Real Madrid remained third place in La Liga with a comfortable 3-0 defeat of Las Palmas at the Bernabeu on Sunday.
Goals from Casemiro, Marco Asensio and Isco saw the defending champs sail past Pako Ayestaran’s side and stay within eight points of early leaders Barcelona.
It took nearly a half for Real to breakthrough before Casemiro did the honours just four minutes before the break with a close-ranger header from a corner kick.
Asesnio added a touch of brilliance to the match with his strike in the 56th minute — the Spain international sweetly returning a punched goal-line clearance with a rocket into the top corner from some 25 yard away.
And Isco rounded off the scoring in the 74th, when he punched home Cristiano Ronaldo’s perfect cross from close range.
