Santi Cazorla came back from the latest international break with a bang, setting up two goals in three minutes as Villarreal got their first win in six games on Sunday.

After recovering from injury over the summer, Cazorla has slowly been easing himself back into regular action with Villarreal. He had to settle for a spot on the bench in recent draws against Levante and Rayo Vallecano, but he made the most of his return to the starting eleven facing Real Betis.

The highlight of the Spaniard’s performance was a backheel assist for Chukwueze to score what turned out to be the winning goal:

However, the 33-year-old also set up Villarreal’s opening goal from a corner. His crosses into the box were causing plenty of problems, and Gerard Moreno turned one home on the second attempt in the 52nd minute:

As well as setting up both goals, Cazorla will be pleased to have managed another 90 minutes. He might not get too much time to rest and recover though, as the La Liga side have a pretty crucial game against Rangers in the Europa League on Thursday.

Though Villarreal are currently top of their group, they’re only two points ahead of Rapid Wien in last place, which shows you how close things are in Group G. Cazorla set up one goal in the home clash with Rangers, so we’ll see if he can repeat the trick in the away game.
