Playing first on Saturday, Real Madrid had the opportunity to take the lead in La Liga waiting for Barcelona (who play against Real Sociedad at 7pm) and Atletico Madrid who face Osasuna on Sunday. The Merengues have not missed their target, winning well ahead of Elche 3-0.
Still without Ronaldo whose call for cancellation of his last game suspension was rejected, Ancelotti’s men did not have the trouble to win. Illaramendi with his first goal for Real puts side up before the break. On resumption, Gareth Bale sends a shot of beauty in cages Manu Herrera.
Off the bench, Isco took part in the celebration at the end of a play. Real Madrid took the lead in the league for a few hours.
