Real Madrid controlled the game from the half-hour mark until the break. The Whites played the ball in the oppositions' half of the pitch and bore down on the final third, where their rivals defended extremely tightly, but they were unable to find a way of narrowing the deficit.
Jesé came on for Khedira at the beginning of the second half. The Whites had more muscle in attack and held the majority of the possession, but Griezmann got on the end of a Saúl header in the 67’ to make it 3-0 and further complicate matters for Real Madrid. Mandzukic got the fourth in the 88’. Despite the setback, the Whites remain league leaders and winning La Liga is still in their hands.
