Villarreal were the only La Liga side to get a point in the second round of group games after they were held to a 0-0 draw by Maccabi Tel-Aviv. New coach Javier Calleja was in charge for the first time after taking over from Fran Escribá earrlier in the week, and he saw Rajikovic save from Trigueros and Bacca before the break. Samu Sastillejo hit the post after the restart, but Jordi Cruyff’s team held on for their first point. Villarreal are joint top with Slavia Prague, who they meet next.
