Atletico Madrid are top of the table after victory at Celta Vigo.

Two quickfire second-half goals from David Villa lifted Atletico Madrid to the top of the Primera Division standings with a 2-0 victory at Celta Vigo on Saturday evening.

With Barcelona having suffered a surprise 1-0 defeat at Real Valladolid earlier in the day and Real Madrid not in action until Sunday, Diego Simeone's side headed into the game at Balaidos knowing a win would put them at the summit.
