The season kicks off with a Valencia derby on Sept. 13 and runs through Matchday 38 on May 23, a final day highlighted by Villarreal's visit to Real Madrid.
Gerard Moreno scored his competition-leading 10th goal to set Villarreal on its way to a commanding 4-0 victory at Celta Vigo in the Spanish league on Friday. The Spain striker was set up by Dani Parejo after Parejo stole possession from Celta’s Denis Suárez near the area and played Moreno clear to open the scoring in the fifth minute at Balaídos Stadium. A poor pass by Celta Vigo goalkeeper Ruben Blanco led to the visitors doubling their advantage in the 14th.
We may have finished fifth last season and we may end up there again this year but the feel of things is entirely different. On January 8th last season we were in 9th place, seven points adrift of 4th. This year we sit in 5th, one point behind Champions League places, and have more points in 17 matches than we had in 19.
