Madrid:

Real Madrid closed the gap on Primera Liga leaders Barcelona to seven points with a clinical 3-0 win over city rivals Atletico, as the Catalans slumped to a 3-0 defeat at Villarreal on Sunday. Real had Brazilian striker Ronaldo and goalkeeper Iker Casillas to thank for their flattering victory over Atletico. The former World Player of the Year grabbed a coolly taken double with his only two chances while Casillas produced a brilliant rearguard action to keep a dominant Atletico at bay. The victory ended Atletico's unbeaten home record this season and former player Santiago Solari compounded their misery by notching Real's second goal in another isolated attack. Barca lost 3-0 to Villarreal at El Madrigal. (AP)
