Real Madrid enjoyed a goal fest that cleared all doubts about their estate of form. A four-goal haul from Cristiano Ronaldo, a hat-trick from Karim Benzema and a goal from Mateo Kovacic saw Los Blancos emphatically beat Malmo 8-0.
The Portugal international became the top scorer ever in the Champions League group stage after scoring his 11th this season.
Los Merengues took the lead after 12 minutes as Benzema converted from close range after Isco had an effort blocked on the line.
Ten minutes later, the Frenchman had his second after heading a superb cross from Ronaldo into the top corner.
Ronaldo made it 3-0 before the break with a free kick thanks to a goalkeeping error, however, as Wiland allowed the Portuguese’s strike to find the bottom corner.
The 30-year-old scored again with two minutes on the second half, as he converted from close range after Isco had an effort blocked straight into the Portuguese’s path.
The Los Blancos star scored two more before the hour mark. First he netted from inside the box after shifting the ball past two defenders. Minutes later, he turned a low Isco cross into the back of the net.
Kovacic joined the goal fest and swept home from inside the box after Wiland had kept out a low effort from Jese Rodriguez.
Benzema had his hat-trick after finding all sorts of space inside the Malmo box and finishing into the bottom corner. Just like during the rest of the game, it was terrible defending from the visitors.
