Zinedine Zidane said the league would be Real Madrid’s main objective this season, even ahead of the Champions League through which their legend was forged, and now he and his side have delivered.

The Frenchman even scored a Johan Cruyff-style penalty when Sergio Ramos passed to him from the spot but he had encroached in the area and the kick had to be retaken.

The opening goal came on 26 minutes and it was made by Modric and brilliantly buried by Benzema.

Casemiro won the ball back in midfield and fed Luka Modric. He played his pass perfectly into the path of the Real Madrid’s top scorer and he put it through the legs of Sergio Asenjo.

In the second half, Ramos surged forward and won a penalty. He seemed to have provoked the contact with Chakla but referee Alejandro Hernandez Hernandez did not change his mind after discussions with VAR Ramos tried to roll the spot-kick to Benzema. The Frenchman scored but he had ran into the area before Ramos had taken the kick.

From the retake he tucked the ball into the same corner. Vicente Iborra headed past Courtois to give Villarreal some hope of securing a draw. And the midfielder might have levelled late on but put the ball wide.
