Villa scored in the 82nd minute of Atletico Madrid's 2-0 win over Athletic Bilbao on Sunday.

Villa earned two penalty kicks for Atletico Madrid and converted the second during Thursday's 2-1 win over Granada.

Diego Costa converted Atleti's first penalty for his 12th goal of the season. Villa's shot from the spot was his fifth score this season and third in his last two Liga contests. The combination of Costa and Villa has been a dream for the club this season, as they currently sit second in the table behind Villa's old club, Barcelona.

Villa opened the scoring against his old club Wednesday, although Atleti couldn't hang on, giving up a goal to Neymar at 66 minutes. Villa will continue to be an important part of Atletico Madrid's attack, as he looks to increase his scoring output after knocking in 10 goals last year.

Villa has joined Atletico Madrid on a 4 million move from Barcelona, the Daily Mail reports.

There was plenty of interest in Villa from a few Premier League clubs, notably Tottenham and Arsenal, but the striker decided to stay in Spain instead. The 31-year old is still quite talented, although he became expendable at Barca with the club's signing of Neymar.
