Two weeks into the season and the league-leaders are Villarreal.
So far, el Submarino Amarillo have played two and won two, despite the fact both fixtures have been away from home.
First, Álex Baena’s late brace wrapped up a 3-0 victory over Real Valladolid at Estadio José Zorrilla.
Then, far more surprisingly, goals from Yeremy and then Gerard Moreno saw Villarreal beat Atlético Madrid 2-0 at Cívitas Metropolitano last Sunday.
This is Unai Emery’s first-ever victory over Diego Simeone, coming in their 20th managerial meeting.
Emery personally has not qualified any club for the Champions League via the league, aside from PSG, since leading Valencia to third in 2011/12.
Given how his team are playing, this statistic could change.
Meanwhile, the 2021 Europa League winners and last season’s Champions League semi-finalists are eyeing another extended continental adventure.
On Thursday night, Villarreal beat Hajduk Split 2-0 at Stadion Poljud; Alfonso Pedraza and Samu Chukwueze on target.
This saw the Yellow Submarine prevail 6-2 on aggregate, booking the ticket to the Europa Conference League group stages.
Back in La Liga, will their 100% start in all competitions continue?
In stark contrast, Getafe kick off rock bottom of the table.
Azulones were swatted aside 3-0 by Atlético Madrid on the opening weekend, before Monday night’s 3-0 drubbing at Girona.
Domingos Duarte with an unfortunate own goal at Montilivi, meaning Enes Ünal’s late strike was a mere consolation.
A stoppage time red card shown to Fabrizio Angileri capped off a miserable night for Quique Sánchez Flores’ team in Catalonia.
In short, everything points towards a Villarreal victory at Estadio Coliseum Alfonso Pérez.
