Nilmar scored twice as Villarreal beat Valladolid 3-1.

The Brazil striker headed both goals, in the seventh minute from Damian Escudero's cross and in the 47th, when he latched on to a long pass out of defense and lobbed onrushing goalkeeper Justo Villar.

Italy striker Giuseppe Rossi made it 3-0 in the 58th before Valladolid's Diego Costa cut the deficit three minutes later, taking advantage of a defensive error to shoot home from a tight angle.
