Real Madrid kept on track with the two leaders after they beat sixth placed Real Sociedad 0-4 to remain in third spot, two points behind Barcelona in the rankings. The early chances fell to the locals, Xabi Alonso lucky to be let off a penalty appeal for hands, and Griezmann heading just over the bar. With the first half coming to a close though Bravo could only push out a shot from Benzema, and Illarramendi (making his first appearance in Anoeta since his move to Madrid in the summer) was on hand to turn the rebound in to the net. Ronaldo had been left back at home after aggravating an injury in the midweek Champions League game, but he was not missed as Ancelotti’s side took control after the break, Ramos and Benzema both hitting the bar and Bravo doing well to keep out an Alonso free kick. Soon afterwards though the keeper kicked his clearance straight at Gareth Bale, who quickly fired a long shot back in to the net for his side’s second. That took the wind out of the sails of the home side, and Madrid added two more in the last ten minutes or so, Pepe turning in the third after Ramos headed back a corner, and substitute Morata running on to Di María’s through ball to wrap things up.
