The first half of the game remained goalless but two back-to-back goals broke the deadlock. Villareal's Pervis Estupinan's own goal in the 53rd minute was followed by Sadio Mane's strike in 55th min.

Despite their profile as a modest club, Villarreal had stunned the football world after eliminating Juventus and Bayern Munich in the knockout stage.
