Villarreal ended their three winless runs against Valencia in the 2-0 win over The Bats in the La Liga on Tuesday evening at the La Ceramica stadium.
Villarreal dominated Valencia in the first half with Arnaut Danjuma scoring a brace for the home team in the opening 17 minutes of the clash.
The opener was via a penalty following a handball from Eray Comet and the Netherland attacker made no mistake to convert from the spot.
Danjuma was at the right place in the box when he met with a pass to get a brace and the second for Villarreal.
Villareal held on to their two-goal lead for the entire second half and the Yellow Submarines end their three winless games against The Bats.
This makes it the first time the derby will be in Villarreal’s favour after three meetings.
