Samuel Chukwueze was on target as Villarreal were held to a 4-4 draw by Granada in their opening La Liga fixture.
Chukwueze was in action for the entire 90 minutes as both teams settled for a share of the spoils at the Estadio de la Ceramica on Saturday.
The 20-year-old found the back of the net in the 73rd minute with his left-footed finish to give the hosts a 4-2 lead, although they conceded twice shortly after.
