Real Madrid was the favorite for this match. The royal team made several changes to the club before the season. Among others Sergio Ramos passed away, but it seems that the most important turn occurred on the coach’s bench. Real leads Carlo Ancelotia again. Italy was placed in the first team, among others for David Alaba, who made his debut in an official match.
In the first half, the Kings had an advantage in possession of the ball, but they could not penetrate the opponent’s defense. Active in the Deportivo Alaves half is Karim Benzema, who was constantly trying to score the opening goal. He was close in the 35th minute when he decided to shoot from outside the penalty area – but football missed Deportivo’s goal by a few metres.
Ancelotti’s team also had to watch out for the hosts’ attacks. The most dangerous in the first half came in the 38th minute. After a play from the right, Luis Rioga tried to defeat Courtois, but the ball fell into the higher goal. There was a negative tie until the end of the first half.
The goal bag opened shortly after the start of the second half. In the 48th minute, Eden Hazard brilliantly raised the ball to Karim Benzema, who shot with a direct kick from a few meters away, Real Madrid in front. Eight minutes later the score was 2-0. Nacho slipped into Deportivo’s penalty area and managed to guide the ball into the net with the tip of his boot.
Real Madrid’s players were advancing non-stop and in the 62nd minute the score was 3: 0. Karim Benzema found himself at his best in the opponent’s penalty area, taking the ball and in a slight confusion he put it in the net. However, the hosts did not hang a white towel. And in the 65th minute, Thibaut Courtois missed an opponent in his team’s penalty area, and the referee pointed without hesitation “to the lime”.
Joselo approached the ball and may have reduced the size of the defeat. The host team can still dream of getting points away from Real, but that took two goals.
Carlo Ancelotti’s men managed to gain complete control of the match and did not let victory slip away. The result of the match was decided in extra time by Junior Vinicius, who was helped by David Alaba, to defeat the goalkeeper with a header.
