    Time:90'
    • Villarreal CF
    • FC Twente
    • 90+2' There goes the final whistle! A thumping 5-1 win for the Yellow Submarine. They are surely through to the semi-finals. Twente simply outclassed on the night.
    • 90+1' GOAL FOR TWENTE! Wisgerhof throws over a cross and Janko rises in the box to head beyond Lopez. Mussachio caught out at the back post. An away goal for the Dutch side.
    • 89' Two minutes to be added.
    • 88' The home fans in party mood as we head for the final few minutes.
    • 87' Cani goes for goal from distance, but just clears the bar. What a goal that would have been from distance. Almost at the halfway line.
    • 86' Nilmar is the latest man to be booked. Think he was booking for unsporting conduct. Time wasting. Same idea I think. He misses the second leg too.
    • 85' There are suggestions that Cazorla picked up that booking knowing that he would be out of the second leg. Not a bad leg to miss if he is already on a booking.
    • 84' Twente lost 4-0 at PSG in the UEFA Cup in 2008 and against Arsenal in the Champions League. This would eclipse that result.
    • 83' Janssen throws over the free-kick. Met by Janko, but he can only prod the ball at goal. Easy take for Lopez in the home goal. Poor finish really.
    • 82' Cazorla is booked for failing to retreat far enough as Twente prepared to take a free-kick.
    • 81' Twente heading for their heaviest defeat in European competition at 5-0.
    • 80' Kiko is brought on to take over from Catala. A well earned rest for him.
    • 79' Great pass by Rossi to play in Nilmar, but Douglas wall over the place again. Awful defending really.
    • 78' GOAL FOR VILLARREA! Nilmar slams the fifth goal into the net. A superb finish by the home player. Surely no way back in this tie for the Dutch side.
    • 77' Valero given a standing ovation as he departs to be replaced by Cani. He has enjoyed a fine night.
    • 76' Villarreal in possession at the back as the home side prepare to make another change.
    • 75' The crowd not as animated as earlier on. Villarreal trying to take the sting out of the play in the final 15 minutes or so.
    • 74' Former Wigan midfielder Denny Landzaat is brought on to replace Brama for Twente.
    • 73' Capdevila with a cross from wide on the left. Hangs the ball high in the air, but Mihailov can make the save. Easy enough take.
    • 72' Wisgerhof is guilty of handling the ball after some neat little play by Nilmar.
    • 71' Unless Twente can find a goal here, you would have to say this tie is over. Can't see Villarreal losing five in the Netherlands next week.
    • 70' Nilmar doing a bit of diving to try to win a free-kick, but the referee doesn't buy it as Onyewu stands tall to make the tackle.
    • 69' In fact he won't. Joan Capdevila is brought on to replaced the injured Gonzalo. Looked like an ankle ligament injury there.
    • 68' An awful challenge by Janko. He is lucky to avoid a red card for that. Gonzalo is getting carted off. Not sure if he will be back.
    • 67' Janko takes out Gonzalo with a late challenge. Free-kick to the home side and a booking for Janko.
    • 66' Rossi goes to ground. Looks for a free-kick, but the referee rightly waves play on. Villarreal not in a hurry to go anywhere.
    • 65' Cazorla looking hungry to get on the ball. Douglas loses the ball to Valero before he is penalised for a late foul. The home team back in possession.
    • 64' Bruno is clipped by Janssen, who is looking a bit of a dejected figure out there. The Twente body language is not too good, as you would suspect.
    • 63' Janssen with a free-kick inside the home half. Slaps the ball in deep, but the dead ball has too much fizz as it races behind for a goalkick to the home side.
    • 62' Tiendalli goes in a strong challenge on Valero. The Villarreal midfielder complains of an elbow, but the referee waves play on.
    • 61' Villarreal living off almost 70% of possession and it is showing in the scoreline.
    • 60' Nacer Chadli arrives to replace Ruiz, who is needing some ice applied to an injury.
    • 59' Sharp counter attack by Twente! Great pass from Janssen to Janko, but he lifts the shot over the bar. Chance gone of an away goal.
    • 58' Cazorla takes the ball from Nilmar, but Lopez dives to low to make the stop. Fine more. Almost a fifth goal for the home team.
    • 57' Could be a few more goals in this game for the La Liga team. They look dangerous every time they press forward.
    • 56' Going to be a change coming here for the Dutch side. Rosales is booked for a late challenge on Cazorla.
    • 55' Nine goals for Rossi in the Europa League this season. Lovely pass by Bruno to send him racing clear. Twente kept backing off and paid the price as Rossi whipped the ball high into the net from 25 yards.
    • 54' GOAL FOR VILLARREAL! Rossi scores a stunning fourth goal. No chance for Mihailov.
