Early in the second half Ronaldo provided the set-up for Benzema to finish to make it 3-0 before Rodriquez completed his brace four minutes from time as he finished off another move involving Benzema and Ronaldo.

Atletico Madrid ran out 4-2 winners over Cordoba. Antoine Griezmann bagged a brace added to goals from Mario Mandzukic and Raul Garcia, with Nabil Ghilas netting twice for the visitors.
