David Villa did his part to keep Atletico Madrid's title hopes alive by bagging a brace in just a two-minute span against Celta Vigo. 

His first, in the 63rd minute, he was set free and slotted home a low shot to the near post. 


Villa's second, only a minute later, the ball was expertly cut back to him in the 18-yard box and he was able to give Atletico more breathing room with a two-goal advantage. 


Villa's goals were decisive, as Atletico held on to win 2-0 to go level on points with leaders Real Madrid, albeit, their Madrid rivals have a match in hand.
