Real Madrid secured a significant victory over their opponents, Almeria, in the 32nd round of the Spanish soccer league. The victory was largely due to the impressive performance of their star and captain, Karim Benzema, who scored a hat-trick. He opened the scoring in the fifth minute, added a second goal in the 17th minute, and completed his hat-trick from a penalty kick in the 42nd minute. Rodrigo scored the fourth goal for Real Madrid in the 47th minute. Vinicius Marquez and Lucaris Roberton scored two consolation goals for Almeria in injury time. Real Madrid now have 68 points, eight points behind Barcelona, who will play against Real Betis later on Saturday. Almeria remain in fifteenth place with 33 points.
