Marrakech is not bad for a night out, I'm reliably told. So I'm sure Real Madrid's players and staff will find a half-decent bar to have a good old knees up later.

And you can't argue that they don't deserve it. Los Blancos, who now enjoy a two-week break as the Spanish league takes a breather, have finished a marvellous 2014 in style. Four trophies won, plenty of goals scored, several records broken. Even the most ardent Barcelona fan would have to say that deserves a thumbs-up.

We'll back for another European-flavoured live text commentary tomorrow as Spanish champions Atletico Madrid travel to Athletic Bilbao (20:00 GMT). Adios amigos!

Stat attack

Opta Jose: Real Madrid have scored 178 goals in 2014 (all comps), more than any other La Liga side within a calendar year.

FULL-TIME

Roma 0-0 AC Milan

Italian Serie A

Nope, no breakthrough for Roma - but Gervinho goes mighty close. The Ivorian is denied by the feet of Diego Lopez in added time and it ends goalless at the Stadio Olimpico. Roma head into the winter break three points behind league-leaders Juventus after failing to break down the ten-men of AC Milan.

INJURY TIME

Roma 0-0 AC Milan

Italian Serie A

Five minutes for someone to become a hero...

Roma 0-0 AC Milan

Italian Serie A

While the Real Madrid players and staff celebrate their latest success on the pitch in Marrakech, there is less fun on the pitch in Roma. It is a war of attrition as second-placed Roma go hell for leather in search of a late winner.

And it was business as usual for Madrid. The routine win over South American champions was their 22nd straight victory. And it clinched their fourth piece of gleaming silverware in 2014.

CHAMPAGNE MOMENT

Real Madrid 2-0 San Lorenzo

Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti turns to right to, rather formally, shake hands with club legend Fernando Hierro as the final whistle goes. It's only business.

REAL MADRID ARE WORLD CLUB CHAMPIONS!

As if this result was ever in doubt. The referee blows his whistle for the final time and that means Real Madrid have won the the Club World Cup!

INJURY TIME

Real Madrid 2-0 San Lorenzo

Two minutes of stoppage time. Two minutes of stoppage time until Real Madrid are crowned the world club champions.

Roma 0-0 AC Milan

Italian Serie A

It's still goalless in Rome midway through the second half. But Milan are down to 10 men after defender Pablo Armero was booked for a deliberate handball - his second yellow card of the game. Roma have brought on top scorer Adem Ljajic to replace Alessandro Florenzi.

Real Madrid 2-0 San Lorenzo

Home skipper Juan Mercier has got the bit between his teeth now. After that earlier moments ago, he drives forward again and fancies his chances from about 20 yards. This time he doesn't trouble Iker Casillas and the ball skids wide.

GREAT SAVE!

Real Madrid 2-0 San Lorenzo

Now San Lorenzo sting the palms of Madrid keeper Iker Casillas. Midfielder Juan Mercier unleashes a thunderous strike from 20 yards, which forces the Spain keeper into a sprawling save to his left. That would have set up an interesting final few minutes...

FINAL FIVE

Real Madrid 2-0 San Lorenzo

Credit to San Lorenzo though. They are a limited bunch - that's not meant to sound condescending, but they are a million miles away from Madrid - but they have put a real shift in to stop the European champions scoring more.

Karim Benzema runs with the ball

Karim Benzema looks keen to grab himself a slice of the goalscoring pie tonight. He peels off to the left flank again, driving at the full-back, but can't find a white shirt with his cross.

TEN TO GO

Real Madrid 2-0 San Lorenzo

Now Madrid go forward. Karim Benzema sticks on the burners down the left, with Cristiano Ronaldo tagging along for the ride. But the Frenchman cannot pick out his pal and San Lorenzo scramble clear.

Real Madrid 2-0 San Lorenzo

All pretty low-key over the last few minutes. Real are content to keep possession, knocking the ball around at a leisure pace, without really looking that interested in digging out a killer pass forward.

SUBSTITUTION

Real Madrid 2-0 San Lorenzo

Madrid make their second substitution of the night - and again it is a change at the back. Right-back Dani Carvajal, who is on a yellow card, trudges off for Alvaro Arbeloa.

Real Madrid 2-0 San Lorenzo

Another chance at the other end as Madrid threaten to bag a third. Gareth Bale swings in a cross from the right and Karim Benzema diverts it past the wrong side of the post.

To be fair to San Lorenzo, they do manage to push and probe for an opening inside the Madrid half. However, they can't find that cute, killer pass to break Sergio Ramos and company into a cold sweat.

The size of the gulf between these sides is probably best illustrated by the fact that San Lorenzo only have one World Cup player in their ranks - and that is veteran Colombia defender Mario Yepes.

Real Madrid 2-0 San Lorenzo

Twenty minutes to go. Any chance of a miraculous San Lorenzo fightback? No.

SUBSTITUTION

Real Madrid 2-0 San Lorenzo

Freshen up, freshen up. That's the message from the San Lorenzo bench as forward Mauro Matos eagerly runs on to replace Martín Cauteruccio. Meanwhile, the Madrid bench sit back with their feet up and cigars in their mouths.

