Real blanks Sporting Gijon 3-0 to extend streak
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 04 - 12 - 2011

Angel di Maria scored and set up a goal by Cristiano Ronaldo as Real Madrid beat Sporting Gijon 3-0 to extend the Spanish league leader's winning streak to 14 games in all competitions.
The victory kept Madrid six points ahead of Barcelona, which has played an extra game, with the defending champion set to play Levante later Saturday.
Di Maria's goal in the 34th stood out in an otherwise dull first half that saw more bookings than scoring chances.
The Argentina winger then produced the through ball for Ronaldo to put the game at El Molinon stadium beyond doubt in the 64th with his league-leading 17th goal before Marcelo capped the win in stoppage time.
Racing Santander beat Villarreal 1-0.
Ribery and Robben dazzle
Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben hit two goals apiece as Bayern Munich went top of the Bundesliga by beating Werder Bremen 4-1 while champion Borussia Dortmund drew 1-1 at Borussia Moenchengladbach Saturday.
Frenchman Ribery fired the first goal after 22 minutes before Werder substitute Markus Rosenberg levelled early in the second half.
Dutchman Robben converted two penalties and Ribery was on target again as Bayern produced a dazzling three-goal blitz in 14 minutes in the second period to move on to 31 points from 15 games and end a two-match losing sequence. “There was a lot of pressure on us and we wanted to win,” Ribery told reporters. “It is not easy to win all the time but we bounced back and reacted well today. I am happy.”
Werder, fourth on 26 points, had Aaron Hunt sent off for a foul late in the game.
Dortmund, who took a first-half lead through Robert Lewandowski before Mike Hanke rifled in a 20-meter equalizer after 72 minutes, and Gladbach both have 30 points.
Hertha Berlin is ninth after being held 1-1 — its third draw in three games — at relegation-threatened Kaiserslautern.
VfL Wolfsburg, who had Makoto Hasebe sent off in the 85th minute, squandered a two-goal lead against Mainz to draw 2-2.
Cologne's Lukas Podolski scored twice, including an 88th-minute equaliser, to rescue a 2-2 draw at VfB Stuttgart.
Christian Gentner struck twice for Stuttgart after Podolski had converted a 15th-minute penalty but the Germany winger then slotted his 11th league goal of the season two minutes from time.
Stuttgart is seventh on 22 points while Cologne is 11th.
On Sunday, fifth-placed Schalke 04 entertain bottom club Augsburg and Hamburg SV host fellow strugglers Nuremberg.
