Real Madrid secured a key victory in their La Liga match on Sunday, downing Real Sociedad 3-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium.

Cristiano Ronaldo was on the spot to set up Mateo Kovacic for the match's first goal in the 38th minute and that's where the score stood at the break, reports Efe.

After the break, it was Ronaldo's turn with a nice pop over the opposing goalkeeper in the 50th minute to make it 2-0.

Alvaro Morata scored the third goal in the 83rd minute with a diving header to put the icing on the cake.

Real Sociedad soldiered on with just 10 men from the 74th minute when the referee sent Inigo Martinez off with a second yellow card for fouling Casemiro.

This was Zinedine Zidane's fourth league win in five games and opens up Real Madrid's lead over second placed Barcelona back up to 4 points with a game in hand to boot.

Up next for Real is a trip to Celta Vigo on Sunday, 5th February.
