  • Vinicius tries to escape on the break, but Piccini decides to halt his run by the halfway line and hauls the Brazilian back. That's a yellow card for the Valencia defender.

  • MADRID DOUBLE UP! With typical directness and a small slice of fortune, Vinicius extends the hosts' lead. Combining with Benzema on the edge of the box, he then dances through some slack Valencia challenges to force his way through and slot the ball home from no more than 10 yards. 2-0 to Madrid, and they are in complete control!

  • THREE FOR MADRID! Suddenly, the hosts look like they can score every time they go forward, and Vinicius taps in his second goal from close range after Cillessen can only parry Asensio's right-sided shot into his path. That was as simple as it gets - surely that's game over now!

  • VALENCIA GET ONE BACK! Guedes misses from the spot, but is first to react when Courtois makes the save low down to his right and prods home the visitors' first goal of the game. It's all too late for Valencia, though that offers some small consolation.

  • 4-1 MADRID! Slipping his marker before turning neatly to evade a desperately back-tracking Gaya, the cool-headed Benzema takes an extra touch before firing into the bottom corner from the centre of the box. That's his second and his team's fourth! Los Blancos are going eight points clear at the top!
