This victory allowed the hosts to surpass previous leaders Girona, who will face Alaves on Sunday. Rodrygo also contributed to Real’s win by doubling their lead, while Jose Luis Morales managed to reduce the deficit for Villarreal. However, Brahim Diaz and Luka Modric sealed the victory for Real Madrid with further goals.

In Serie A, Inter Milan extended their lead at the top with a 2-0 win over Lazio in Rome.
