Barcelona completely obliterated Huesca as they marched on into the next round of the Copa del Rey. Real Madrid were in Cruz mode as they thrashed Mexican side Cruz Azul.

Cruz Azul v Real Madrid
A goal each from Gareth Bale, Isco, Sergio Ramos and three time French player of the year Karim Benzema saw them home comfortably and have one hand on the FIFA Club World Cup. Cristiano Ronaldo provided two assist as Carlo's man faced no problems. Iker Casillas managed a clean sheet for the first time in the competition having conceded five goals previously. A penalty save from Gerardo Torrado who is the top scorer in the tournament, his second in the week made it all sweeter.

Two relegation threatened sides faced off against each other and managed to provide an entertaining contest. Hamburg and Stuttgart faced off as the bottom side managed a win thanks to a horrendous error from Behrami which saw Klein find the bottom of the corner off a Maxim pass. It was a tough match and Stuttgart had to hang on in the end as they faced a flurry of attacks from the Hamburg side. The win took them off them off the bottom and out the drop zone. Hanover managed to break a four game losing streak by giving Augsburg their second defeat in a week.

At the other end Bayern have extended the lead to twelve in the Bundesliga, and are cruising. The Bavarians have also just conceded three goals in sixteen matches. Their defense and Manuel Neuer are usually passengers in most contests. FC Kiln failed to beat Mainz and remain in mid table.

The Bundesliga will stay with Pep Guardiola's men, Real Madrid set to lift Club World Cup as Barcelona look to continue their identity search.
