Real Madrid Rolls Over Las Palmas 3-0 (VIDEO)

MADRID – Real Madrid finally secured a win after two consecutive losses, downing lowly Las Palmas 3-0 in Spanish First Division soccer action at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium on Sunday.

Real Madrid’s Casemiro got the team on the board in the first half and then Marco Asensio and Isco added tallies of their own in the second.

With the win, Zinedine Zidane’s boys are eight points in back of La Liga leader Barcelona after 11 matches.

The Catalonian team defeated Sevilla 2-1 on Saturday to keep a four-point advantage over No. 2 Valencia, which blanked Leganes 3-0 for its seventh straight La Liga victory.

Madrid came out guns a-blazing in its contest against Las Palmas and took control right from the opening whistle, but it took them until just before the break to score on Casemiro’s header in the 41st minute.

After the half, Asensio blasted an unstoppable powerhouse shot into the top corner of the net in the 54th minute and Isco knocked in the third goal on a great assist by Cristiano Ronaldo as the game wound down in the 74th minute.

With their tallies on Sunday, Asensio and Isco both have four goals so far this season and are the leading scorers in league play.

After the loss, Las Palmas is next-to-last in the standings with just six points.

The match was played before some 67,000 fans, and a minute of silence was observed before play started in memory of former Real Madrid player Manuel Sanchis.
