Braces from Cristiano Ronaldo and Gonzalo Higuain seal an emphatic 5-1 thrashing of Osasuna and send Real Madrid nine points clear.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Gonzalo Higuain each bagged braces as Real Madrid, temporarily at least, extended their lead at the top of La Liga to nine points with an emphatic 5-1 win at Osasuna.

Karim Benzema broke the deadlock after seven minutes, dispatching Ronaldo's deep cross into the far top corner with a wonderful volley.

Ronaldo doubled the lead 37 minutes in with a long-range effort, before Esteban Granero sent Higuain clean through to further extend the advantage three minutes later.

Nino headed a consolation goal just after the break, but Ronaldo restored the three-goal cushion with a thunderous a free kick before supplying the perfect cross for Higuain to nod home his second from close range.
