Real Madrid striker Higuain happy with scoring form after another double

Gonzalo Higuain was delighted to be again amongst the goals for Real Madrid last night.

Higuain and Cristiano Ronaldo both notched braces as Madrid downed Getafe 4-2 to record their 10th successive win in La Liga and leapfrog back over Barcelona at the summit.

"Now what's important is to win on Sunday. We need to continue along this line and play like we've been doing," said Higuain, who was making his 100th league appearance for Madrid last night.

The Argentinian's brace also saw him equal his total of 22 league goals from last season which means he is now only three behind Barca playmaker Lionel Messi at the top of the Primera Division scoring charts.

"I'm always happy to score goals, and if these goals serve to help the team, then so much the better," Higuain added.
