Real Madrid maintained their commanding lead at the top of the La Liga after cruising to a 5-0 win over Espanyol on home soil.

Cristiano Ronaldo took his goal tally this season to 30 when he opened the scoring in the 23rd minute and Sami Khedira doubled the lead seven minutes before the interval.

Gonzalo Higuaín struck from close range two minutes into the second half before Kaká made it 4-0 in the 66th minute with a well-deserved goal.

Higuaín completed the rout with 12 minutes remaining to seal Madrid's 12th win in 13 league games at the Bernabéu this season.
