The home side moved ahead through Gareth Bale's delicate chip after six minutes, before the Welshman turned provider for Karim Benzema to slot the ball home at the near post.

Mario's fierce strike brought Villarreal back into the match before half-time, but Jesé capped off a fine team move after the break to make it 3-1.

With just over 20 minutes remaining, Giovani ensured tension among the home fans by pulling another goal back.

The Mexican international curled a beautiful left-footed strike from 25 yards out that rocketed past Diego López and into the back of the net.

The goal wouldn't be enough for the visitors, though, as Benzema restored his team's two-goal lead in the 76th minute.
