It was a Jekyll and Hyde performance from the El Madrigal residents, who seemed sluggish and desperately off the pace in the opening half, but in the second period Manuel Pellegrini's Submarino Amarrillo recovered in dramatic fashion, and now stand clear atop of La Liga

The hosts looked to be suffering from a Champions League hangover as Betis dominated much of the first half. Had the Andalucian side capitalized better on the chances that came their way, it might have proved too high a mountain to climb after the break for Villarreal.

It was an open, end to end contest in the opening quarter, with Villarreal eager to keep pace at the summit of La Liga, while Betis were looking to build on a deserved point at home to Barcelona last weekend.

There was attempt after attempt on goal, starting for the visitors when Emana brought a good save out of Diego Lopez with along range effort. But it was Villarreal who looked brighter in the opening exchanges, with Ariel Ibagaza particularly dangerous down the left channel.

The former Mallorca and Atletico creative tested Casto in the Betis goal with a stinging effort that was gathered at the second attempt, before Rossi fired an acrobatic volley wide of goal after good service from the pint-sized Argentine. However, the early sprightliness was soon to dissipate. Betis gained a foothold and began stretching an increasingly sluggish host midfield and defence, as Villarreal looked distinctly jaded and were second to every ball.

Betis' superiority in the first half heralded a string of chances for Paco Chaparro’s men. Villarreal ‘keeper Lopez almost handed Los Pepinos the lead on a silver platter after fumbling a low cross straight into the path of Jose Mari, but Diego Godin managed to clear the ball with a last ditch tackle.

The Uruguayan defender’s exploits only delayed the inevitable though, and a deserved breakthrough came after twenty minutes when an unmarked Damia connected perfectly with a Gonzalez cross. The former Barcelona player stroked the ball home expertly on the volley, with his weaker left foot.

The lead should have been doubled in the first half, with a host of Betis players going close, not least due to some slack defending and concentration from their opponents. Capi powered a header toward goal forcing Lopez to parry, while Emana robbed a daydreaming Eguren to burst through on goal. He cut inside to find a better angle, but the Cameroonian dragged his shot wide.

Jose Mari, occupying a lone role up front, might have got the second after half an hour, after a mistake by Godin, but the defender’s central defensive partner Gonzalo atoned for the error with a crucial intervention.

The chances kept coming for Betis, with Damia and Capi both threatening to stretch Betis’ advantage, but the scoreline remained the same, and Villarreal were undoubtedly glad to see it through to half time without further damage inflicted.

After the break there was no immediate reaction from the hosts, and after fifteen minutes Pellegrini showed his intention to push forward by replacing Senna with Pires, while Franco provided greater physical presence than the fading Rossi.

Within minutes of the double substitution, Villarreal had launched them selves into the lead. The first came unsurprisingly from a Ibagaza assist, the minature magician curling in a freekick that was flicked on superbly by Gonzalo, with a header that gave Casto absolutely no chance in goal.

Moments later, Betis were left stunned as, after pressure around the visitors box, Ibagaza cut in from the right and into the penalty area. The number 11 fired a cross across the box which found Pires, and the Frenchman’s shot into the ground fell at the feet of Llorente, just a metre from the gaping goal for an easy finish.

It was tough on Betis, but they had lost concentration after the equalizer and paid the price. The visitors tried to fashion an equalizer but had the wind knocked firmly out of their sails, while Villarreal were solid for remainder of the contest and saw out victory.
