Cristiano Ronaldo provided the only goal of the game as Real Madrid maintained their 3 point advantage over rivals Athletico at the top of La Liga.

In a performance that was hardly vintage Real, Ronaldo ensured the Madrid giants remained top of the table with a goal in the 23rd minute to give them a 1-0 win over Malaga.

Atletico Madrid kept pace with the leaders on Saturday as they held off Espanyol, 1-0, Diego Costa getting on the score sheet in the 55th minute.
