Villarreal's only setback in the last four rounds was a 2-1 loss to two-time defending champion Barcelona at Camp Nou Stadium on Tuesday.

Real Betis, which was unbeaten in its last four matches, stayed ninth in the 20-team table, with eight points. Barcelona, without the injured Lionel Messi, visits Getafe on Saturday.
