The Yellow Submarine are also undefeated in their last two matches at home in La Liga having recorded one win and one draw as the hosts.
“I have to congratulate the team for the work that the players have put in, and above all, those who hadn’t been playing as much," Villarreal manager Unai Emery said after their clash with Celta. 
"It was an extra piece of motivation for them to try and get the win. The team was great. We know that we weren’t clinical enough, and we have to live with that. At 0-1, anything can change the outcome of the game. 
"The match should have been killed off, it should have been 0-2. I’ll go away happy with the great performance and the performances of certain players, such as Iborra and Rubén Peña. We have to think about the next match, and find another level.”
