Real Madrid thrash Valencia

3:04 pm on 21 January 2013

The Spanish football club, Real Madrid have put their disappointing first half of the season behind them as they put five goals past Valencia in the first half.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Angel Di Maria both hit braces and Gonzalo Higuain was also on target in the first-half goal romp.

However, there is still little hope of them retaining their title as they trail Barcelona by 15 points, despite the Catalan side losing 3-2 against Real Sociedad.

Real Madrid are also seven points off neighbours Atletico Madrid, who beat Levante 2-0 earlier Sunday.
