Villarreal’s European campaign is in serious trouble after they lost 3-1 to Olympique Lyon on Thursday. All the goals came after the break, ex Real Madrid striker Mariano having a hand in the first two, scored by Ndombélé and Fekir. Pablo Fornals got a vital away goal with a shot which just crossed the line before being cleared, but substitute Depay fired home a third for the French side later on.
