Villarreal's league campaign got off to a slow start with a 1-1 draw at home to Huesca a week ago and things looked to be going wrong again on Saturday when they fell behind to Eibar. However, Gerard Moreno levelled the score in the 62nd minute with an excellent goal that saw him turn on a sixpence before firing home and Paco Alcacer sealed the win with a calm finish when put clean through. In Moreno and Alcacer, new Villarreal coach Unai Emery knows he has players who are both capable of netting between 15-20 goals a season (Moreno scored 18 last season and was the top scoring Spaniard in La Liga) and the pair will give his side a lot of points as they look to qualify for the Champions League this campaign.
The second half witnessed the prowess of Shanghai captain Hulk. The Brazilian striker hit the crossbar in the 55th minute with his iconic long distance shot and then converted a penalty in the 71st minute.
