Villarreal find themselves 5 points shy of Real Madrid with a 3-0 win over Zaragoza

Villarreal was able to accomplish what they were hoping to accomplish today as they defeated bottom-seeders Real Zaragoza 3-0. Goals from Marcos Senna, Santi Cazorla and Nilmar gave the Yello Submarine the 3-0 win today as they still have a chance in winning the league title. As for Real Zaragoza, they still have a long way to go to make a run at anything as they still sit within the relegation zone.

Senna and Cazorla were able to give Villarreal the 2-0 lead before the break at the Estadio La Romareda, but after Zaragoza’s, Matteo Contini, was issued a red card a few minutes after the hour mark, Villarreal did well to punish the home-team. Nilmar would gave Villarreal the cushion as he put the Yellow Submarine up by 3.

Although it started off as a close match between both sides, as Zaragoza looked like they were going to be no easy task, Villarreal slowly found their rhythm and shut-out the home team as they went on to net 3 goals. This game puts Villarreal just 5 points of La Liga leaders Real Madrid as they continue to try and show the league that they can hang with the dominate club. Sad news however for Real Zaragoza as they just total 8 points in 13 league games.

Think Villarreal have a chance to surprisingly finish 1st in La Liga this season? Have fait in Real Zaragoza to avoid relegation? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.
