Villarreal moved top of the Primera Liga for the first time in their history with an impressive win at Racing Santander on Wednesday while Barcelona sounded an ominous warning to the rest with an emphatic 4-1 home win over Real Zaragoza.

With Real Madrid not in action until their match against Real Betis on Thursday night, top spot was up for grabs.

Villarreal grabbed it, for 24 hours at least, with a 2-0 win at Racing. Turkey striker Nihat Kahveci put the visitors ahead just before the break and Giuseppe Rossi added a second after Racing had been reduced to 10-men following the dismissal of midfielder Aldo Duscher.
