LA LIGA
Matchday # 7
October 16, 2010

1 – CF Malaga ————— Stadsgaard 55′
4 – Real Madrid ———— Higuain 30′, 65′, Ronaldo 44′, pen 50′

A pair of goals from a pair of World Cup front line players propelled visiting REAL MADRID to a comfortable 4-1 victory over CF MALAGA and lifted Portugese manager JOSE MOURINHO’s side to the summit of Spain’s La Liga.

Real Madrid, who managed to score six goals in the their five league games to open the season, have now rifled home ten goals in last two Primera Division matches.

Portugal World Cup star CRISTIANO RONALDO, who scored 26 goals in 29 league games for Real Madrid a season ago, recorded a brace for a second consecutive La Liga game and assisted on the other two goals for good measure.

The former Manchester United star Ronaldo pushed his season total to six goals in seven Primera Division matches under the ex-Chelsea coach Mourinho’s management.

Argentina World Cup striker GONZALO HIGUAIN, who topped Real Madrid last year with 27 goals in La Liga, also struck twice for the visiting side and now counts four goals in Spain’s top flight this term.

Both Higuain and Germany World Cup midfielder SAMI KHEDIRA, the summer signing from Bundesliga side Vfb Stuttgart, hit the proverbial woodwook for a dominant Real Madrid before the Argentine started the scoring a half an hour into the match.

Denmark international defender KRIS STADSGAARD, a new arrival from Norwegian outfit BK Rosenborg Trondheim, stabbed home a ball for CF Malaga at the far post from a corner kick in the 55th minute to spoil the shutout bid of Spain World Cup champion goalkeeper IKER CASILLAS and register his first career La Liga goal, but the result was never in doubt for Real Madrid.
