La Liga: Real Madrid defeat Elche 2-0

  • Cristiano Ronaldo headed one in and played a role in setting up the other goal as Real Madrid defeated Elche 2-0 to again stay four points ahead of Barcelona in the La Liga.

    Real’s victory came after Barcelona’s shocking 1-0 defeat against Malaga on Saturday.

    The first half was somewhat frustrating for Real, with both Ronaldo and Gareth Bale missing chances.

    Karim Benzema scored the opener in the 56th minute before Ronaldo made it 2-0 in the 69th minute.
