Villarreal 1-1 Deportivo La  Coruña
Sunday, April 9, 2006

Villarreal remain eighth in La Liga after being held to a 1-1 draw at home by Deportivo La Coruña.

After a scoreless first half, Deportivo took the lead at El Madrigal through midfielder Sergio González after 71 minutes.

But the visitors' lead did not last long and just two minutes later, the hosts restored parity through their Mexican international striker, Guillermo Franco.

The result keeps the Yellow Submarines in contention for a UEFA Cup place. Their next game sees them travel to Barcelona to take on Frank Rijkaard's table-topping champions.
