The veteran Chilean was a man possessed who simply wasn't allowing Villarreal to leave town with a point with an outstanding display to win his side the match.

In a sensational attacking performance where he recorded 92 touches, the most on the pitch, as well as recording an astonishing 16 of those in the Villarreal penalty area, Orellana was relentless.

He set up the opener with a teasing corner and spent the rest of the match harassing the Yellow Submarine back line, completing five dribbles and hitting the target with four of his seven shots.

But it wasn't until the 95th minute when he made it count, drifting into the area to nod home the winner in the 95th minute to give Eibar a vital win.
