Real Madrid won their fourth title of the year by beating Argentine side San Lorenzo to win the Club World Cup in Marrakech on Saturday night.

 

The victory extends Reals winning run to 22 in all competition. Goals from Sergio Ramos and world transfer record signing Gareth Bale completed a comfortable 2-0 victory for Los Blancos.

 

The galacticos began their campaign in the Club World Cup by beating Cruz Azul 4-0 in the semifinals. They went into the finals as heavy favourites to face the South American champions.

 

San Lorenzo know that if Real play anywhere near the way they were playing recently, then the Madrid club will walk with the crown. So they hoped that they heavy favourites tag may work against them the Madrid club.

 

To their dismay though, Real never got complacent and walked past them with real ease. Los Blancos was never at their fluent best but, it was enough for them to register a comfortable victory.

 

It took a while for Real Madrid to open the scoring, as they manged the first goal of the game only in the 37th minute when Sergio Ramos headed the opener from a corner.

 

Ramos who scored the late equaliser to help them win the Champions League final against their rivals Atletico Madrid, once again broke the deadlock with a trademark header. This happens to be his 10th goal in 2014 for the defender who played this match with a thigh injury he suffered in the semis.

 

 

Gareth Bale made it 2-0, six minutes after the break. This happens to be a hattrick of goals for Bale in the finals, as he scored one in the Champions League final and a brilliant solo goal in the Copa Del Ray finals against Barcelona.

 

This also happens to be Toni Kroos hattrick of World Cup titles. The German also won the Club World Cup with Bayern Munich last season and the FIFA World Cup in Brazil this summer.

 

However, the current Ballon d’ Or holder Cristiano Ronaldo was unable to get a goal on the night. If Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid can keep up this form, not many would bet against them defending the Champions League crown for the first time.
