Real Madrid ease to CWC victory over Cruz Azul

Real Madrid thumped Cruz Azul 4-0 in their Club World Cup semifinal.

Real eased into the final of the Club World Cup after a 4-0 win over Cruz Azul at the Le Grand Stade de Marrakech in Morocco.

Goals came from Sergio Ramos and Karim Benzema in the first half before Gareth Bale and Isco added to their tally in the second.

Real coach Carlo Ancelotti said: "We had the right amount of quality for this competition. We were strong, focused and organised. The team behaved fantastically out there. They are prepared and always give their best.

"We played a serious game. We started well from the outset. We scored early on and that made things easier for us. They could have minimised our advantage, but Casillas saved the penalty and in the second half we killed the game off on the counter attack with two goals. The pitch was perfect."
