Real Grind Out Victory At Elche

Spanish La Liga

Result: Elche 0-2 Real Madrid

Date: 22 February 2015

Venue: Estadio Martinez Valero

Goals from Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo handed Real Madrid a 2-0 win over Elche in their La Liga clash on Sunday night.

Real boss, Carlo Ancelotti, stuck with the front three from the game against Schalke, while Lucas Silva kept his spot in the line-up alongside Toni Kroos and Isco.

Madrid went on the attack right from the onset and nearly went ahead in the fourth minute, as Cristiano Ronaldo struck the upright with a curling effort from 12-yards out.

Madrid's top goal-scorer should have broken the deadlock in the 20th minute, Gareth Bale picked out the Portuguese forward, who failed to hit the target with the goal at his mercy.

The home side sat back for most of the first half and were quiet happy to let Real dictate play.

Los Blancos eventually broke the deadlock 10 minutes after the halftime break, as Karim Benzema turned home Ronaldo's cross.

Madrid pushed for a second and were rewarded in the 68th minute courtesy of a thumping header from Ronaldo, after some good work by Isco down the left flank.

Carlo Ancelotti's men have now moved four points clear of rivals Barcelona, who fell to Malaga on Saturday.
