Another big win for Real Madrid in the Bernabeu, Mourinho's side beating Racing Santander 4-0 on Saturday evening to increase their lead at the top to 13 points pending Barcelona's game against Valencia on Sunday. Cristiano Ronaldo headed against the post from Kaká's corner before opening the scoring in the sixth minute, heading the ball in on the far post after Kaká headed across. Racing's only reply was a wide Diop free kick which Casillas dealt with comfortably, and the Cantabrians were left with ten men when Cisma was shown a rigorous second yellow card after Ronaldo's cross brushed his arm. That ended any hope of resistance, and Benzema made it two on the stroke of half time after Xabi Alonso put him through. Di María came on in the second half for his first appearance after a long injury lay-off, and within ten minutes he had his name on the scoresheet after cutting in from the right wing to beat Toño with an angled shot. And Benzema rounded things off with his second of the night after Toño had saved from Di María to make it 18 league wins in the last 19 games. The one they lost was of course against Barça, but with such a big gap between the two sides that doesn't hurt as much now as it did back then.