Sofia Bruenner: We are yet to mention Ronaldo in the game. Stay tuned.

Real Madrid 2-0 San Lorenzo

Is this Iker Casillas's first meaningful save? I think it is you know. The Spain veteran finally gets his sharp, white gloves dirty as he tumbles low to his left to gather Emmanuel Mas's shot from a tight angle on the left.

Carlo Ancelotti looks on

Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti might have to send out a search party soon - has anyone seen Cristiano Ronaldo? The record-breaking superstar is nowhere in sight. Maybe he's preening in the changing room mirror.

Real Madrid 2-0 San Lorenzo

Madrid could fill their Christmas stockings with plenty of goals if they really want to. Perhaps they are feeling rather generous and sparing their Argentine opponents in the season of goodwill. Then, France striker Karim Benzema goes close with a dipping half-volley which flashes past the right-hand post.

HALF-TIME: Roma 0-0 AC Milan

Milan have survived a penalty appeal - when Nigel de Jong slapped a cross away from Gervinho's head - and somewhat weathered the storm at the Stadio Olimpico. Filippo Inzaghi's side could even have taken the lead in spectacular fashion before the break when a Philippe Mexes strike from ten yards inside the Roma half forced ex-Real Madrid stopper Diego Lopez into an athletic save.

Kento: What's the name of the San Lorenzo GK? Santa Claus? Awful goalkeeping allows Bale to score the second goal for Real Madrid.

SUBSTITUTION

Real Madrid 2-0 San Lorenzo

Time for an attacking San Lorenzo change. Leandro Romagnoli replaces Gonzalo Veron for the South American champions. Even Juan Sebastian Veron in his prime (the Inter Milan version not the Manchester United one) wouldn't help San Lorenzo now I suspect...

Real Madrid 2-0 San Lorenzo

Gareth Bale fancies another goal now. The Welshman is at the heart of another Madrid attack, bursting forward in a central position, only to be hacked down by Julio Buffarini. The San Lorenzo man doesn't win the ball, but he does earn himself a yellow card.

Real Madrid 2-0 San Lorenzo

Enzo Kalinski reacts
AP

The Pope might be San Lorenzo's most famous fan, but I don't even think his prayers will help the Argentine side now. However, they do produce their best effort, moments after Gareth Bale's goal, as Enzo Kalinski's sharp volley flies over the Madrid goal.

GOAL

Real Madrid 2-0 San Lorenzo - Gareth Bale

Gareth Bale celebrates

This is not going to go down as Gareth Bale's finest goal - but he doesn't care. Neither does Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti, who raises both clenched fists in the warm Moroccan air.

The Welshman is allowed the time to turn just inside the San Lorenzo box, collecting Isco's pass before tamely shooting towards goal. But San Lorenzo keeper Sebastian Torrico can only fumble, rather pathetically, into his own net.

Real Madrid 1-0 San Lorenzo

San Lorenze, who are the South American champions remember, almost needed binoculars to grab a glimpse of the Madrid goal in a one-sided first half. But they must have been given a half-time rocket - because they're straight up on the attack.

Pablo Barrientos swings in an early corner before veteran defender Mario Yepes fails to hit the target.

KICK-OFF

Real Madrid 1-0 San Lorenzo

The referee toots his whistle and that, unless I'm sadly mistaken, means we are back under way.

Both sets of players emerge from the Marrakech tunnel. Fifa president Sepp Blatter, looking rather like a ruling king observing his people, sits in a grand throne-type seat as he waits for the second half to begin. Next to him is a young lad, who I believe is a member of the Moroccan Royal Family. It's who you know kids...

Festive cheer for Barcelona

And after the final whistle against Cordoba, it was time for the Barca boys to crack open the bubbly. Club president Josep Maria Bartomeu went down to the dressing room to toast his players and coaches ahead of the Christmas break, with Luis Enrique, Xavi, Andres Iniesta, Lionel Messi and Sergio Busquets happy to raise a glass.

And, after a trophyless 2014, I'm sure Bartomeu's Christmas speech also included a gentle reminder that he wants to see silverware in 2015.

Festive cheer for Barca

Spanish La Liga

While La Liga leaders Madrid are sunning themselves on this jolly in Marrakech (and hardly breaking sweat while they're at it), the rest of the Spanish top-flight are trying to catch them.

Nearest rivals Barcelona moved within one point of Madrid going into Spain's winter break after

a thumping 5-0 home win against Cordoba.

Spain forward Pedro blasted in after 72 seconds, before Luis Suarez poked in his first La Liga goal shortly after half-time. Gerard Pique's header and a brace from Lionel Messi clinched an easy win.

HALF-TIME

Real Madrid 1-0 San Lorenzo

Madrid goalscorer Sergio Ramos sticks a reassuring arm around his goalkeeper Iker Casillas as they stroll off for a half-time cup of tea. Perhaps Casillas feels a bit lonely seeing as he has been a lonely spectator for most of this match. Perhaps the Real Madrid players should have a half-time cup of mulled wine each - that might help increase the entertainment value after the break.