    • 53' Rossi thumps a shot at the Twente goal from distance. Easy enough take for Mihailov, but Rossi is dangerous in those situations.
    • 52' Ruiz is well offside. Heads wide of the goal. Villareeal playing a high line.
    • 51' Good awarness by Franco to cut out the cross by Rosales. Twente continue to struggle to make any impact upon Villarreal.
    • 50' Twente earn themselves a corner after some decent play by Rosales, but Janssen whacks the ball straight out of play.
    • 49' Janko deemed to be offside. Took too long to get back onside. The Spanish side in possession.
    • 48' Twente guilty of giving the ball away far too cheaply. Long ball from the back flies out of play and the home side have a goalkick.
    • 47' Mario hammers a shot over the bar after some fine attacking play by Rossi and Nilmar. Villarreal straight back on the offensive.
    • 46' We are off and running in this second period. Can Twente stop the bleeding, that is the main question.
    • 45+1' There goes the whistle for the break. Villarreal lead 3-0. Long, long way back for the Dutch side. This tie already looks finished.
    • 45+1' A THIRD GOAL FOR VILLARREAL! Nilmar spins off Douglas after Wisgerhof makes a mess of a clearance. Easy finish for Nilmar. Twente suffering a torrid time.
    • 44' A minute to be added to this half.
    • 43' Valero makes a decent dash into the box, but Douglas is on hand this time to make the block. Twente will be happy to hear the half-time whistle.
    • 42' Twente all over the place at the back. They look as if they are unsure of their remit. Something has to change if the Dutch side are going to get back into this game.
    • 41' GOAL FOR VILLARREAL! A second goal for the home side. Great pass by Cazorla and Valero bounds clear to slip the shot under Mihailov. 2-0. The visitors in a spot of bother now.
    • 40' Rosales wins the ball from Nilmar, who takes his time to get back on his feet. Looks like he is fit again as the Spanish side build again.
    • 39' Cazorla with the corner-kick. Good floated ball, but Ruiz is on hand to whack the ball out his box.
    • 38' Ruiz is penalised for a late one on Catala. Twente getting pushed all over the place as the home side earn themselves another corner.
    • 37' Benfica 1-0 PSV, Porto 1-0 Spartak Moscow and Dyname Kiv 1-1 Braga. Those are the latest scores in the other matches this evening.
    • 36' Onyewu rises to head out the cross by Cazorla. Preud'homme looking a bit concerned on that visiting box.
    • 35' Brama is late on Valero. Villarreal continue to push and probe at the visiting side's defence. Nilmar on the ball.
    • 34' Decent cross from Catala into the Twente box, but cleared by Janssen. Little doubt that the visiting side are toiling.
    • 33' Some more lovely close control from Nilmar, but he is taken out late by Douglas Franco. Villarreal continue to turn the screw.
    • 32' Super little ball Cazorla into the the path of Nilmar. Chips the ball over the goalkeeper, but so unlucky to see the ball come back off a post.
    • 31' Onyewu fouls Rossi and Villarreal have a free-kick. The La Liga side looking to get on with it.
    • 30' A twisted ankle for De Jong. Here comes the change. Marc Janko brought on for the visiting team.
    • 29' Onyewu hammers the ball long from inside his box. Twente have been rocked by the loss of that goal, no doubt about that.
    • 28' De Jong is down on the ground and needing a bit of treatment. Could be an early change for Twente. He is off the park at the moment.
    • 27' Valero throws over the corner. Decent delivery, but Wisgerhof rises to nod out of the box. Villarreal well in control all this match all of a sudden.
    • 26' Brama needing a bit of treatment. Cazorla throws over a cross to the back post, but the ball drops behind for a corner. Nilmar almost on the end of that.
    • 25' Nilmar pressurising Wisgerhof. The Dutch captain knocks the ball behind for a corner. Marchena robs Brama of the ball seconds earlier.
    • 24' Catala bounds away down the opposite flank. Strong surging run, but Tiendalli eventually hacks the ball away.
    • 23' Cazorla throws a cross over to the near post, but easy enough take for Mihailov. Good stop. The Spanish side starting to motor.
    • 22' Catala got the little flick on at the front post and there was no red shirt marking as Marchena nodded the ball over the line. Work to be done now for the visiting side.
    • 21' GOAL FOR VILLARREAL! Marchena has nodded home from Valero's delivery. Fine finish, but what where Twente doing? Awful defending.
    • 20' Wisgerhof pulling back Mussachio in the area. That was shirt tugging there, but no foul. Corner to the home side.
    • 19' Valero showing some good skills and strength on the ball before being hauled down by Wisgerhof. Free-kick to the home side.
