Villarreal scored a second half equaliser through Spanish midfielder Dani Parejoin the first leg as the first half of the tie ended in a 1-1 draw.
For the second half of the last 16 tie between Villarreal and Juventus, all the three goals came in the last sixteen (16) minutes of their second leg clash in Turin and they all went in favour of Villarreal thus beating Juventus 3-0 for the joint heaviest home defeat for Juventus.
