Another switch for Valencia as Vallejo comes on for Koindredi…. curious with the VCF player already coming on earlier! Fifteen minutes remain at the Bernabéu and the pattern the game has taken is ideal for Carlo Ancelotti as the Italian coach turns his thoughts to the Super Cup next week with the semi-final vs. FC Barcelona next week.
Free for Madrid as Asensio shapes to shoot but the Mallorca born player drives the ball straight into the Valencia wall. Courtois called into action and saves majestically as Wass almost finds the corner with a fine shot.
Goooooool. Vinicius nods into an empty net after Cillissen could only palm the Asensio shot into open space. Game over at the Bernabéu for Valencia. Time for Bordalas to make some changes. The VCF team were designed to defend but the scoreline changes matters now for Valencia.
Goooooool. Vinicius plays a one-two with Benzema and the Brazilian slots home after some fine individual skill. The goal will have offered a degree of calm for Real Madrid’s interests with the onus now on Valencia to take the game to the home side.
Great strike from the Frenchman but doubts exist about the validity of the penalty kick. As they say… referee’s decisoon is final !
