Real Madrid vs Leganes
By the help of Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale and Sergio Ramos goals real madrid seal 4-1 win.
As it happened-
Real Madrid made it three wins after era called post-Cristiano Ronaldo era with a comfortable victory over Leganes.
Madrid may no longer be without their best forward winner Cristiano Ronaldo, but they have “completed” their squad, as Julen Lopetegui put it, with the return of Mariano Diaz from Lyon.
Earlier the hosts took an early lead when Bale did splendid work with Dani Carvajal’s headed cross inside the first 10 minutes and looked in complete control.However, Leganes were back level when Casemiro tripped Javi Eraso inside the penalty area and Andre Carrillo, who is on loan from Southampton, ensured Thibaut Courtois would not get a clean sheet on his debut by sending him the wrong way.
But Benzema came to the rescue with his two goals after that captain Sergio Ramos did final goal and seal win for real madrid.
Finally two goals from Karim Benzema and a Gareth Bale strike helped Real Madrid to a comfortable 4-1 win over Leganes.
Real Madrid: Courtois; Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo; Modric, Casemiro, Kroos; Bale, Benzema, Asensio
Leganes: Cuéllar; Juanfran, Bustinza, Siovas, Jonathan Silva; Gumbau, Rubén Pérez, Eraso; El Zhar, Carrillo, Santos
According to analysis of Ben Hayward, who was very impressed with Lopetegui’s side tonight.
“Real Madrid have played some fantastic football tonight, especially in the second half. Bale and Benzema, ably assisted by Asensio, are showing that the European champions are really not missing Cristiano Ronaldo at all right now. And the decision not to go out and splash the cash on a big-name, Galactico-style signing seems absolutely justified at the moment”
