Villarreal sneak past Bilbao

Athletic Bilbao became the latest team to be brushed aside by the Villarreal juggernaut on Sunday as Manuel Pellegrini´s in-form side continued their flying start to the campaign with a 1-0 win.

Centre-back Fabricio Fuentes netted the only goal of the game in the second half as Villarreal made it five wins in six league matches this season, and 13 in their last 14 stretching back to the last campaign.

Villarreal have not been totally unstoppable though, as proved by Real Madrid´s remarkable 5-0 win at El Madrigal earlier this month, and Athletic gave the ´Yellow Submarine´ plenty of food for thought in this match.
