 victory over Club Brugge on Wednesday evening ensured Villarreal top spot of group D. Garrido's side had already qualified for the knock-out stage, but they needed a win to be sure of staying ahead of their other group rivals. However they went behind with just under half an hour gone when Kouemaha headed in to an empty net after Diego López had pushed a shot from Blondel on to the bar. Two minutes later though Rossi steered a header past de Vlieger to equalise, and just four minutes after that the striker scored his second of the evening with a twice taken penalty (the referee ordered a retake for stopping in his run up) after Donk had brought him down in the area. The local keeper did well to save from Rossi and Marco Rúben after the restart, and the Belgian side felt they should have saved the draw when Kouemaha had a goal disallowed for a non-existent off side late on.
