Captain Sergio Ramos put Madrid in the lead before the break

Real Madrid extended their lead over Barcelona in the La Liga title race, after coming from behind to thrash Osasuna 4-1 on Sunday.

Unai Garcia opened scoring for the hosts in the 14th minute, forcing Zinedine Zidane coached Madrid to step up their acts.

They were rewarded with two quick-fire efforts by Isco and Ramos, that handed them control of the match before the break.

Isco’s 33rd-minute volley levelled the game and Madrid captain Sergio Ramos made it 2-1 to the visitors five minutes later.

Lucas Vazquez wrapped up the points after linking with Karim Benzema with six minutes remaining, and Luka Jovic made it four in the second minute of stoppage time.
