Villarreal consolidated their recent recovery with a 1-2 victory at Atlético Madrid, and they are now up in to the top half of the table. Simao put the home side ahead after running on to a long pass from Reyes ten minutes before the break. But David Fuster headed the equaliser just a couple of minutes after the interval from Capdevila's cross, and with the game coming to an end Llorente squeezed past the defence to head Escudero's centre past Sergio Asenjo.
