Real Madrid 3 – Sporting Gijon 1 (La Liga, April 14, 2012) (Longer highlights.) The Bernabeu was stunned on the half hour as Miguel De las Cuevas converted a penalty for 1-0 Sporting. Seven minutes later it was 1-1 as Sergio Ramos crossed for Gonzalo Higuain to equalise. The score stayed level until the 74th minute when Cristiano Ronaldo headed home his 41st La Liga goal of the season – a new league record. Five minutes later Canella was sent off and on 82 it was game over as Karim Benzema scored the third and Real Madrid’s 107th goal of the season.
One of the highlights of the first half was a crazy reaction from Jose Mourinho to a Pepe foul.
