Corrigan: Real romp without Ronaldo

La Liga

Chicharito should leave Real Madrid


Player Ratings: Karim Benzema leads the fightback for Real Madrid

Karim Benzema was the man of the match as Real Madrid survived an early scare to overcome Real Sociedad.

A Karim Benzema-inspired Real Madrid came from behind to eventually see off David Moyes' Real Sociedad side 4-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday afternoon and retain their place at La Liga's summit.

Gorka Elustondo headed the visitors into a shock lead inside the first minute to stun the hosts but James Rodriguez equalised before on-song Benzema took over in the second half.

The striker scored a brace that allowed Madrid to made amends for their 4-2 loss in the reverse fixture at Anoeta earlier...

Real Madrid rout Real Sociedad without Cristiano Ronaldo

James Rodriguez scored early as Real Madrid gave David Moyes an unhappy visit to the Bernabeu.

MADRID -- Three quick thoughts from the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu as La Liga leaders Real Madrid got an early scare but ran out easy 4-1 winners against David Moyes' Real Sociedad.

1. Madrid get it done without Ronaldo

When Cristiano Ronaldo was sent off last weekend for kicking an opponent at Cordoba, a three-game ban was immediately feared. Controversially, the verdict was just a two-game suspension, which was greeted with relief as it meant he would be back for next weekend's "derbi" at Atletico...

David Moyes is like Jose Mourinho, says Real Sociedad's Esteban Granero

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno talks David Moyes' chances of upsetting a Real Madrid side without Cristiano Ronaldo.

Few players in football have worked under as many top managers as Esteban Granero. Still only 27, the former Real Madrid starlet has already taken tactical instructions and listened to motivational speeches from the likes of Michael Laudrup, Manuel Pellegrini, Jose Mourinho, Harry Redknapp and now David Moyes at Real Sociedad.

Granero's winding career path has already taken him through the Bernabeu youth system, a breakout spell at Getafe, three up-and-down seasons in the Madrid first team, a less...

Real Madrid must win convincingly in order to avoid another 'crisis'

The ESPN FC team cast their votes for FIFA president, discuss who will win the UEFA Champions League and reveal the team they would most like to play for in the MLS.
The ESPN FC crew discuss Cristiano Ronaldo's two-game ban for kicking an opponent.

It doesn't take much to whip up a crisis at Real Madrid, even if they are predominantly created by the more hysterical sections of the pro-Bernabeu media.

At the outset of the current season, a 4-2 loss at Anoeta and subsequent defeat at the hands of Atletico had headline writers locking the caps button in barely disguised horror: with three matches of the Liga campaign played, Carlo Ancelotti's side sat in 13th place with three points from a possible nine. Catastrophe was written large on the front...

Chelsea to test Real Madrid's resolve with audacious move for Sergio Ramos

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti discusses the Lucas Silva move to Real Madrid, where he will serve as a defensive specialist in the centre of the park.

The winter window is now open, and that means the LIVE transfer blog swings back into action. Find out the latest news, gossip and deals here.

TOP STORY: Chelsea in talks with Ramos' agent?

Sergio Ramos is never one to back down from a confrontation, and it seems Chelsea might look to capitalise on his current contract impasse with Real Madrid.

The Daily Express reported Jose Mourinho will seek to add Ramos to his leaky back line, with the Blues inquiring with the player's agent as to whether...

Bale capable of plugging gap left by suspended Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo has received a 2-match ban for lashing out at an opponent at Cordoba on the weekend, but will be available for the Atletico Madrid clash.

It took Gareth Bale six minutes to step into Cristiano Ronaldo's boots and save Real Madrid from a surprise stalemate at struggling, albeit in-form, Cordoba at the weekend.

Carlo Ancelotti's side looked set to drop five points from a possible 12 in La Liga since the turn of the year with the clock ticking over to 88 minutes and the league leaders without talisman Cristiano Ronaldo, who had been sent for an early shower for lashing out at Cordoba defender Edimar. Madrid were frustrated, arguably...
