Cristiano Ronaldo scores hat trick in 1-4 win over Atletico Madrid

The pressure was on Real Madrid, just one day after Barcelona's win over Getafe. But Cristiano Ronaldo proved tonight that the word "losing" is not part of his dictionary.

Real Madrid was far superior than
Atletico Madrid, and the three-goal difference could have been even bigger. Cristiano netted three impressive goals and assisted Callejon for the fourth one. Falcao scored for the locals, but that was clearly not enough.

Madrid remains four points ahead of Barcelona, and this time they are the favorite ones to win the title.

Madrid dropped two points against brave Valencia


Real Madrid could not get three points at home, as they were held by an impressive Valencia, for a final 0-0 result. Despite the goal-less end, the game was intense and breathtaking.

Goalkeepers Iker Casillas and Vicente Guaita were the men of the game for their teams. They stopped everything that blasted against their goals. But the posts helped too.

Benzema and Ronaldo were Mourinho's key strikers for this match. But both suffered the tough defenders and a lack of precission.

With this result, Real Madrid is only four points ahead of Barcelona, and there are still six games left to go.
