Real Madrid thrash Malaga

Real Madrid thrashed Malaga 6-2 to force Barcelona to delay their title winning celebrations.

The hosts got off to the perfect start when Raul Albiol gave them the lead after just two minutes, but Roque Santa Cruz levelled with a quarter of an hour gone.

Sergio Sanchez made his side's task a whole lot harder by getting himself sent off midway through the first half, and Cristiano Ronaldo and Mesut Ozil took advantage of the man advantage by extending Madrid's lead.

Vitorino Antunes pulled a goal back for the visitors but Karim Benzema restored the two-goal advantage before the break, before Luka Modric and Angel Di Maria got involved in the scoring in the second half, while Malaga were further weakened when Martin Demichelis was shown a second yellow card late on.
