Ruben "Cani'' Gracia set up two goals for Villarreal in a 3-0 win over Granada on Friday as it provisionally rose past Real Madrid and into third place in the Spanish league.
Cani continued to show his excellent form this season by helping Villarreal ease to the victory at its El Madrigal Stadium.
Cani first drew Granada's defense in the area before laying off for Bruno Soriano to volley in a left-footed shot at the half-hour mark.
And after Giovani Dos Santos toed in Jonathan Pereira's cross in the 49th, Cani passed for Tomas Pina to head in the hosts' final goal in the 82nd.
Villarreal is four points behind co-leaders Barcelona and Atletico Madrid before they play later this weekend.
