Ronaldo, Higuain lead Madrid to win over Santander

Cristiano Ronaldo and Gonzalo Higuain scored as Real Madrid beat Racing Santander 2-0 on Sunday to ensure it stayed tied with Barcelona at the top of the Spanish league ahead of their match next weekend.
Ronaldo scored from the penalty spot in the 23rd minute, firing his 18th goal of the season past Fabio Coltorti after being tripped as he broke into the area.
Jose Maria "Guti" Gutierrez sent Higuain clear on Coltorti in the 76th minute for the Argentina striker to score his 24th of the season.
Madrid's players failed to create much going forward, appearing to have next Saturday's game at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium on their minds.
Madrid and Barcelona both have 77 points but Madrid is ahead on goal difference.
