Ronaldo on target as Real madrid defeated Las Palmas

La Liga

Result: Real Madrid 3-1 Las Palmas

Date: 31 October 2015

Venue: Santiago Bernabeu

Real Madrid managed to get a 3-1 win over Las Palmas to maintain their position at the top of the La Liga standings.

Los Blancos wasted little time in taking the lead as they netted the opener in only the fourth minute. A poor clearance from Javi Varas gave the ball to Casemiro who found Isco at the back post. The former Malaga man made no mistake with the finish.

The lead was doubled 10 minutes later as Cristiano Ronaldo joined in on the goal scoring. Marcelo sent a lovely cross to the far post from the left flank and picked out Ronaldo who bulleted home the header.
The visitors got themselves back into the game in the 38th minute. El Zhar swung a corner kick into the area where Hernan rose highest to glance a header home.

However, Benitez's charges responded almost immediately to restore their two-goal cushion just before the break. Jese beat another defender on the left flank before firing home a great strike into the far corner of the goal.
Here's how they lined up:

Real Madrid: Casillas, Varane, Nacho, Ronaldo, Kroos, Marcelo, Casemiro, Modric, Jese, Isco, Danilo

Las Palmas: Varas, Bigas, Artilles, Garrido, Simon, Mesa, Gomez, El Zhar, Hernan, Viera, Jose
