Madrid: Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale had a perfect return to action after three games out through injury, with a goal and an assist as Los Blancos moved to the top of La Liga on Saturday.

Madrid's 4-2 win over Villarreal at the Santiago Bernabeu coupled with Atletico Madrid's 2-0 defeat at Almeria allowed Real to go above Atletico just three days after they had also dealt Diego Simeone's side a 3-0 defeat in the first leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final.

Bale opened the scoring with his 11th goal of the season before teeing up Karim Benzema to make it 2-0 inside the first 25 minutes.
