Cristiano Ronaldo scored two extraordinary set piece goals against Villarreal that allowed him to equal Zarra and Hugo Sanchez's historic record of 38 strikes in one season in La Liga. He will have a chance to break it against Almeria. The Portuguese's incredible run during the present campaign makes him the favourite to win this year's Golden Boot award. Ronaldo's goals helped Real Madrid earn a sixth straight away victory with one game left in the championship.
Jose Mourinho used Kaka and Benzema in his starting lineup, leaving Ozil and Di Maria on the bench. Real Madrid kept possession of the ball, forcing Villarreal to feel out of place on their own turf. Marcelo proved dangerous down the left win and eventually scored the opener from a great lobbed shot (16').
