Villarreal coach Manuel Pellegrini hailed the quality of his side´s finishing after watching them down Racing Santander to go top of the Primera Liga table for the first time.

Villarreal made it four wins out of five this season - and 12 out of 13 overall in La Liga stretching back to last season - after seeing off Racing 2-0 in Santander, with the goals coming in either half from strikers Nihat Kahveci and Giuseppe Rossi.

Pellegrini paid tribute to Racing for their performance, though, and admitted the only real difference between the sides was his team´s efficiency on front of goal, saying: "Racing have deserved better luck after looking at the chances they enjoyed, but Villarreal have finished on top because we were able to finish off the chances that we created."
