REAL MADRID CONTINUED their perfect start under new manager Carlo Ancelotti as they beat Athletic Bilbao 3-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday to move alongside Villarreal at the top of La Liga.

After a bright start from the visitors – who had also won their opening two games – Madrid took control midway through the first half and scored the opener when Isco collected Karim Benzema’s lovely scooped pass and squeezed the ball past the Bilbao keeper.

Cristiano Ronaldo then scored for the first time this season when he nodded Angel Di Maria’s free kick home in first half stoppage time and Isco made it 3-0 with a deflected strike in the second period before Ibai Gomez scored a consolation for Athletic late on.
