Despite Real Madrid recording a comfortable 4-1 win away to Malaga, a result which puts them top of La Liga, coach Jose Mourinho was not at all happy about conceding a goal. Two goals before half time, one from Gonzalo Higuain and the other from Cristiano Ronaldo, saw Real go into the break 2-0 ahead and cruising.

In he second half Ronaldo was again on the scoresheet from the spot after 50 minutes, but a goal from Malaga five minutes afterwards meant Real had to work to make sure the victory was secure, before adding a fourth in the 65th minute through Higuain again.

"I do not like Malaga’s goal", said Mourinho. "Alright, you have to give credit to them as a team, who have certainly worked hard on their move and succeeded. [But], my team knew this move, and knew what to do. We knew the play of Malaga but seemed to relax a little. It would have been better for us if the game was [completely] dead because we play again on Tuesday, and that goal made us work harder."

Mourinho’s side host AC Milan, in what looks like the defining match in their Champions League group, on Tuesday.
