At the stage Afredo-di-Stefano, the Real Madrid has, however, been mauled. It took the left post of Courtois to push a shot from Rodrigo (14th), a response of the VAR to cancel an order of this same Rodrigo (24th, see below) and a beautiful parade of Courtois in front of Kondogbia (43rd) for the team of Zidane is not led at the break.
The return of fire Asensio
For a long time blocked by Valencia and his defence was well organised around the surprising Hugo Guillamón (20 years), the Real Madrid has accelerated several notches after half-time. Eden Hazard has been the detonator and the opening of the score, Benzema has galvanized the people of Madrid. Just entered in the game for his first minutes of game of the season after his serious injury to his knee last summer – Marco Asensio has made the break on his first touch of the ball by picking a center of Ferland Mendy (74th). Before that Karim Benzema was able to conclude the evening with a sublime sequence in the area (87th) and a strike in the top corner. One of the goals of the season in la Liga.
The player : Hazard confirms
If Benzema has obviously taken all the light, Eden Hazard has confirmed that he could be the key man to the end of the season the Real. After his comeback against Eibar on Sunday (3-1), following months of struggling with his seed to an ankle, the Belgian has been in all of the shots this Thursday. He first stumbled on Cillessen (11th, 17th), and his centre in front of the empty net was a thrill (52nd). But the old master to play, Chelsea has unlocked the encounter of an action of great class, a one-two with Modric 30 yards from the goal, penetration, full-axis, and a ball that is offset in the run of Benzema (60th). It has, however, lacked clarity in order to mark just after (63rd). More than promising.
The fact : the disallowed goal from Rodrigo
The decision of José María Sánchez Martínez will surely feed many debates in Spain in the next few hours. At the 24th minute, after four minutes of interruption due to video-refereeing, the referee experienced was denied a goal from Rodrigo, while the readings of the action seemed to be multiple.
