Real Madrid were the big victors on Saturday after they beat Málaga 2-0 to close the gap on top two Barcelona and Atlético, who both dropped points later in the evening. Ancelotti's side dominated the match, with Cristiano Ronaldo hitting the bar and Morata having a headed goal ruled out for offside in the opening minutes. Willy Caballero kept out Ronaldo and Morata later in the first half, and Málaga's only reply was a long shot wide by Eliseu shortly before the break. A minute in to the second half Caballero was beaten by a long cross from Di María which bounced past him in to the net, but after that the visiting keeper made a string of top class saves from Isco, Ronaldo, Jesé and Marcelo to keep his team in the match. Ronaldo and Khedira also had strikes disallowed for offside, but with the game in injury time substitute Bale was bundled over in the area by Weligton, and Ronaldo stepped up to finish things off. Next up Juventus in the Champions League, but on Saturday Madrid visit the Nou Camp, and after today's results a win there could see them level with their arch-rivals in the table.
