Real Madrid solidified their position at the top of the La Liga table with a win over Sporting Gijon at the Santiago Bernabeu with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring twice for the Galacticos.

Atletico Madrid returned to winning ways in La Liga with a 3-0 victory over Osasuna, while Celta Vigo saw off bottom side, Granada. Alaves shocked fourth-placed Villarreal as they won 2-0 at El Madrigal.

Malaga were involved in a dramatic encounter against Deportivo, which they managed to win 4-3, thanks to a stoppage time goal by Javi Ontiveros. There were wins for Sevilla who defeated Valencia and Las Palmas who came out on top against Athletic Bilbao.
