Barcelona consider departures as Villarreal find their way through


Here are the Spanish football headlines from December 10.

Barça consider exits

Barcelona are considering a number of outings before January as they look to raise money to spend.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Barca could be ready to sell Philippe Coutinho and Samuel Umtiti.

Meanwhile, Sergino Dest, Frenkie de Jong and Oscar Mingueza could also be moved.

Villarreal finds a way

Villarreal reserved their place in the round of 16 of the Champions League for only the third time in their history Thursday night.

After the snow forced the yellow submarine to wait an additional 24 hours to face the Atalante, they wasted no time.

Arnaut Danjuma scored with just two minutes on the clock, and he scored another after Etienne Capoue doubled up.

Atalanta scored two goals behind, but Villarreal only needed a draw to progress, and they pulled off an impressive 3-2 win in Bergamo.

Real Sociedad progress

Real Sociedad needed to win in their last Europa League game to progress, and they did.

Two goals from Mikel Oyarzabal and efforts from Alexander Sorloth saw La Real defeat PSV 3-0.

Real Sociedad finished second in their group and will join Real Betis in the new knockout round.

Betis turned strongly in their last game and lost 3-2 away to Celtic.
