MADRID, Dec. 3 (Xinhua) -- Real Madrid chalked up their 14th straight win in all competitions as they enjoyed a hard-fought but ultimately comfortable 3-0 victory against Sporting Gijon.

The balance in a physical first half was tipped 10 minutes before the break when Angel de Maria robbed Sporting full back Damien Suarez before fooling keeper Juan Pablo on his near post.

Juan Pablo was expecting a cross, but De Maria scored with a clever finish with the outside of his left foot.

Sporting tried to get back into the game in the second half, but although the home side worked hard they failed to create clear cut chances to draw level and they were punished again on 64 minutes when De Maria fed Cristiano Ronaldo. Ronaldo took the ball past Juan Pablo and rolled into an the empty net.

Marcelo made it 3-0 with a left foot shot in injury time.

If that result intimidated FC Barcelona, who kicked off straight afterwards, the Catalans didn't show it against Levante as they cruised to a 5-0 win.

Barcelona raced into a 3-0 lead against the side fourth in the table, thanks to two goals from Cesc Fabrigas, who shot calmly home after just three minutes following a Andres Iniesta flick.
