Not troubled once in the second-half, but the ‘keeper had a very busy second and was forced into a number of saves, while Griezmann finally got the better of him and lobbed the Madrid man.
Like the other Madrid defenders had an easy afternoon on home turf.
Dealt with the Sociedad attack with ease and never looked too uncomfortable.
Did well as a playmaker just as he did as a defender, playing some good attacking balls whilst keeping the opposition at bay.
Picked up a yellow for a silly challenge just outside his own area, but made up for it with strong defending and clever play.
His goal marked a solid performance in the middle of the park, supplying Bale and company in front with some passes to work with, as well as support behind.
Played some great football out on the right, and was helped massively by Sociedad’s lack of marking on the Welshman.
The former Liverpool man played solidly and supplied the Madrid attackers with some good passes to play off.
The former Tottenham man was in good form and always in the mix. Worked well with Bale and Ronaldo, as well Benzema ahead.
The Portugal international’s sixth hat trick of the season gave Madrid a very strong position in this game and is was all very easy for the attacker for the first two while a perfect free kick in the second half sealed a wonderful performance.
The Frenchman put in a sublime ball for Ronaldo to open his scoring, before grabbing his own with a calm finish.
Was easily the busier ‘keepers, but didn’t match his game to that of the Madrid attackers as they ran riot. The five goals were by no means easy to stop, but there were certainly occasions where a better effort could have been made.
Not the easiest of afternoons, as he battled against the might of the Madrid attackers such as Bale and Modric with largely negative outcomes.
The Roma loanee struggled with the strength and skill of the hosts’ players and was constantly outdone around the Sociedad area.
The center back did little to cull the threat of Madrid’s numerous attacks and looked hesitant when clearing the ball around the home team’s players.
The likes of Bale, Modric and Ronaldo were on top form and it was always going to be difficult for the likes of Martinez to battle against their combined skill and it showed.
Madrid’s midfield was by far the dominant force and Elustondo could do little to halt its progress.
Club captain Prieto was always looking to get Sociedad moving up the pitch and sometimes succeeded, but to little avail.
Conceded a penalty to hand Madrid their second goal, but was unlucky to have such a judgment placed upon him as the defender had little choice but to touch the ball with his arm. However, Bergara was unable to halt the attacks of Madrid elsewhere and had a tough afternoon.
Almost completely absent in the first half and was subsequently subbed at the break.
Sociedad’s best player, Griezmann had the best of the visitor’s chances and made one pay with his lob over Diego Lopez for his side’s consolation goal.
One of Sociedad’s more active players, Vela had his share of chances but failed to make them pay off, with one particular effort in the second half requiring more accuracy to make it count.
