MADRID, Feb. 9 (Xinhua) -- Real Madrid warmed up for Wednesday' s Champions League match at home to Manchester United with a comfortable win at home to a conformist Sevilla.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat-trick after Karim Benzema had opened the scoring for Madrid after the ball fell kindly to him following a Ronaldo cross from the left.
Ronaldo' s first goal was a magnificent left foot shot from outside of the Sevilla area, his second was the result of some poor defending from Madrid' s rivals.
The former Manchester United striker' s third goal came with 20 minutes remaining, while Manu Del Moral netted a late consolation for Sevilla.
Both sides ended up with a player less after Gonzalo Higuain was sent off for Madrid and Hedwinges Maduro also saw red for Sevilla.
This Saturday saw five games in the BBVA Primera Liga, which kicked off with Gregorio Manzano seeing his side scrape a last minute point in their home game against Osasuna.
Manzano returned for his third spell as Mallorca coach following Joaquin Caparros' sacking in the week, but a dull game saw his side fall behind to a Lolo header with 13 minutes remainng.
Mallorca took a point when defender Pedro Geromel looped a header home after a defensive mix-up from the Osasuna defense in the 92nd minute.
Struggling Celta Vigo worked hard in the first half of their game at home to an improving Valencia, but ran out of steam and Nelson Valdez' s fifth goal of the season in the last minute of injury time gave Valencia a 1-0 win to lift Ernesto Valverde' s side into a place that would qualify them for the Champions League.
Malaga' s excellent season continued with a 2-1 win away to Levante who had taken the lead with a 27th minute Jose Barquero penalty before Ozco, who made is Spain debut against Uruguay in midweek turned the game around with a 36th minute penalty and a winning goal two minutes after halftime.
Finally Deportivo la Coruna look doomed to relegation after suffering a 3-0 home defeat to fellow strugglers, Granada. All of the goals came in the second half with a Carlos Marchena own goal a minute after the break putting Granada ahead a minute after the break.
Jude Ighalo made it 2-0 just after the hour after Manuel Pablo had been sent off to leave Deportivo with a player less and Siquiera netted a late penalty to seal the win.
