Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo in a best friends hug

Real Madrid ran over Getafe at the Santiago Bernabéu, in a 4-0 victory where Benzema, Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo all scored in the first half. The Merengues slowed down things after the break, but the 3 points had already been secured after another hectic week for Madrid...

It was an easy and ultimately necessary victory for Real Madrid today, as they dispatched city rivals Getafe 4-1 at the Santiago Bernabéu, to go up to 2nd place in La Liga (temporarily though, since Atletico only play later this Saturday). The BBC was back today with Karim Benzema scoring a brace, but also Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo contributing with a goal each and helped Madrid romping to a 4-0 lead just after 39 minutes in the first half. Getafe would pull one back during the second half, but the fate of the had already been sealed and Real Madrid managed to ease the atmosphere just a tiny bit for the next few days over the Spanish capital...

All Cristiano Ronaldo actions vs Getafe:

After the debacle of the Copa Del Rey, Madrid needed a good performance in front of their home fans. From the beginning the team looked sharp, putting Getafe on the back foot early. It would only take four minutes to grab the first. A brilliant cross from Pepe was perfectly met by Karim Benzema right outside the six-yard box. The Frenchman, who has been dealing with a series of legal issues in recent weeks, seemed happy to be back on the score sheet, putting those worries behind him.

Benzema would get his second in the 16th, after some patient buildup play from Madrid. After a series of passes in and around the box, James Rodriguez fired in a cross towards Gareth Bale, the ball fell to Ronaldo who couldn't quite get there, but thankfully Benzema swooped in, controlled and fired into the bottom left corner. Sharp play overall from Karim Benzema.

James would again be involved in the third, a long searching cross found the head of Ronaldo, who perfectly headed the ball back to Bale in the box. The Welshman dribbled past his marker and fired a left footed shot into the goal. Perfect team play and Real Madrid were cruising.

Ronaldo would save the best for last. An intricate through ball from Toni Kroos bamboozled the defense and Ronaldo was able to pick the ball up in full stride and fire into the same corner as the previous 2 goals. 4-0 at halftime and Madrid were looking spectacular.

The second half was more subdued, as Madrid took their foot off the gas. Getafe even scored, courtesy of an Alexis header midway through the half, but Shakthar this was not, as Real Madrid tightened up and saw the game through.

A few observations:

- Lucas Vasquez is a fantastic squad player. He deputized well today at right back. His workrate and effort is never to be questioned. Perhaps he would be a better fit on the right, whenever Dani Carvajal is out. 

- Kroos was solid today. Against weaker opponents, the Kroos-Modric midfield can dominate, but it still shouldn't be used against top teams.

- Good to see the BBC all back and firing again. Now that everyone is fit, Madrid just need to work on playing together as a team and growing with each other.
