The former Manchester United man’s five-goal haul takes him ahead of Madrid legends Raul and Alfredo di Stefano to become the club’s all-time leading scorer in La Liga with 330 goals. "Someone who scores so many goals has their place in history forever like Raul or Di Stefano," said Madrid boss Rafael Benitez.
Paco Alcacer struck in the 90th minute to snatch all three points for Valencia at Sporting Gijon.

David Moyes has admitted that he is "concerned" about Real Sociedad’s lack of goals following their 1-0 defeat to Real Betis in La Liga on Saturday.

Full-time at the Cornellà-El Prat and Rafa Benitez's 'boring' Real Madrid claim all three points with an easy 6-0 win. Ronaldo helped himself to five and laid on one for Benzema as a lacklustre Espanyol rolled over. Gareth Bale didn't get on the scoresheet, but he created two for Ronaldo and played a part in Benzema's goal. Three games into the La Liga season and Madrid have scored 11, conceded none.
A FIFA agent has claimed "if Carlo Ancelotti stayed at Real Madrid," Lazio would likely have sold Felipe Anderson this summer."In April Ancelotti was telling me all about him.

The hostile environment Cristiano Ronaldo created at Real Madrid forced Gareth Bale to go and see a psychiatrist, according to the Daily Mail. The Welshman's good start to the season has come thanks to Jamie Edwards, a former basketball player who helps sports stars prepare mentally.
