Almeria 0-5 Real Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo scored inside three minutes to give Real Madrid the perfect start, converting Isco's right-wing cross with the outside of his boot.

From there los Blancos dominated the game, totaling up 18 shots in the first half alone. Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Ronaldo missed a glut of resulting chances, and Almeria rarely threatened.

Esteban, in goal for Francisco Rodriguez's side, enjoyed a truly excellent 45 minutes, limiting the visitors to just a single strike in the first half.

The contest quickly became a rout, however, inside a short period in the second half. Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale, Isco and Alvaro Morata all scored fine goals to make it 5-0 to the visitors.
