Giovanni Dos Santos scored two goals and set up another pair as Villarreal romped to a 5-1 Spanish league win Monday over familiar foe Real Sociedad.

The Mexico striker opened the scoring in the 16th minute before setting up Ikechuwku Uche from the left side in the 27th.

Dos Santos created space in the 33rd to unleash a left-footed shot before again picking out Uche in the 55th for 4-0.

Moi Gomez made it 5-0 in the 58th before Imanol Agirretxe scored a consolation goal for the Basque side, which will play a Copa del Rey return leg at El Madrigal on Thursday after a scoreless draw to start the last 16 matchup.

Villarreal moved two points clear of Sociedad into fifth ahead of their third meeting inside a week.