    • 18' Valero throws over the cross, but no yellow shirt on the end of that delivery as Mihailov takes with some ease. The Spanish side at least enjoying a bit more attacking play.
    • 17' Villarreal needing one more goal to reach 150 in European competiton. They are back on the attack and earn themselves a corner as Nilmar's header is deflected wide.
    • 16' Mussachio takes a tumble in the box. He is doing a bit of pushing and shoving in the area. Onyewu whacks clear Valero's corner.
    • 15' Ruiz is deemed to be offside from the pass by Janssen. Decent idea. Twente continuing to catch the eye out there.
    • 14' Janssen has a go at goal from distance, but his deflected shot is charged down. No problems for Lopez who picks the ball up with ease.
    • 13' Lopez knocks the ball out of play. Twente back on the attack here as Onyewu picks the pocket of Valero in midfield.
    • 12' Janssen thinks about the shot, but opts for the flighted free-kick and the ball flies out of the play. Was a poor cross into the area.
    • 11' Mussachio brings down Ruiz. Lucky to avoid a booking there. Another free-kick to the visiting side. 30 yards out.
    • 10' Rosales throws the free-kick up the park as Villarreal struggle to exert themselves upon this match.
    • 9' Catala penalised for a late foul on Ruiz seconds after Valero was almost played in for a shot at goal. Good shape to this Twente side, it must be said.
    • 8' Twente boss Michel Preud'homme's only previous coaching experience of Spanish opposition, his Standard de Liège side lost 1-0 at home and 3-0 away against RC Celta de Vigo in the 2006/07 UEFA Cup.
    • 7' Janssen opts for power from 25 yards out. Really got hold of that shot, but he sees that shot swerve by the post from distance. Goal-kick to the home team.
    • 6' De Jong taken out of the action late by Mussachio and that is a free-kick to the visiting side. This has been a really positive start by the Dutch team.
    • 5' Twente earn themselves a second corner in these early moments. Janssen with the corner, but this time Bruno is on hand to nod the ball out of the area.
    • 4' Ruiz tries to play a lovely little ball through to De Jong, but too much pace on the pass. Lopez takes with some ease in the home goal.
    • 3' Janssen takes the corner, but nodded out by Gonzalo. Twente like most Dutch teams not lacking in the technical aspects of the game.
    • 2' Catala comes across to make a strong challenge on Rosales. Twente would love an away goal this evening. Early corner to the away side.
    • 1' We are off and running in this match. Let us hope for a good one.
    • 20.02 Giuseppe Rossi is the leading scorer in this tournament with eight goals.
    • 20.00 Teams out on the pitch. Villarreal in yellow, Twente in red.
    • 19.55 The overall winners will take on the victors of the contest between Porto and Spartak in the semi-finals on 28 April and 5 May, playing the second leg at home. The winners of that tie will be the nominal home side in the final at the Dublin Arena on 18 May.
    • 19.50 FC Twente boss Michel Preud’homme can count on a fully-fit first-team squad for the clash, and he sticks with the team that beat PSV Eindhoven at the weekend. The whole squad trained at El Madrigal on Wednesday, with Nacer Chadli leading the line and match-winner Theo Janssen marshal the midfield.
    • 19.45 Villarreal midfielder Marcos Senna and full-back Angel have recovered from long-term injuries but are not match-fit and are not expected to feature. Otherwise Juan Carlos Garrido has a full squad to pick from, with Bruno and Mario respectively likely to continue in place of the unfit duo, although Carlos Marchena could be asked to play as a defensive midfielder.
    • 19.40 Twente have been alternating wins and defeats in the course of their five European away games this season, and since they lost 2-0 at FC Zenit St Petersburg last time out, they are due a victory at El Madrigal if that pattern is to continue.
    • 19.35 The teams are meeting for the first time in UEFA club competition. Villarreal have played six games against Dutch sides with a record reading W3 D2 L1 (W1 D1 L1 at home). Villarreal's 6-1 home win against Eredivisie side NAC Breda in the 2009/10 UEFA Europa League play-off round remains their joint-largest margin of victory in a UEFA club competition game. Giuseppe Rossi, who is still with the club, scored three goals over the two legs of that tie.
    • 19.30 The referee for this evening's match is Aleksei Nikolaev from Russia.
    • 19.25 Twente Enschede: Mihaylov; Rosales, Douglas, Wisgerhof, Onyewu; Tiendalli, Brama, Janssen; Ruiz, De Jong, Bajrami.
    • 19.20 Villarreal: Lopez; Gaspar, Musacchio, Gonzalo, Catala; Cazorla, Valero, Marchena, Soriano; Rossi, Nilmar
    • 19.15 Good evening and welcome to live coverage of the match between Villarreal v Twente in the Europa League quarter-finals at El Madrigal. This is the first leg of this tie.
