Both players started the game and it was Higuain who created the opening goal for Ruben de la Red.
"One always works to be a starter and I'm very happy. I am not complaining. I like playing in attack because that is my natural position, but I will not enter into any controversy," said Higuain afterwards.
"I will not say whether or not Raul is untouchable , he is an example for me. I admire him."
