Ronaldo sees red

A penalty after just three minutes saw Córdoba take the lead against Real Madrid in a match which saw both sides reduced to ten men.

Benzema levelled matters in the 27th minute and the next action was Ronaldo being ordered from the pitch for lashing out at Edimar.

However, Fede Cartabia handled the ball in the area which resulted in a penalty to Real and his dismissal from the pitch. Gareth Bale converted the spot kick to see the visitors just scrape through.

Barcelona only had one shot at goal in the first half against Elche, but Pique made it count. Messi with two, Neymar with two and Pedro added five more in the second half to make the final score 0-6. Elche, however, were only playing with ten men after Fajr was sent for an early bath.
