Villarreal top Europa League group

Villarreal confirmed they would top their Europa League after coming from behind to win 3-2 away at Astana in Kazakhstan.

Junior Kabananga gave the hosts the lead halfway through the first half but Daniel Raba levelled before the break before a Cedric Bakambu double confirmed the victory, despite Patrick Twumasi’s late consolation.

Javier Calleja’s side are unbeaten in their group and coupled with their superior head-to-head record with second-placed Slavia Prague, are in no danger of not winning their group.

Villarreal complete their campaign with a home clash with Maccabi Tel Aviv, who are already eliminated.
