Watch: Villareal’s Sansone strikes from midfield
Nicola Sansone’s strike against Real Sociedad was brilliant to begin with, but the fact that it proved to be the match-winner for Villareal made it all the more special.
Already up a goal in the first half, Sansone received the ball near midfield in the 26th minute before looking up and unleashing a lobbed strike from just inside the halfway line to give Villareal a 2-0 lead.
Sociedad keeper Geronimo Rulli did his best to track back and make a play on the ball, but Sansone’s finish was simply too good.
