Unstoppable Real Madrid Crush Ludogorets

Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale struck in the first half to help give Real Madrid a 4-0 win over Ludogorets and make it six wins out of six in Champions League Group B.

The defending European champions were guaranteed top spot but recorded maximum points for the second time in their history after further goals from Alvaro Arbeloa and Alvaro Medran sealed victory.

Ludogorets saw Marcelinho sent off midway through the first half and missed out on the Europa League as they struggled to contain the quality of the Spanish giants.

Amid early pressure from Real, Ludogorets’ slim hopes of taking anything from the Santiago Bernabeu diminished with the loss of a man and a goal in quick succession.

Marcelinho – on target in the reverse fixture – handled Raphael Varane’s goalbound header to earn a straight red card before Ronaldo converted the penalty to move past club legend Raul to outright second in the competition’s record scorers list with his 72nd Champions League goal.

Bale doubled the advantage late in the first half with a header from Toni Kroos’ corner before Arbeloa added a third 10 minutes from time with his first goal in over a year.

Young midfielder Medran added a touch of gloss to a straightforward outing with a late strike – his first at senior level – as Real eased to a 19th straight win in all competitions – breaking Barcelona’s Spanish record for consecutive victories.
