Cristiano Ronaldo scored on his return from injury as Real Madrid thrashed promoted Osasuna 5-2 at the Bernabéu to equal the club’s 1960-61 record of 15 successive La Liga wins.
Ronaldo started the rout by knocking home an inviting cut-back from Gareth Bale in the sixth minute, with goals from Danilo and Sergio Ramos sending Madrid 3-0 up before the break. Pepe and Luka Modric were also on target before headers from Oriol Riera and David Garcia provided some consolation for the visitors, who saw Roberto Torres miss a 73rd-minute penalty and Cayetano Bonnín sent off in the 80th.
Antoine Griezmann scored twice and set up another to jump start Atlético Madrid’s league title challenge, as they won 4-0 against Celta Vigo.Griezmann’s delicate header into the corner from Saúl Ñíguez’s cross doubled the lead in the 73rd minute, and he followed that with a second header eight minutes later from Juanfran’s cross. Ángel Correa, on as a substitute, scored the fourth.
