BARCELONA, Spain -- Villarreal thrashed Osasuna 3-0 Saturday to establish its best start in the Spanish league with three victories in as many rounds. Villarreal has returned to the topflight after one year in the second division in fine fashion and sat as overnight leader before Sundays matches, which include both Barcelona and Real Madrid with two wins each. Elsewhere, Celta Vigos lack of finishing touch condemned it to a 1-1 draw at home against Granada, while Valladolid beat Getafe 1-0 for its first points of the season. After scoring in both of Villarreals first two victories, Mexico forward Giovani Dos Santos started the game on the bench and only came on after his team had secured the result to help it add another goal. Even without its most creative player at the start, Villarreal picked Osasuna apart thanks to the speed of its forwards. Jonathan Pereira and Javier Aquino led the way for the visitors in Pamplona. Moments after driving the ball just across the goalmouth, Pereira beat the offside trap with a perfectly-placed pass to spring Jeremy Perbet behind Osasunas high defensive line. The French striker did the rest by resisting the challenge of goalkeeper Andres Fernandez before slotting the ball between his legs. Pereira played a key part in doubling the lead on the half-hour mark. He collected Bruno Sorianos incisive long pass, dribbled deep into the box, and after momentarily losing control laid off for Aquino to scoop the ball over a defender and into the net. Coach Marcelino Garcia sent on Dos Santos for Perbet in the 63rd and 12 minutes later he squared Aquinos pass for substitute Ickechuwku Uche to polish off a counterattack. Osasuna lost its best attacking players this off-season and has yet to pick up a point while being outscored 7-1 through three defeats. Celta dominated Granada at Balaidos Stadium and went ahead in the 29th when midfielder Rafina Alcantara-- brother of Bayern Munichs Thiago-- fired in a cross that had taken a deflection to catch goalkeeper Roberto Fernandez out of position. Celta wasted a slew of chances to double its lead. Alex Lopez hit the post in the 35th before missing again from close range, while striker Charles squandered three excellent looks on goal. Granada forward Francisco "Piti" Medina volleyed home the 62nd-minute equalizer on the run, arriving from the right side to lash Brayan Angulos bouncing cross into the net. The visitors did little else in the match. Lopez curled a long strike off the post again in the 68th, as Celta had to settle for the point and an undefeated record of two draws and a win through three rounds. "When a team creates so many scoring chances that are the fruit of good play its a reason to be happy," said Celtas new coach Luis Enrique. "Im not worried about our lack of scoring touch and I congratulated my team for the match. I am more than satisfied because I continue to think that we are on the right path. To be honest, I didnt expect my team to be playing this well at the start of the season." After a dull first half at Jose Zorilla Stadium, Valladolid centre back Marc Valiente scored after Omar Ramos corner was flicked on to the centre of the area by Carlos Pena in the 47th. Valladolid was closer to a second goal than Getafe ever was to the leveler, with Omar shining as a playmaker.

Ronaldo pounced on a loose ball inside the area to net the 82nd-minute equalizer -- his 23rd goal of the season for the league leaders. Karim Benzema put Madrid ahead at the Vicente Calderon Stadium after three minutes but, instead of wilting, Atletico hit back with two goals to take the lead by halftime. Koke smashed a low shot beyond Madrid goalkeeper Diego Lopez, who then watched Gabi Fernandezs swerving effort from 30 metres (yards) fly past him just before the break. Madrid stayed three points ahead of Atletico, but Barcelona was able to cut its deficit to Madrid to one point after a laboured 4-1 win against Almeria at the Camp Nou. Barcelona led 2-0 by the 24th after Alexis Sanchez tapped a rebound into the empty goal before Lionel Messi curled an exquisite left-foot free kick around the defensive wall and into the top of the goal for his 15th league strike of the season. A rout looked in the cards until Angel Trujillo got free to head home a corner in the 27th, and the relegation-threatened club made Barcelona work for its points. Carles Puyol, who had made a rare start, scored an even rarer goal after Messis header came off the bar straight to him in the 83rd minute. Xavi Hernandez scored moments later as the Catalans bounced back from a 3-1 loss to Real Sociedad last weekend. Madrid leads with 64 points, Barcelona has 63, and Atletico is on 61 points. The fifth meeting between crosstown rivals Atletico and Madrid since last Mays Copa del Rey final kept its trademark liveliness and aggression, with Atletico knowing defeat would likely end its dreams of a first title since 1996. "Atletico tried to make the game violent," Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti said. "We dont play that way, however. But they tried right to the end." Atleticos defence played Benzema onside for the France striker too score his 15th of the season, leaving him alone to guide Angel Di Marias cross into the box past goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.dddddddddddd Ugly confrontations followed as both teams used gamesmanship to try and gain an edge, with Arda Turan booked for protesting in the 11th after Sergio Ramos tripped Diego Costa inside the area with no penalty awarded. But Atleticos pressure paid off in the 28th when Turan spotted Koke inside the area to smash past Lopez. Diego Costa, who will play at the Calderon for Spain on Wednesday, was a physical presence and troubled Madrid throughout. Atletico took the lead in first-half stoppage time when Gabis powerful drive beat the slow-footed Lopez for a deserved lead. In the second half, Lopez kept it close as Atletico found space on the counter with Madrid pressing for an equalizer. Despite being outplayed, Madrids attack finally connected when Gareth Bale failed to control a cross but the ball fell to Ronaldo to extend Madrids unbeaten run in all competitions to 28 games. "Atletico played a bruising style right to the end, when we finally got a chance to play and create opportunities," Ancelotti said. Madrid is unbeaten at the Calderon for 15 games, dating to June 1999. "The result is what it is," Atletico coach Diego Simeone said. "We had chances to win it. At least we showed we are still alive in the title race." Ruben Castros late goal gave bottom side Real Betis a 1-1 draw at 10-man Villarreal, which slipped six points from fourth and the final Champions League spot. Betis was left 11 points from safety. Real Sociedad fell seven points behind fourth-place Athletic Bilbao after Kevin Gameiro skipped through a pair of defenders and netted the rebound from his initial shot to lead Sevilla to a 1-0 victory. Joaquin Larrivey scored as Rayo Vallecano climbed within three points of 17th-place Almeria -- and safety from the drop -- with a 1-0 win over Valencia, which played the last 15 minutes with 10 men.
