Strikes from Paco Alcacer and Lionel Messi placed the hosts in a comfortable position during a sensational first half display which could have feasibly seen the Catalonians command a much greater advantage.
Atletico forward Antoine Griezmann won and converted a penalty to put his side ahead at Villarreal in the 20th minute.
Atletico tempers boiled over in stoppage time and Vitolo was sent off after clashing with Nicola Sansone. Atletico are second with 64, while Real are third on 60. However, they were rampant in the first half and could have taken a heavier lead into the break as Brazilian midfielder Philippe Coutinho hit the woodwork twice and his compatriot Paulinho struck a post. Valencia are fourth while Villarreal climbed above Sevilla into fifth after Vincenzo Montella's side were beaten 2-1 at Leganes. The game slowed down in the second half and neither team came anywhere close to scoring.

"Roma also finished above both Chelsea and Atletico (in the group stage) and Atletico is our main league rival, so you get a bit of the measure of the size of rival they are", he said.
Just four days after an encounter with Chelsea that was more exacting than the 3-0 scoreline suggested, the intensity understandably dropped in the second half, but Valverde's men were able to keep Athletic at arm's length to ensure they head into the worldwide break in buoyant mood.
Seeking another potential treble, Barcelona are flying high under Messi's brilliance and are now sitting at the top of La Liga with 75 points in 29 games. Ronaldo leapfrogged Luis Suarez into second place on the Liga's top scorer's list.

"Cristiano's ambition is tremendous. What I try to do is enjoy the time with the players that I have".
