Real Madrid are going from strength to strength under José Mourinho, and they consolidated their place at the top of the table with an impressive 6-1 win over Racing Santander. Higuaín started things off, running on to Di María's long ball to fire a shot under Toño. But after that Cristiano Ronaldo took over to score four times, turning in crosses from Higuaín, Özil and Di María to complete a hat-trick either side of half time, and then converting a penalty after Özil was brought down by Cisma. Özil himself got the sixth after Xabi Alonso set him up, and Rosenberg got a late consolation for the Cantabrians without knowing too much about it, Diop's shot hitting him on the back and deflecting in to the net.
