MADRID- It was Angel Di Maria doing the love heart celebrations at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday night after his man-of-the-match performance eased Real Madrid to a 4-0 win.
Cristiano Ronaldo celebrated 100 games in European competition with a double but it was Di Maria who took full advantage of Gareth Bale’s absence by netting the third and fourth as well as providing a spectacular assist for the second.
Ronaldo took his overall goal tally to 212 in 208 games for Madrid – the former Manchester United forward has now scored 40 goals in 42 Champions League games for Real.
Madrid took the three points with a largely flat performance.
