Match ends, Villarreal 1, Valencia CF 0.
Valencia boss Gary Neville is still waiting for his first La Liga win after his side lost to Villarreal.
After a quiet first half, Andre Gomes, Dani Parejo and Paco Alcacer squandered chances for the visitors.
They were punished when Bruno Soriano rifled a brilliant free-kick straight into the top left corner.
The hosts move into the Champions League places, while Valencia - with two points from three games under Neville - remain 10th.
Their next game is against Real Madrid on Sunday in La Liga as Neville attempts to add to his sole win, which came against third-tier Barakaldo in the Copa del Rey.
