Lucas Vazquez and Marcos Asensio on target as Real Madrid beat Celta Vigo 2-0 to move top of La Liga.
The visitors arrived in Madrid unbeaten since 21 November but were behind after six minutes when Lucas Vazquez headed home Asensio’s cross.
Celta, who lost La Liga top scorer Iago Aspas to injury early in the second half, rarely posed a threat.
Santi Mina went closest when he swept a shot wide from the edge of the area.
Victory lifted Real Madrid one point clear of Atletico Madrid at the top of the table, although Diego Simeone’s side have three games in hand and travel to Alaves on Sunday.
