Klaas Jan Huntelaar made a point of celebrating his two goals against Almeria with Real Madrid teammate Arjen Robben. The pair had appeared to clash during Real's victory at Athletic Bilbao last week, but Huntelaar last night made sure everyone knew their relationship was good.

He said: "There is no problem between us. Sometimes there are things happening on the field and there are misunderstandings. We've got along very well for a long time.

"I am happy to score but the most important thing is to win the game. Real Madrid has so much quality in this team that any footballer can score. Today the goals came from Marcelo and me, but the next game it could be anyone else. It is the quality of this team."
