Real Madrid boosted their winning streak by securing a 5-0 win against Leganes at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday night.
The significance of this crucial win means that the Los Blancos have moved up to second place on the table in La Liga.
So far, this has been one of their best performance as Karim Benzema found himself in the mix straight away, first playing the ball across the box for Rodrygo to tap into an empty net, before turning provider once more to feed Toni Kroos who doubled the hosts lead inside eight minutes.
Sergio Ramos was in top form as he added a third from the penalty spot on the second attempt, after Juan Soriano was judged to have been off his line when he saved Ramos’ first effort – a penalty which came about after the goalkeeper brought down Eden Hazard.
There was far more intensity from the Cucumber Growers (yes, really) after half-time as Thibaut Courtois was finally called into action, but the spirited response, in truth, didn’t test Madrid beyond a few routine saves.
Any faint hopes of a revival were finally dashed by the excellent Benzema, who slotted home from the spot after Kenneth Omeruo somehow avoided a red card for his foul on Luka Modric in the penalty area.
A fifth goal arrived late on through substitute Luka Jovic – his first in La Liga – in what was a supremely satisfying night for Zinedine Zidane and co.
