Real Madrid extended their lead at the top of the Primera Liga on Sunday following a hard-fought 1-0 win at home to relegation-threatened Real Murcia.

The hosts were forced to play most of the game with 10 men after full-back Miguel Torres was sent off for a badly-timed tackle from behind on Dani Aquino after 19 minutes.

But Bernd Schuster´s side sealed an important victory thanks to Wesley Sneijder´s 54th-minute strike to move nine points clear of second-placed Barcelona.
