Fifth placed Villarreal moved up level with Valencia after a 2-1 win over Numancia, only their second victory in nine games. Rossi returned to the side after an injury lay-off and was on target early on, beating Juan Pablo after Angel set him up. Aranda equalised before half time after picking up an assist from Barkero. But Rossi hit the bar after the break, and a few minutes later he scored his second of the night after Llorente set him up with a clever overhead pass to leave the visitors down in the bottom three.
